I teach AP World History at J.L. Mann H.S. in Greenville, S.C. I took a group of my students on a tour of the British Isles and we visited Scotland, Ireland, England, and Wales over a 16 day period. This photo was taken at Stonehenge near the end of our trip.
My friends and I were studying abroad in Spain and booked a trip to the infamous San Fermin Festival, in Pamplona, Spain. We never thought we would do the notoriously dangerous “Running of the Bulls,” but when we arrive, our adrenaline kicked in and we decided to run. We all agreed, it was the craziest experience of our lives. We took this picture 20 minutes before the bulls were released.

Members of Clemson Fire & EMS participated in the 9/11 Silent Walk in Charleston on 9/11/2015. This walk was to honor the 343 firefighters that lost their lives on that day. CUFD personnel donned their turnout gear and air packs and walked 5.5 miles over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge and back to pay tribute. The hose pack being carried had the names of all 343 firefighters & their assignments for that day written on it. The hose pack was passed back and forth from person to person and weighed an additional 50 pounds.

One of the benefits of my job is the international travel and the time to do some sight seeing. As a general fan of historical sites and churches, I took advantage of my recent visit to the Bonne/Cologne region of Germany and visited the “Dom.” The picture does not do the size of the cathedral justice! (via Wiki) The cathedral is Germany’s most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day. The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spires (after Ulm Minster. Its two huge spires give it the largest façade of any church in the world. The choir has the largest height to width ratio, 3.6:1, of any medieval church.)
Every year during MLK weekend, the San Francisco Clemson Alumni Group takes a trip up to Lake Tahoe for a weekend of skiing, snowboarding, and fun!
