The plethora of salamanders living in the southern Appalachian Mountains might be in less danger from the effects of global warming than previously believed, according to new research published Wednesday in Science Advances.
Students and faculty hope to unearth remnants that help tell the stories of the men, women and children who lived and worked as slaves during the antebellum era on the Fort Hill property on what now is the Clemson University campus. There will be a drop-in at the archaeological site where they are digging from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, to commemorate Juneteenth, which marks the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved people in the United States.

By juxtaposing contrasting properties of two different nanomaterials, a team of Clemson University physicists has developed an optical diode that enables light to move in one direction. The development overcomes an obstacle in the quest for better optical isolators for high-energy lasers and optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.
A Clemson University scientist is sending his research on the cotton genome into outer space after being selected as a winner in the Cotton Sustainability Challenge. Christopher Saski, associate professor in the plant and environmental sciences department, is the principal investigator on a project that seeks to explore the cotton genome and how it reacts in microgravity and normal gravity.
Traditionally, students start thinking about going to college when they are in high school, but in a state that has been struggling with poorly performing and underfunded school districts for years, it’s vital to get children excited about college from a much younger age. So Clemson University’s new Office for College Preparation and Outreach recently hosted 110 fourth-graders from Greenville’s Legacy Early College Charter School to capture their imaginations and open their minds to the joys of going to college.

George Petersen remembers escaping; his mom, Mabel, scooping him out of bed in the middle of the night when he was 4 years old, secreting him out of a dark house and into the frayed back seat of her pale blue Ford Fairlane and pulling away into a restless Los Angeles night. It was the […]
Automotive researchers, students and manufacturers will work side by side developing and learning advanced manufacturing techniques at the new Clemson Vehicle Assembly Center that was unveiled Thursday in Greenville. Part of the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) and located in the Greenville Technical College Center for Manufacturing Innovation, the real-world research space will provide innovative manufacturing solutions and highly trained engineers and technicians for industry.
Researchers at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a wireless energy source that generates electricity from simple mechanical motion, such as the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand.
The Princeton Review once again has named Clemson University one of the nation’s best institutions for students seeking a superior education with unparalleled career preparation at an affordable price. The educational service company touts Clemson’s faculty-to-student ratio, co-op and internship programs and campus life as key contributors to student success.
