Clemson University was founded in 1889 as a land-grant institution in the upstate of South Carolina. It was donated by Thomas Green Clemson, who willed his house and the surrounding area to the state of South Carolina to create a technical and scientific university. When it first opened its doors in 1893, Clemson was a military institution with less than 500 students.
Clemson University is comprised of five colleges: the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences, the College of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities, the College of Business and Behavioral Science, the College of Engineering and Science, and the College of Health, Education and Human Development. There are more than 80 undergraduate degree programs.
Time Magazine's Public College of the Year in 2001.
Clemson is one of the best college environments in the country. Its just the right size and you get to experience the true southern hospitality of South Carolina. The social scene will provide something for everyone and during the fall a home football transforms the town. Everyone wears orange and shows their spirit. "Solid Orange It's About Pride." Clemson has one of the loudest stadiums in the country, had the largest "ESPN College GameDay" audience ever in 2006, The Tigers school the "lamecocks" at football, and Death Valley is where The Tigers run!!!
