THE 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 3 hours of college credit.

When is this program? 

Summer 2020: July 5th ‐ July 24th 

What will I be doing?

This summer, PWE will be conducted using a virtual format. Students will have the chance to meet Clemson undergraduate/graduate students majoring in Science, Mathematics, or Engineering (STEM). They will also enjoy a wide array of virtual games and activities with current Clemson STEM students.

Why should I participate?

Students who have participated in the program say that it gives you a jumpstart on your college career. Freshman year can bring many changes, and this program helps make the transition easier. It gives you a good foundation and provides meaningful connections that can last a lifetime. Check out the info session to hear from some of our PWE alumni!
