Spring Break 2021 – Staff Spotlight

March 15, 2021

While the Clemson Online staff is hard at work through spring break, our pets at home are relaxing for us!

We’re spotlighting a few of our staff members this week, letting you know what they do and how it supports Clemson’s mission. And because they’re so cute, we thought you might like to see how our pets are spending their Spring Break while our staff stays busy.
