“I think what we give is a sense of family and community even though it’s a relatively big school. I think you can go onto other campuses of similar size and just feel like a number. People legitimately care about each other here. Sitting in the Office of the Provost, I see it. Every decision we make, the first question is, ‘How does it impact students?’”

“There are a few things Clemson University is able to deliver that offer a unique experience. One of them is the Creative Inquiry mechanism, where students can get one-on-one mentorship with professors, working closely with them and in small teams on research projects to get the in-depth research experience they need to apply to grad schools and really cement their skills in their discipline.”
