Surroundings That Inspire Gratitude

A walk across Clemson’s campus transports visitors from rolling hills to Death Valley and farther still to Lake Hartwell. The sound of the carillon greets those within earshot of Tillman Hall, and often, the sight of an orange and purple sunset signals the end of a day spent in Clemson.

“I wanted to be connected to this school more than anything. I wanted to be a part of the Clemson Family. Being connected to my school is very important to me, and the best way I could is being involved in groups. That has been the best decision I have made during my time at Clemson. … It’s just been so nice to get plugged into so many different outlets on campus and then meet people from all over campus.”

“The family feel of Clemson has been amazing. … At Clemson, I’ve experienced treating people how you want to be treated and helping others when it’s needed. Carrying that into my career will be important.”
