About

We Were First Generation College Students

Becoming a Clemson Tiger is exciting but becoming the first Tiger in your family is both exciting and an honor. The transition to college can be very exciting and sometimes quite overwhelming. With this unique season of life comes many "firsts" but you don't have to experience all of them alone. We are proud of our 1st-generation college students and want you to know you belong here!

CAFLS has excellent faculty and staff who were also first-generation college students. Get to know some of them....
