The University was founded in 1889 as the Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina. It was established by a bequest from Thomas Green Clemson (1807-1888), noted scientist, agriculturalist, and son-in-law of John C. Calhoun, whose Fort Hill plantation formed the core of the college campus.|
The mission of Clemson University is to fulfill the covenant between its founder and the people of South Carolina to establish a "high seminary of learning" through its historical land-grant responsibilities of teaching, research and extended public service.
Clemson University is a selective, public, land-grant university in a college-town setting along a dynamic Southeastern corridor. The University is committed to world-class teaching, research and public service in the context of general education, student development and continuing education. Clemson's desire is to attract a capable, dedicated and diverse student body of approximately 12,000 to 14,000 undergraduate and 4,000 to 5,000 graduate students, with priority to students from South Carolina.
