It’s ‘Clemson Day’ in South Carolina

Caleb Browder // Alumnus
Tillman Hall is one of the most well-known buildings on Clemson’s campus.

Today, Tiger fans across the Palmetto State are celebrating “Clemson Day.”

Clemson Day is an annual South Carolina holiday meant to celebrate Clemson’s research and education achievements, as well as its strong presence in the state. The holiday is created by the South Carolina legislature each year and typically falls in late February or early March.

“Clemson’s campus is the entire State of South Carolina, with the university having a presence in every county,” the legislation reads. “Clemson University is a Tier 1 Research Institution by the Carnegie Foundation, which puts it in a class with the top 115 universities in the nation in terms of research.”

Clemson Day is also meant to celebrate the University’s broad influence across the Palmetto State.

“For more than one hundred thirty years, Clemson University has continued to fulfill the covenant between its founder and the people of South Carolina as a ‘high seminary of learning’ and improve the economy of the State through its historical land-grant responsibilities of teaching, research, and extended public service,” the bill adds.

For the South Carolina legislature, Clemson is worth celebrating.
