Fun Facts

  • Clemson University was originally part of the University of South Carolina as the Clemson Agricultural College. Agriculture students demanded the expansion of the agriculture department, and after the involvement of Benjamin Tillman, became a separate school.
  • Clemson University has its very own brand of blue cheese. Produced, cured, and sold right on campus, this delicacy has been made since 1941, started by a Clemson professor.
