Thursday Events

The Strategies for Institutional-wide Competency Development Symposium at the Madren Conference Center continues today. Clemson’s Center for Career and Professional Development is co-hosting the event. Faculty and administrators from more than 40 schools across the country will be there to focus on incorporating competencies that are needed in the workplace into the classroom. Representatives from Michelin, General Electric, Sherwin Williams and Itron Inc. will also join the event to support why competency development is critical to student success. For information, contact Neil Burton (, 864-656-4337) or Tara Romanella (, 310-869-5530).

Students around campus for the summer are invited to the Campus Activities and Events Summer Kick-Off from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Hendrix Student Center ballrooms. They will be making their own lip balms, tie-dying rally towels, decorating Frisbees. For information, contact Laura Fischman (, 864-656-0539).

Volunteers will place 491 flags on Clemson University’s Scroll of Honor at 6 p.m. in preparation for Memorial Day observances. Participation is usually very high so all of the flags are placed within about 10 minutes. The Scroll of Honor memorializes those Clemson alumni who “lied and died, that we may live and serve,” Col. Ben Skardon said during the Scroll of Honor dedication ceremony in 2010. For information, contact Trent Allen (
