Around Campus & Student Life
Michael Utley graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in Communication in ’96 and went to work as a sales executive in NYC. After years of toiling at a job that he had no real passion for, he decided to pack it in and return to school. After doing some research, Clemson stood out over all the rest. According to Michael, the program offered here is prestigious and backed by amazing faculty who "offer all of the support a student could possibly need."
After he obtains his Masters, he intends to go on and pursue a PhD. It is his intention to share the wealth of knowledge he has gained during his time here at Clemson with future students for the rest of his career.
Fort Hill was the home of John C. Calhoun, South Carolina's pre-eminent 19th century statesman, from 1825 until his death in 1850. The antebellum plantation home, office and kitchen are furnished mostly with family artifacts.
After an extensive two-year restoration project, Fort Hill reopened in spring 2003 for its bicentennial year. Fort Hill was named a national treasure by the Save America's Treasures program, and its artifacts are currently undergoing a comprehensive conservation program funded by this federal grant and matching funds.
Clemson University, one of the country's top public universities, combines the best of small-college teaching and big-time science, engineering and technology.
With nearly half the classes at Clemson having fewer than 20 students, Clemson professors get to know their students and explore innovative ways of teaching. It's one reason Clemson's retention and graduation rates rank among the highest in the country among public schools. It's why Clemson continues to attract some of the country's best students who seek intellectual challenge.
With its college-town, lakefront setting against a backdrop of mountains and forests, Clemson is characterized by a strong sense of community, a commitment to service and a love of winning - in academics
With a legacy (brother, father and great-grandfather) and growing up in the upstate of South Carolina, there was a lot of Clemson in me before I ever decided to attend. As an alumna, I have made ties that have gained me employment, enriched those work experiences, and routinely connect me to others around the country. Clemson was the obvious choice with my family's history paired with the exceptional architectural program and the opportunity to spend a semester in Italy, not to mention football season.
