60 Years of Integration Celebration
On January 28, 1963, Harvey Gantt became the first Black student to enter Clemson University. Gantt earned a Bachelor of Architecture and graduated from Clemson University with honors in 1965. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Harvey Gantt’s enrollment at Clemson, the Clemson Black Alumni Council (CBAC), introduced the Harvey B. Gantt Scholarship Endowment. The purpose of this fund is to provide academic scholarship to recruit and retain black students with special preference given to South Carolina residents and entering freshmen.
