Rhetorics, communication and information design Ph.D. candidate Shauna Chung teaches a class of undergraduate students.

“What I’ve learned thus far is this: We’re attached to so many things in life, and to say that each must stay contained in individual boxes compromises the richness of the human experience. So, I’m endeavoring to find the various things that I’m attached to – memories, personal passions, academic interests – and tie them together. What better place to do this than at Clemson?”
