Dear Clemson Family: Sportsmanship

September 4, 2015

We’re all excited about the start of a new semester and a new football season, and I know that thousands of Tiger fans will join us to watch the season kick off against Wofford on Sept. 5 in Death Valley. We have an exciting home schedule ahead of us this season, which includes big games against teams such as Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and Florida State.

Clemson is known across the nation for its commitment to sportsmanship and hospitality. The university has been recognized by the Division IA Athletic Directors Association as one of five “showcase institutions” for sportsmanship programs. It’s because students, faculty, staff and alumni know that the phrase “Solid Orange” is about more than wearing orange on Fridays. It’s also about recognizing that when we wear orange, we represent the university and all of its history and traditions.

Enjoy the season but be safe, courteous to our visitors and respectful of fans – ours and theirs – who are there to enjoy the game. Welcome visiting fans to campus, and demonstrate good sportsmanship to the players, coaches and officials on the field. We’re proud of the Tigers and passionate about winning. But the Clemson Nation is known for winning with class. Thanks for your support.

Go Tigers!!


Jim Clements
