What is Clemson World?

Clemson World has informed, engaged and entertained the alumni and friends of Clemson University since the early 1970s.
Our mission is simple: to tell the stories of Clemson. Through creative and innovative writing, design, photography, video and technology, we communicate the determined spirit of Clemson’s alumni, faculty, staff and students. We offer a glimpse into the personality of the institution through the stories and images of her people.

Clemson World is published three times a year, in January, May and September. The Summer/Fall issue (September) is mailed to all alumni and friends who have ever made a gift to the University, as well as to recent graduates and all faculty and staff. The other two issues are mailed to alumni and friends who have made a gift in the current or previous year, as well as recent graduates and all faculty and staff.

Circulation varies from 45,000 to 85,000 an issue.
