Clemson is a college town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It best known as the home of Clemson University. Founded in 1889 Clemson University is now the home of approximately 17,000 students, the Clemson Tigers football team, and the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism.

We recommend flying into Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP). You will be responsible for your transportation from the airport to the campus (about a 45-minute drive), however, we have found a shuttle service which will help you group your trips to help reduce the per person cost. If you are flying to GSP and would like to take this shuttle service, please fill out this form no later Midnight on Sunday July 21, 2013. Once I know everyone that is planning to take the shuttle they will give you your pickup time and also let you know how much you will need to pay for the trips.
