The University campus is home to the 270-acre S.C. Botanical Garden, one of the Southeast's finest collections of plants and trees for teaching, research and public enjoyment. It also features nature based sculptures by internationally recognized artists, children's nature programs, annual festivals, public lectures and nature walks.

Students and faculty can gain international experience through the college's cooperative exchange agreements with schools in France, Scotland, Costa Rica and other countries.

Clemson's Sonoco Packaging Science Laboratory is the only public-access packaging laboratory in the Southeast and one of only a few in the world available to private industry for research.
