Student Highlight: John McAdams

December 5, 2022

John McAdams is a graduate student at Clemson University who also completed his undergraduate degree here as well.  John will be graduating with his Master’s in Mechanical Engineering in December 2022 and will begin working for Duke Energy’s Nuclear Power Plant in Oconee County.  John chose Clemson due to its incredible and highly-ranked engineering program and because of family affiliations.  He was recruited when his older brother attended the university to major in Civil engineering.  John was invited to participate in the PEER&WISE Summer Experience Program (PWE, formerly, FIRE).  Since then, John has served as a PEER mentor, and a tutor in the PEER&WISE Fluor Study Hall and has also served as the graduate academic enrichment coordinator.  John says he truly enjoyed his time as a mentor, tutor, and graduate assistant for the office.


From everyone at the PEER&WISE office, we are so proud of you, John, and cannot wait to see where life takes you!
