"We are humbled because we have tried to remain in-tune to the Clemson Family and give back. We have really enjoyed being part of the Clemson Family. Our involvement on various boards opened some doors to the great things going on at the University. It also opened our eyes to some opportunities to give back to Clemson."

Roger Troutman, who along with his wife Kathy, were named the 2019 Herb Coughlan Memorial Family of the Year

Priority Areas

Capital Projects

The Division of Student Affairs recognizes the importance first-class facilities have on ensuring the best Clemson Experience. Currently, we are raising private funds for two important projects which will significantly impact current and future generations of students.

The Samuel J. Cadden Chapel will provide Clemson students a unique space to meditate, reflect and celebrate. Ken and Mary Cadden made an initial $1.5 million pledge to build this beautiful chapel as a tribute to their beloved son and as a gift to the people of Clemson University. The Board of Trustees gave initial approval to move forward with the chapel's design in February 2018. To learn more about giving to the chapel, click HERE.


The Snow Family Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center provides students with opportunities to take part in experiential learning, competitive sports, student employment, lake activities such as kayaking and swimming, internships and leadership. Dave and Lynnette Snow made an initial $2.4 million pledge to set this ambitious, revolutionary project into motion in October 2014. The project earned Phase II state-level approval in December 2017 to begin construction on a new Outdoor Education Center and Champion Intramural and Club Sports Field, joining the existing LoConte Family Field already on site.

Parents Fund

You can help enhance the Clemson Experience for students through contributions to the Parents Fund. Contributions are used to support non-budgeted needs that enhance the educational opportunities and safety of all Clemson students. Some of the services supported by the Parents Fund include the Barnes Center and U-NITES!, a social programming initiative operating under the Campus Life umbrella.
