                   “I came to Clemson with the mindset that I
                    was ready to be a leader and get involved,
                    but I never thought it could be as much as it
                    was. I never thought I could be as engaged
                    with my major and my college as I am.”

         Clemson University is a place where community is
         encouraged. Our students are always talking about
         how connected they feel to the campus, the town, the
         faculty and the people they interact with every day.

         Throughout these pages, we want you to discover
         pieces of our campus life, academics and the University
         spirit from the students who live it every day.

         Being here offers a sense of belonging very quickly.
         Whether it’s driving into campus on a road painted
         with our trademark Tiger Paws, seeing the names of
         alumni memorialized on brick walkways or getting the
         chance to talk to faculty during a tour, Clemson offers
         a different kind of “feel” than anywhere else.

         We embrace who you are and who you want to be
         through clubs, organizations and the 80+ majors
         offered among seven distinct colleges. And we
         encourage you to bring your own personality into
         everything you do on and off campus.

         Clemson embodies more than a great education.
         We are the deafening cheers of 80,000 fans as the
         Tigers run into Death Valley. We are the applause
         at each award ceremony celebrating innovations
         and excellence.

         We are a part of something bigger, and we want
         you to be a part of something greater.

                          Let’s get started — together.

                                                    Like so many students going to college,
                                                    Piper Starnes wasn’t quite sure what to
                                                    expect from Clemson. The sophomore
                                                    performing arts major from Tega Cay,
                                                    South Carolina, knew a lot of her
                                                    classmates would be joining her here, but
                                                    she wasn’t exactly sure that Clemson was
                                                    for her.

                                                    An audition is what would change her
                                                    college path and almost everything she
                                                    expected from a small-town college with
                                                    big aspirations for each of its students.

                                                    “I was looking out of state for college,
                                                    but when I did my audition at Clemson,
                                                    there was just something I loved about the
                                                    environment and faculty,” Piper says. “I
                                                    forgot everything else and only wanted to
                                                    come here after that.”

                                                    The difference, she says, came in the little
                                                    things. Things like the greeting she got
                                                    from faculty and students during that
                                                    audition and how it was more welcoming
                                                    than other places. Elsewhere, Piper felt
                                                    she was told what her path needed to be.
                                                    But at Clemson, people were asking her
                                                    what she wanted to do and, as important,                 There were a handful of professors who                 “A lot of my friends are in fields vastly

  Scholars Program and the Honors
  College and seeing the kind of effort
  and intentionality that went into
  everything at Clemson, that actually
  turned me away from other offers.”

  Roann realized pretty quickly that
  Clemson not only had faculty who
  would support her, but there were
  opportunities for research, rigorous
  classes and extensive resources that
  would have her ready for the MCAT,
  medical school and beyond. Using
  programs like Peer-Assisted Learning
  (PAL) and a pre-med professions
  adviser, Roann has been able to gain
  valuable advice about internships,                                                                 SCOTT DRIGGERS, PHYSICS
