General Information

Clemson University, located in Clemson, South Carolina, was founded in 1889. Founder Thomas Clemson died in 1888 and stipulated in his will that his estate be used to open a college for agriculture and mechanical arts. The school opened as Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina in 1893. Originally a male-only military school, it opened its doors to civilians and women in 1955, and the first black student was admitted in 1963. The school gained university status and its current name in 1964. Today, Clemson enrolls more than 25,000 students and counting each year. The school colors are Clemson Orange and Regalia (purple), and its athletic nickname is the tigers.

Clemson University Academic and Research Opportunities

The school also owns more than 29,000 acres of agricultural and forest land in South Carolina for research purposes.
