The time is upon us! It’s Homecoming Weekend!
Tigerama, Tailgates, AND a night game, oh my!
For about two months you have been studying diligently; attending group meetings; and working hard on all class projects, assignments, and papers for midterm season. Maybe you have said to yourself, “Self, this weekend is Clemson’s Homecoming Weekend, and I think that I deserve to get out and have a great time.”
Perhaps you are right, but….
Here are a few things we want our students to consider:
“University Emergency Contacts”
With all of the exciting activities and things happening this weekend, we want our students to be proactive; and to make sure that you all have the emergency contacts that you need. For immediate emergency assistance, please always call 9-1-1 first!

“Student Transportation around Tigertown”
Starting today, thousands and thousands (and thousands!) of Clemson’s alum; Clemson’s local community; and even Clemson’s prospective students, will be entering Tigertown for the many events occurring this weekend. That said, we want our current students to be mindful, and to consider these safety options for transportation.
