Student Affairs Talk: Pam Davis
Editor’s note: This is the latest installment of the “Student Affairs Talk” podcast for 2019-20. In it, Communications Director for Student Affairs Philip Sikes visits with various leaders from the staff and student communities. This week’s featured guest is Pam Davis, director of Campus Activities & Events.
Pam Davis submitted just one college application, to Clemson University. She cites her experience as a Tiger for shaping her career in Student Affairs, including time spent as an Orientation ambassador and as a graduate assistant with Fraternity and Sorority Life. After earning an undergraduate and graduate degree from Clemson, she assumed her first full-time role with Campus Life in the early 2000s when it operated exclusively out of the Edgar A. Brown University Union.
She returned in a full-time capacity for a second tenure in 2016, which led to her current role. Davis is charged with leading a team responsible for coordinating all logistics for reservable spaces on Clemson’s main campus.
In the podcast, she describes the memories she still holds fondly from her student experience as Clemson. She also discusses the many different iterations Campus Life has gone through during her time as a staff member. Finally, she discussed her role with the University’s commencement ceremonies and how gratifying it is to see students achieve the ultimate goal of earning a Clemson degree.
