  • Ever Loyal. Innocuous words to a casual bystander. Those two words mean the world to any Clemson graduate however. Attending Clemson is an experience unlike any other and the past 4 years have shaped me for the better. Everybody has their college experience but it seems the family atmosphere surrounding Clemson is entirely different. I have run into Clemson grads in every corner of the globe and each one is proud to have gone to the greatest school in the world. This feeling hit home with me on April 2, 2014 when I attended the ring ceremony and put on my ring for the first time. It was a great feeling, and a tangible reminder that I had the privilege of going to Clemson. Leaving the university this August does not mean I am separated from the family, far from it. It is a visible mark that any other Clemson grad will easily recognize and instantly form a bond with complete strangers. I am thankful for my time in upstate South Carolina and will always consider "God's Country" home no matter where I end up in life.
