Mason Foley came to Clemson from Nashville, Tennessee, but traces his love of the school to his formative years when he grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. He joined Clemson Undergraduate Student Government (CUSG) early in his college career, serving on the organizations committee. He campaigned for the student body president position in the spring under a platform focusing on three factors central to the Clemson Experience — academics, community and school spirit.

Foley is currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree in management and has spent time as a member of the Clemson University Guide Association, providing campus tours for visitors and guests.

In this week’s podcast, Foley discusses growing up in nearby Charlotte, interest in student government, the campaign trail and what it means to be Clemson University’s student body president.
