Favorite question on a tour: “Why did you choose to attend Clemson University?” My Mom is a Clemson Alumna and I grew up hearing about her college experience, we always cheered on the Tigers, and whenever we would wear our Clemson gear people would say “Go Tigers!”. Clemson has always held a special place in my heart even before I visited the campus. Being a student has made my love grow even more for this institution!
