Through an Alpha Phi Alpha event freshman year, I met a Clemson alumnus who encouraged me to apply for a co-op with GE Aviation. I applied and was accepted for their internship/summer co-op program. For the past three summers, I’ve done a different rotation at their facilities across the country. Through this co-op, I was able to learn what materials science really is.

Student Highlight

Mechanical engineering major Morgan Daughtridge poses with her graduation cap in front of Tillman Hall.

Clemson is a great combination of atmosphere, spirit and academics. At a lot of other schools, you have to compromise one for the other, but at Clemson there is such a work hard, play hard mentality! Students spend hours on end studying to have a successful academic career but then spend Saturdays screaming at the top of their lungs cheering on the Tigers! It’s the best of both worlds here.
