One of my favorite things to do now that the big trees near Memorial stadium have been replaced, is to drive or walk from Fort Hill to the stadium. (It was nice before the stadium view is really open now) Its a short walk (downhill) and it gives you sense a of the grandeur from above. Also the underground nature of the lower decks is pretty dang cool. I attached what the Texas A&M announcers thought about it in 2005.

As you approach the stadium from that direction (east endzone) there is a Memorial for clemson grads killed in battle, that connects to that end of the Stadium. It is really cool and the military history of Clemson is part of the fabric of the region as well. You can get a preview of that here http://earlycommit1.com/clemson360/vtour-fb/tour.html In the bottom right drop down menu click "Scroll of Honor" its a new element on campus but they did a great job with it. Also, the lead architect did a short piece with SCETV that really explains everything. it begins at the 39min mark. http://www.scetv.org/index.php/making_it_grow/show/making_it_grow_11-13-2012/

Moving on to the top of of the Hill. you can see Howards Rock and see how steep that Hill really is. I've never taken a guest there who wasn't astounded. And if you are wondering< "why run down the Hill? its because the field house was not far from there at one time and coming down the hill to the field was just the closest, easiest way to get there. No fanfare just just players coming out the field house for pregame warmups.
