    Four step guide to becoming a Clemson fan

    Disappointed that your kid didn’t pick your alma mater? Time to get over it, mom and dad — you’ve got just a few weeks to get #AllIn before football season begins. Lucky for you, we’re here to help.
    Buy some Clemson gear
    There’s no better way to tell the world you’re a Clemson fan than by wearing a Clemson t-shirt or putting a Tiger Paw on the bumper of your car. Pick up some gear from the campus bookstore or the shops downtown while you’re here for orientation.
    Participate in Solid Orange Fridays
    Every Friday, Clemson fans wear orange. It’s a show of pride in our school and brings the Clemson family together.
    Learn the alma mater and cadence count
    The alma mater is played at every Clemson football game. As for the cadence count, it can happen anywhere — fans love to start one when they see another Clemson fan out in public. Don’t get caught off guard.
    Hate on the Gamecocks
    For those of you who don’t pay attention to sports (or are from out-of-state), the South Carolina Gamecocks are Clemson’s rival. As such, hating on them is required. That’s how rivalries work.
