So is Clemson a Business School now?

Thanks for the big honking building across from Bowman.

Really hated those ugly old oaks and the hill. The leaves were horrible. They were everywhere.

^ See what you did there..

It was beautiful and I liked to park couple of my small camper vans up there in the late 80’s & 90’s overlooking Bowman Field below so I could check out the scenery plus be close to walking downtown & to stadium.

it wasn't quite as embarrassing when you tripped over them on the way from Lowry or Earle. This will be embarrassing when someone falls down the hill into Hwy 93.

And yes... Clemson is making strides to improve it's business school. My son will be enrolling in the fall semester. I guess they are going to finally renovate Sirrine Hall for other classes. It wouldn't surprise me if they use it for engineering.


It will be used as a temporary stay for other buildings

being renovated. Business programs moving out in May to new building, I think.

That’s nothing compared to the mini city of the bridge program. I swear that went up over night I remember coming down for a game a few years ago and saying “### is all this stuff” and someone said the bridge program and I was thinking “what’s that?”

I think you are referring to Douthit Hills which are across the street room the President’s house.

It was initially for Bridge students but it is my understanding that there were complaints by the upperclassmen regardding Bridge students getting new housing. So it became upperclassmen housing instead.

I believe most of the bridge live in Calhoun Courts.


Ironically, they live in Lightsey BRIDGE Apartments***

Community living is one of the most important experiences for a first-year college student. Bridge to Clemson students live in the Lightsey Bridge and Calhoun Courts communities on the main campus of Clemson University with Clemson Home.

You are correct. Douthit is not for bridge students.

The bridge program is Clemson's embarrassing attempt at shoveling

I kinda dig the new Business School.

Considering "Clemson" seems to spawn now on the other side of 76, the placement seems fairly decent.

Now, if you want to talk a monstrosity, lets talk about that Lee Hall renovation. This is why all Architects need banished to the other side of Mars. I think the architects are the manifestation of the "you had one job" meme. Completely nonfunctional as a building... and this is saying something when the Old Lee Hall room numbering system was non-sequential.


Well, it's a business

Nothing sad about J stone gone.

Great recollections of time there. But that was very sub par.


Johnstone was supposed to have been gone 50+ years ago.

It was never meant to have been anything more than hastily thrown together temporary housing.

I watched them try to demolish it and the combination of the concrete and steel was amazingly stubborn.

Still the sheet metal in between the concrete slabs are what really defined the “Tin Cans”, right?

I agree. That fall foliage was an eyesore.


Well it certainly isn't an agricultural school anymore.***

Way too many.

I would be heartbroken if we turned into just another college town.

Clemson is supposedly improving in all areas and is losing its soul. In 20 years it will be another cookie cutter "higher institute of learning" and mean nothing. If your living is easy when you are young, you will have no bottom when things get harder later in life. I did time in Johnstone with no A/C, one phone on the hall and classes five and one half days a week. If you only thrive where everything is easy, you will wilt when times get hard. And if you think that DC will bail you out, they will only take your freedom in return. Then you can be a good grazdanin.

Well, my Son is a freshman at Clemson and is also a palmetto fellow. However, even with that scholarship I’m paying almost 12k a semester not including books. With that kind of money, there better be AC in the dorms.

That is some comical rhetoric from someone who likely grew up in the most blessed generation in American history. God forbid you paid nearly nothing to live in a dorm with shoddy ac. That SAME dorm your children had to pay 100s of times more for, because you sucked up all the government social funding in your youth, then voted them all away for future generations, so your taxes could be a smidge lower.
