As some sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway reopened for the first time after being cleared from Hurricane Florence, there was little to suggest the storm would put a damper on a vibrant fall color season in the southern Appalachians. While above average rainfall over the summer months and warm temperatures continuing well into September could delay the display slightly, Clemson University forest ecologist Don Hagan reported few signs Florence should hinder an abundance of autumn hues.
Clemson University is ranked among the top 25 national public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report for the 11th year in a row. Clemson is No. 24 in the 2019 edition of Best Colleges Rankings released Monday.

Annoyed by that crack on your phone’s screen? You wouldn’t be if the screen could heal itself, like a body heals a cut. That day is coming. Research and development in this area is so popular now that today’s advice to Benjamin Braddock would be two words: self-healing plastics.
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.
Sixteen professors and administrators from Clemson University’s College of Education gathered in the cool morning hours in a parking lot behind Memorial Stadium March 5 where they loaded into two big white vans and hit the road for a two-day field trip into the heart of the Palmetto State.
