Favorite question on a tour: Why did you pick Clemson over Miami? I wanted to make an impact on my campus and find my community. There is truly no place like Clemson, and that does sound cliché, but I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. The academics are great, sport teams excel, I can get involved in different organizations I am passionate about, and the Clemson Family has a special meaning. I have had some of my best memories here, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I always believe the philosophy, “Everything happens for a reason” and Clemson has helped me find my “Why” in life and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
