England Rugby World Cup 2015: Jessica Loudermilk ’10

As a Clemson Women’s Rugby alumna, I’ve been waiting four years for the chance to go to the Rugby World Cup and visit England for the first time. I had the opportunity to see my favorite team, the Australia Wallabies, play two of the biggest matches in the tournament. I also got to see USA play South Africa. This photo is from the Australia vs. England match, where the Wallabies knocked the host nation out of the tournament.

Europe: Christopher Tjon ’08 and Joseph Robertson ’11

High school friends and tired of being engineers, Joe Robertson and Chris Tjon backpacked their way through Europe for two weeks. There were historical sites, awesome sporting events, great people, and best of all, searching for the infamous Doner Kebabs. It was an unforgettable two weeks.

Duckenfield Scholars return to campus to host symposium

Ten years ago, Clemson’s first Duckenfield Scholar, Lindsay Green-Barber, went abroad to study at Oxford. This spring, she and the 16 other Duckenfield Scholars have traveled back to Clemson to return the favor.

The group of alumni planned and executed a Clemson Global Symposium, held in March, to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of a program they consider life changing. Oxford University professor Ken Addison provided the keynote address.

The Christopher J. Duckenield Scholars Program was established by the family and friends of Chris Duckenfield, who was Clemson’s vice provost for computing and information technology. He was also an alumnus of St. Peter’s College of the University of Oxford. The program enables one or two members of the Calhoun Honors College, who demonstrate extraordinary talent, motivation, commitment and ability, to attend St. Peter’s College. Duckenfield Scholars also are expected to demonstrate the ability to adapt to the tutorial style of learning that exemplifies university education at Oxford and elsewhere in the United Kingdom.
