PEER/WISE Experience

What is the PEER/WISE Experience?

Clemson’s PEER/WISE Experience (PWE) program offers a glimpse of what your freshman year will be like. This three week, optional introductory program is a great way to meet other students in your major while taking introductory classes in General Engineering, Chemistry, Physics and Calculus. In addition, you’ll earn 2 hours of college credit.

What will I be doing?

You’ll live on campus and experience a college atmosphere complete with dining halls and classes. PWE counselors are Clemson undergraduate/graduate students majoring in Science, Mathematics or Engineering (STEM). They’ll live with you to assist during the program and oversee activities in the residence halls.


You’ll find a variety of engineering, math and science classes. These introductory classes review some of the necessary objectives for achieving success at the college level. They’re designed to identify areas that may require further review while providing insight on real classroom experiences.

We will also provide a unique opportunity to learn how to study, apply critical thinking and problem solving skills.

  • General Engineering - learn about the many Engineering majors at Clemson and find tools to help you in your first year of engineering.
  • Calculus - prepare for your first college Calculus course with this introductory review class.
  • Chemistry and Physics - prepare for your first college Chemistry or Physics course with this introductory review class.
