Box is a cloud storage solution adopted by Clemson as a location where users may store or share files.
In order to use Box for cloud storage, users with a valid Clemson username may log in to http://clemson.box.com. The first time they do this, they will be asked for a Clemson username and password. Their new account will then be created.
These products have been branded to incorporate the Clemson logo and provide users with a custom portal to Box.
