Around Campus & Student Life
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I opted to stay in the area for my undergraduate studies in architecture and worked for a couple of years in two firms near Chicago. I gained some valuable experience, but still wanted my Masters of Architecture in order to continue to advance within the field. On my visit to Clemson University, the director sat down with me personally to answer all of my questions. I was instantly sold. I may not have known it when I was younger, but I was always born a Tiger!
The Clemson Corps maintains the Scroll of Honor to honor those Clemson alumni who made the ultimate sacrifice - those who gave their lives in service to their country.
To date, 470 alumni have been identified who were killed from WWI through the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Located on campus at the corner of Fort Hill Street and Williamson Road, the Scroll of Honor is the realization of a long-held desire to create a perpetual memorial near the football stadium. In 1942 Memorial Stadium was named to honor Clemson alumni who died in the line of duty, but until now there has been no mention at the stadium of those who died serving their country.
