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.

“Starting out, I heard a lot that the reason you come isn't the reason you stay. What really keeps people here is that it is a brotherhood, and that's what I've enjoyed a lot with every organization I've been involved in here at Clemson. You grow with these people.”

Campus Culture That Promotes Family

Nursing professor Janice Garrison Lanham smiles, wearing her white coat and stethoscope.

“I completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees in nursing at Clemson. My husband, Drew, is a distinguished alumni professor and an alumni master teacher at Clemson. He also completed his undergraduate and graduate degrees here. Our children both graduated from Clemson. We are a Clemson family! We love it here! This place, these hills. We love the people and the campus and appreciate the opportunities our Clemson experiences have afforded us, both personally and professionally.”
