CLEMSON — Clemson University begins its academic year officially on Monday, with convocation ceremonies in Littlejohn Coliseum. Freshmen, transfer and graduate students, along with faculty and staff, are invited to take part in the annual ceremony and hear remarks from a number of distinguished speakers, including President James P. Clements and academic cornerstone partner Joe Erwin.

Convocation will be centered around the theme of T-I-G-E-R-S (tradition, inspiration, gratitude, experience, ring and success). Also scheduled to speak are members of freshman council as well as the undergraduate (Logan Young) and graduate (Miles Maynard) student body presidents.

The university’s clear bag policy will be in effect for Convocation, while parking along the Avenue of Champions will be reserved for VIP personnel and event staff.
