His trusty orange cape none the worst for wear, Terence Martin, a proud Tiger alum with a B.A. in Sociology, (and a law degree from that other university in S.C.) actually flew commercial to represent Clemson at the f0ur-day comics, movies and TV celebration at the San Diego Convention Center from July 21 – 24.

Our family toured Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia for our summer vacation this year. We experienced some amazingly different culture and food and had lots of fun while we were there. We took several pictures with the Tiger Rag to represent Clemson in some of the most beautiful locations we visited. If you ever have a chance to tour that area with an English speaking guide, take it! It was absolutely a trip of a lifetime! This picture is Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The Clemson men’s soccer team spent two weeks in Argentina in May 2016 on an international tour that included two cities (Buenos Aires and Rosario), playing five friendlies, attending three professional games, visiting many tourist sites (some related and some unrelated to soccer) and countless memories that will last a lifetime. This picture was taken in La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires following a special day that included a tour of the facilities of Boca Juniors, one of the most popular professional teams in Argentina, and a highly competitive and emotional game of street soccer against some of the locals.

The attached photo is of the 2015-2016 Steel Bridge Team atop the “Y” in Provo, Utah. The “Y” is a famous landmark for students and alumni at BYU. We were there competing in the ASCE National Competition of Steel Bridge Teams. There were 48 schools from 5 different countries. Our team took first place in the regional competition (for the second year in a row) back at the end of March to earn our position at Nationals. We took 23rd out of 48 this year at Nationals, of course we expected nothing less than #1! Nevertheless that was the result and we are honored to have had the opportunity to attend.
The Steel Bridge Team is a creative inquiry for Civil Engineering majors. We designed, fabricated, and painted the bridge all on our own. Which is not all that common among all the schools in the nation believe it or not. A lot of schools contract professional fabricators or machine shops to design and build their bridges. However, we as Clemson students hold ourselves to the highest standard, “The Best”.
In the picture the members are (from left to right): Dr Weichiang Pang (advisor), David McCullough 16′, Jonathon Broyles 18′, Joe Capriola 16′, Nathan Flaugher 17′, Mike Chute 16′, Shawn Waters 16′, Tom Sharp 17′, Ryan Hull 17′, and Nick Andryusky 17′. Not pictured are Nora 16′ and Taif Albayati 18′. They were unable to attend because they were visiting family out of the country, but are still very much apart of the team.
