Clemson History and Geography Alumni

We in the Department of History and Geography have been honored to teach so many wonderfully talented students over the years. We could not be more proud of the legacy that our majors and minors have created as they have made their way into the world in so many ways.  From those who continued their studies in history and geography, to those who have used the skills learned here to blossom in other avenues, we are increadibly proud to call them alumni.

Alumni Spotlight

Julie Townley

After graduating from Clemson with a History and Secondary Education degree, Julie Townley received her M.Ed. in College Student Affairs Administration. She now works as a Community Director with Housing and Residence Life at the University of North Texas, where she puts to use the skills she learned at Clemson. The "Clemson History Department helped me grow as a student and a scholar,” Julie observes, and “I felt incredibly prepared for the level of reading, analyzing, and writing necessary for graduate level work. Reflecting on her time in Hardin Hall, Julie says her "favorite memory" was taking a World History class with Dr. Steve Marks. Dr. Marks "stood on the computer podium in the large Hardin lecture hall and called himself Steven the Great," and “in general, he made history fun" and relatable.” In fact, she used his lectures as a "model" for her own classes.
