Finding Your Fit

Coming from a Clemson family, Juliann Lloyd assumed it would be easy to find her fit in engineering; she had dreamed of this since she fell in love with physics in 11th grade.

She found her place in Clemson’s campus life. But once into her core classes, the motivation just wasn’t there. Until she met C.J.

Juliann's Path

Finding community

Freshman year I lived in RiSE, so I felt like I came into college with family. Having convenient access to professors and common class blocks with my hall mates led to so many amazing moments — and friendships.

Leading the way

My freshman RA suggested I apply to be an RA. They placed me in Manning Hall, which is a freshman all-female residence hall. And I love it. It is just an incredible opportunity to walk with people through such a defining time in their lives.

Choosing a major

After going through the general engineering classes I chose to focus on mechanical. It felt like the broadest discipline that would allow me a lot of career flexibility.

Making a change

First semester sophomore year I was just really searching. I didn't love my mechanical engineering classes and couldn't quite figure out why. I met with my adviser who suggested that I go talk to the civil engineering advisers. And that's when I met CJ.
