Nearly 3,000 Clemson University students received degrees Friday in commencement ceremonies in Littlejohn Coliseum.
Clemson University officials will award degrees to approximately 3,000 students in three commencement ceremonies in Littlejohn Coliseum Friday, May 8.
Clemson University will move its graduation ceremonies to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville beginning with the Aug. 7 ceremony later this year and continuing through the August 2016 graduation. Major renovation to Littlejohn Coliseum, the traditional location for the event, makes the move necessary.
Clemson University President James P. Clements urged new graduates, faculty, staff and alumni to make a difference in their lives, and the lives of others, at Friday's summer commencement exercises.
More than 1,100 students are expected to receive degrees when Clemson University hosts its fall 2013 graduation ceremonies next Thursday, Dec. 19, at Littlejohn Coliseum.
