Clemson Clubs around the country — and beyond — have been busy this fall. We’ve received updates from groups as close as York, South Carolina, and as far away as London.
Members of the Jacksonville Club wanted to gather to cheer on the Tigers against Appalachian State. They were looking for a place to get together, share some food and watch on a big screen. The San Marco Theatre, an art deco, eat-in movie theatre, filled the bill and even posted “Go Tigers” on the marquis. Approximately 40 folks attended; club president Ashley Helmick ’11 reports that about 70 percent were new faces.
The York County Club hosted approximately 300 for a send-off party last fall, celebrating 80 students as they headed off to Clemson for the year. You can view a drone video of that event by going to clemson.world and clicking on “Lifelong Tigers.”
In Louisville, Tigers gathered to tailgate at Churchill Downs before heading to the stadium to cheer on the team. And in London, a group of Clemson alumni are beginning the process of forming a Clemson Club.
The Baltimore/Washington, D.C. Clemson Club has had a number of activities this fall, including their annual Crab Fest, “Six Degrees of Clemson Professional Networking,” a reception at the Slovenian Embassy, and “An Insider’s Look” into the Clemson admission process.
