School Tours

Bring your class on a field trip to Clemson!

As a research institution, Clemson offers many interesting and explorative opportunities for young learners. Several sites on campus graciously work with groups who would like to expose their students to the University. Because these sites are working and teaching facilities, the number of visitors and times to visit are limited, so please be sure to confirm any field trips in advance.

The contact information below will help you plan a customized field trip to ignite your students’ enthusiasm for higher education.

General tours of the campus are for prospective students currently in high school. To schedule a group tour, contact Tracey O’Kelley at or 864-656-7697. Please read our group tour guidelines before calling to schedule your tour.
