The orange and purple began when Walter Merritt Riggs formed Clemson’s first football team in 1896. He used ideas from his old schools colors and the teams mascot to get the colors

Mascot: The teams mascot is a Tiger and a cub. Although the football team was known as the Tigers and often used “Eat ‘Em Up, Tigers” as a slogan, it wasn’t until 1954 that a Clemson student donned the mascot suit. In 1993, the Tiger was joined by the Tiger Cub. Student Life There are more than 400 student- run organizations on campus ranging from community service and professional to sports.

Average age of full-time 18 20 Fraternity and Sorority Life at Clemson University is made up of three governing councils: the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Panhellenic Council

Mission of the Fraternity and Sorority Community:
We, the fraternity men and sorority women, chosen to lead the three councils commit to the Values of:
-Accountability The Campus Traditions: -Alma Mater Salute/Rat Caps: Freshmen wore rat caps during Clemson’s military days and for a short while afterward. The hats were waved in the air during every football game until the end of the Homecoming game
-Banging on the Drum: As part of the traditional celebration before the Clemson-Carolina rivalry game, Army ROTC students bang a drum at Death Valley for 24 hours a day beginning the Thursday before the big game on Saturday.
-Clemson Ring :The “C” surrounding a palmetto tree on a black background is one of the most recognizable of all college rings today. Copyrighted so only Clemson alumni and students with more than 90 hours can have the honor of wearing it, the ring contains art elements representing the University’s land-grant and military heritages as well as the motto: “Who shall separate us now?”
-Running Down “The Hill” :Dubbed “the most exciting 25 seconds in college football,” running down “The Hill” originally started out of practicality. Before the west stands were built, the football team dressed at Fike Field House and ran from there to the gate and down the hill onto the field. Today, fans hear, “YOUR CLEMSON TIGERS,” a cannon fires, the Tiger Band plays “Tiger Rag,” and thousands of orange-clad fans cheer the moment the Tiger football team runs down the grassy hill and onto the field.
- Howard’s Rock :Howard’s Rock, named for legendary Coach Frank Howard, was brought to Clemson from Death Valley, Calif., by 1919. The rock is found on the top of "the hill" before each home game the football players run down the hill and rub the rock. SAT/ACT Scores ACT: 30
