Abby Parkison

Name: Abby Parkison

Hometown: Severna Park, Maryland

Major: Nursing

Favorite place for lunch (on campus or in town): Spill the Beans – not sure if this counts but I could eat their ice cream for literally any meal!

Favorite tour spot on campus: Watt Lawn – it’s the very first stop, so it’s my first chance to show my group how much I love Clemson and why they should love it too!

Favorite question on a tour: “What brought you to Clemson?” So many people ask this question when they hear where I’m from, and I love getting to tell them all of the things that make Clemson so special and the reason I decided to make this my home!

Clubs and Organizations you are involved in on campus: Greek Life, CUGA

Advice on how to choose a college: Don’t be afraid to ask people to hang out! Everyone is in the same boat trying to make friends, and the people you reach out to could become some of your closest friends.

Favorite Clemson Tradition: Homecoming week for sure – trying to explain it to my Mom back home made me realize it’s really something you have to experience and it’s so unique to Clemson!
