Welcome Week Student Leaders

Welcome Week Exec

Welcome Week is planned and executed by a student Executive Board throughout the previous Spring Semester. Executive Board is made of Vice Presidents and Chairs each tasked with coordinating a functional area of Welcome Week. Welcome Week Exec has served as Welcome Week Leaders prior to their leadership role. If you have served as a Welcome Week Leader and would like to serve on Exec, please see the Welcome Week TigerQuest page.

Welcome Week Leaders

Welcome Week Leaders are student volunteers who work directly with incoming students welcoming them to the campus and Clemson community. Welcome Week Leaders will help facilitate Welcome Week events and create connections with our incoming Clemson students. If you are a current Clemson student and have an interest in serving as a Welcome Week Leader, please see the Welcome Week TigerQuest page.
