Favorite question on a tour: “What does the Clemson Family mean to you?” — To me, the idea of the Clemson Family is why I tell people that if you’re just looking for a place to live for 4 years and then go about the rest of your life, don’t choose Clemson. This university and the community that you will find here is a lifelong thing. Clemson Family means that no matter where you end up 10 years down the road, you have people that love and value you in Clemson, SC who will be ready to welcome you back home with open arms!

Advice for jumping into college life: Be present in the moment! Your college years will be some of the best of your life, but it’s going to feel like life is moving 100 mph! You could miss a lot of special moments and unforgettable memories if you’re too busy looking for the next thing. Take it all in, be present in the moment and count it all blessings!
Advice on how to choose a college: Go the place where you know you there is already an encouraging and uplifting community. College is so fun and the memories you make are unforgettable, but it’s so much more special if you have people to share it with!!
