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.

“Taking advantage of all these clubs and organizations has allowed me to have more opportunities and has pushed me to be a better person and remain outgoing. … Freshman year is when I joined a lot of organizations that I am a part of, and that has allowed me to get leadership positions within them.”

“Solid Orange Fridays are things you don’t get at other schools. Clemson students really go all out on that. And my image [that summarizes Clemson] is all these students who rush the field while the team rushes up to us and singing the alma mater together. The students, the band and the team all together — it’s a unique experience every time I see it and feel it.”
