  • Provide a vehicle for interaction among students, alumni, faculty and the community;
  • Support the quality and traditions of Clemson University and create new ones;
  • Help with the Senior Picnic, Welcome Back Festival, Big Thursday, community service projects, etiquette dinners, senior gift projects, the Ring Ceremony and professional development workshops;
  • Promote awareness of the Clemson Alumni Association.

Welcome Back Festival

Each year the Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Council kick off the school year with the Welcome Back festival to bring new and current students together for a night of food, fun and fellowship. The Welcome Back Festival hosts more than 70 vendors from restaurants, businesses and university organizations on College Avenue in downtown Clemson. Streets are lined with food tastings, prizes and merchandise that can be purchased with festival tickets which are sold for $0.50 each to raise money for the Student Alumni Council Endowment Scholarship Fund. This year’s festival raised over $18,000 bringing the total for the last 4 years to more than $56,000 for student scholarships.
