We're dropping my oldest off at college this weekend and it is making me nostalgic. I thought I'd share one of the best memories...receiving my grand-dad's 1933 Clemson diploma as a graduation gift.

We ended up getting my CU diploma framed to match.

Check out the signatures.


That's really awesome, thanks for sharing!***

That was to cover up the blood on the diploma.


My Granddaddy was class of '33 also.

My grandmother gave me my grandfathers 1924 Clemson ring...

He wore it everyday and after he passed away, all of his children wanted it and my grandmother told them she couldn't find it.

I was his only grandchild who attended Clemson and at dinner after my graduation, my grandmother hands me a small box and in it was my grandfathers Clemson class ring.

I was absolutely speechless. She then said to me, "He would want a Clemson man to have this."

I cried like a baby and I am about to cry now just thinking about it again.

That ring was and will always be the greatest gift I have ever or will ever receive.

I wore it instead of my own for several years until it really started to show its age.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


That's amazing. Do you have a picture you could share of it?

I don't think I've ever seen a Clemson ring that old.

I have it locked away for safe keeping.

In fact, I can't remember the last time I had it out.

I stopped wearing it right after my oldest daughter wa born (1994), so it has probably been Probably 22 or 23 years.
