From a graduating class of 37 in 1896 to today, Clemson has become a strong force in higher education and gained national recognition in areas from academics to athletics. Throughout the past decade, the University has consistently been ranked among the top 25 public institutions by U.S. News & World Report. During this time, the number of student admission applications and prospective employee applications have almost doubled, and the number of graduate degrees awarded has more than doubled. 

It is a great time to be a Clemson Tiger!
