I got by degrees in ECE (electrical and computer engineering) in 75 and 77. I had a very good education at a price of what would be one spring break trip for a rich kid today and I have had a great career. My blood runneth orange. But I have not been on campus in years - what is it like now in terms of focus on woke or other politics versus emphasis on education, education, education?
Put it this way... while all campuses have a certain amount of wokeness and liberal politics these days, I still consider Clemson as one of the more conservative universities in the nation. Clemson is also approaching elite status in many parts of the US. I'm proud I was graduated from Clemson in 1985, and I'm even more proud that my son is now a sophomore. My blood runneth orange, and it always will!!! Go Tigers!!!
Not easy since I’m 80 plus and hours away but I notice every time I go I see “wimmens” everywhere. It sure wasn’t like that in 1964 when I walked across the stage. AND, now you can actually buy a ‘cool one’ right downtown.
I think that Clemson is quite a bit easier today than it was 50 plus years ago. What hasn’t changed?
It’s still heaven to this woodsman and ALWAYS will be.
grewing up there. Just the times, really. Buttoned down security, suspicious road blocks, very badly placed speed bumps at Prez House intersection with all that development there (should've put walkover bridges there), "High rise" condos everywhere, though surprised the Astro III theatre building remained as long as it did. It's still kinda' nice to drive back through the old-money paper route neighborhood behind the Esso Club though.
