Clemson and TAMU’s military heritage speaks for itself.

Where do you guys get this ? Clemson became Clemson University in 1964. Prior to that, it was Clemson A&M. My diploma says Clemson University and I think that class was the first to be recognized as a university. Holy Cow, I guess I one of the oldest living graduates of Clemson University. No wonder I get tired so easily. Time for my nap!

the 1918 TAPS (Yes, I have a copy, no, I was not in attendance at that time) we called ourselves Clemson Agricultural College. We had all of 114 Seniors in the Senior Class. (The fact that there was a World War going on at the time may have had some influence on class size.)

Thomas Green Clemson, its founder.

Also... “Clemson University (/?kl?ms?n/[5]) is a public, land-grant research university in Clemson, South Carolina. Founded in 1889, Clemson is the second-largest university in student population in South Carolina. For the fall 2017 semester, the university enrolled a total of 19,402 undergraduate students and 4,985 graduate students,[3] and the student/faculty ratio was 18:1.[6] Clemson's 1,400-acre campus [7] is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and sits next to Lake Hartwell. The university manages the nearby 17,500-acre Clemson Experimental Forest that is used for research, education, and recreation.”.

No mention of any of that redneck stuff Texas A&M is tied up in.

####, I'll do it myself...

Clemson was founded as Clemson Agricultural College of S.C. in 1889, 13 years after Texas A&M was founded as the The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. It became Clemson University in 1955. Texas A&M was renamed to Texas A&M University in 1963, retaining the "A&M" as a nod to its historical roots.

Clemson was never Clemson A&M. The A&M was colloquial because most schools founded under the Morrill Act, like Clemson, were agricultural and mechanical colleges and had A&M in their names (Oklahoma A&M, now OSU, and LSU A&M come to mind). It did not, and never did, stand for "Army & Military." That would be redundant because the army is a part of the military, and in all other historical instances, and especially at the time of its usage in reference to Clemson, was understood to stand for, "Agricultural & Mechanical."

I don’t know where you got your info but it is wrong! In 1955 Clemson began to admit coeds and was no longer an all male military institute but it WAS NOT a university until 1964. AND my ring says Clemson A& M!

i guess this is probably a troll, unless you really dont kniw any history about a&m educational institutions.

Suffice it to say, South Carolina could only dream about having as fine an institution within its borders. (and no, im not saying Clemson isnt a good school).

Some commenters use italics to indicate sarcasm, while others prefer the traditional ending of /s. Others eschew any indication of sarcasm as a dilution of wit. Before down voting somebody, ask yourself, "Could this be sarcasm?"
