“There’s a strong sense of belonging in the chemistry department. We’re a tight-knit group. The faculty knows you by name and they truly want their students to do well. We’re not just a number to them. They genuinely care and want us to be successful.”
— Allie Lindler
Undergraduate student in chemistry

Our common bonds

As Tigers and friends of the College of Science, we share common bonds.
One of the strongest bonds is that shared between students and faculty members. Our faculty serve as teachers, mentors and coaches. They provide an honest, trusted voice throughout a student’s education experience at Clemson. Often, students can see something of their future in a professor as they take in each word and complete each task.
That bond is part of the quintessential education experience at Clemson, and we celebrate it.
Together, we have an opportunity to complete the College of Science General Scholarship Endowment. As the endowment matures, your gift and those of many others will provide scholarships for students embarking on their Clemson undergraduate journey. This endowment will be yet another common and unbreakable bond we share at Clemson.
This year’s Give Day is April 20, but you may make a gift now by clicking the Give to the College of Science button below.
