The Class of 1956 Academic Success Center Building

In honor of its fiftieth anniversary, Clemson’s Class of 1956 initiated a fundraising campaign for a new building in which to house academic success programs. The building opened in Spring 2012.  Dr. Theodore G. Westmoreland, a member of the Class of 1956, also established at $1.5 million endowment to support undergraduate academic success programs. We are most grateful to Dr. Westmoreland and the dedicated alumni from the Class of 1956 for their support!
