Clemson awards more than 1,700 degrees Friday; U.S. Sen. Tim Scott addresses graduates

Date: May 11, 2018

Clemson University conferred more than 1,700 degrees during two commencement ceremonies on Friday. U.S. Sen. and New York Times best-selling author Tim Scott gave a speech at both ceremonies and offered three pieces of advice for a full and significant life:

“If I was sitting in your chairs, what advice would I want?” said Scott (R-S.C.). “First, failure is not final if you don’t refuse to quit. The second, stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. And number three, hold on tightly to the dreams that inspire you.”
