Surroundings That Inspire Gratitude

A walk across Clemson’s campus transports visitors from rolling hills to Death Valley and farther still to Lake Hartwell. The sound of the carillon greets those within earshot of Tillman Hall, and often, the sight of an orange and purple sunset signals the end of a day spent in Clemson.

Organizations That Foster Friendships

“Since coming to school, my family says I am more confident and outgoing. Probably because Clemson students are confident and never seem like strangers. That has rubbed off on me and made me better.”

Campus Culture That Promotes Family

“When everybody’s in the student section [at football games], we’re all there for the same exact reason in that one instance. That’s certainly a special time being able to feel that community and being able to cheer and high-five with people you don’t know that are around you. That’s a great sense of community. … I don’t think anyone really takes going to Clemson for granted. I think they all know that it’s such a truly special place and there’s nowhere else in the world like it.”
