Dear Clemson Family: Sportsmanship

September 2, 2016

Dear Clemson Family,

Now that we have settled into a new semester, it is with great excitement and expectation that we usher in the 2016 football season! My family and I are looking forward to joining tens of thousands of Clemson students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans at home in Death Valley, and in stadiums around the country, to cheer on our Tigers.

Because of our football team’s success last year and the anticipation of another very successful season, the national spotlight is already shining brightly on us – on the playing field, in the stands, and on social media – so let’s continue to showcase our world-class sportsmanship and hospitality.

Clemson takes great pride in welcoming visitors to campus and demonstrating good sportsmanship to the visiting team, coaches and officials. Let’s be passionate about our Tigers, courteous to our visitors, and respectful of all fans who gather to enjoy each game. In fact, the Division IA Athletic Directors Association has designated Clemson as one of only five “showcase institutions” for sportsmanship programs. That is a tradition of which we should all be proud.

All eyes are on us, Clemson Family, so let’s set the example and remember that every time you show your pride and wear the paw, you are a representative of this great university and the entire Clemson Family.  Thank you for your support!

Go Tigers!


Jim Clements
