GLOBAL COMMUNITY – CLEMSON FAMILY
There is far more to the Clemson experience than the superior academics that make us such a sought-after university. Our students come from many different places and backgrounds. But with broad opportunities to grow personally and professionally, it’s inevitable that they all leave here with not only the ambition to do something great, but the education to follow it through.
This is a place where students can acquire new understanding and abilities, and still enjoy their college years — all of which combine to create a family of Clemson Tigers that are active citizens of a global community.
On the Map
Clemson University sits on the shores of Hartwell Lake, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, next door to the S.C. Botanical Garden. We’re located at the center of the Upstate of South Carolina, a beautiful, temperate place to live all year long. Greenville, which Forbes has recognized as one of America’s ten best downtowns, is just 30 minutes down the road. More metropolitan hubs such as Atlanta, Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, and Charleston are only a few hours’ drive away, making them popular destinations for weekend trips.
Clemson students say one of the biggest challenges they face is deciding how to spend their free time because there are so many clubs and groups to join. Fraternities and sororities, international groups, military organizations, religious groups, service clubs, sports teams, fitness programs, performing arts and more — there’s something for everyone. Looking for cultural pursuits? Check out more than 75 performances a year at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, from Broadway plays to nationally acclaimed comedians to world-class musicians.
For sports lovers, Clemson has events in every season. We cheer on 19 NCAA athletic teams including football, basketball, golf, soccer, cross-country, tennis, track and field, rowing and volleyball. The question is not, “What is there to do?” it’s, “What do I choose?”
