Get Involved

Clemson University prides itself on providing opportunities to extend experiences beyond the classroom. Our students are encouraged to participate in student organizations & government, research opportunities with professors, cooperative education & internships, and study abroad experiences.

Academic Support

The role of advisors is to confirm that your plan of courses is appropriate and you are on the correct path towards graduation. Your advising appointment is an opportunity to ask questions regarding the curriculum, research opportunities, co-ops and internships, study abroad, or graduate school.
