September marks the beginning of football season! It's probably no secret, if you've been following my blog a while or have read the "About Me" page, that I am a HUGE Clemson Tigers fan. It's my home and my alma mater, and there is nothing better than football. I cannot express in words the experience of tailgating at Clemson and attending a game in Death Valley. If you're within driving distance and have never been, go to a game!! :)
My favorite things this month are Clemson University, my class ring, and Clemson Football! The first picture is of Tillman Hall. It was built in 1891 and is the home of almost all education classes on campus. The second picture is of my Clemson University class ring. Graduates around the world instantly recognize this beautiful piece of Clemson tradition. The final picture is of Death Valley during an evening game. Isn't it beautiful? I love my boys!! :)
Teaching in NC, I am surrounded by UNC, Duke, and NC State fans. On Friday, I gave my students a brief history of Clemson University. They started out making smart alec comments, but by the end, they were pretty impressed. It was neat. One student said, "I'll pull for Clemson this weekend, but that's it!!" :) It warmed my heart.
I thought I would leave you with a couple of the videos I showed them. Enjoy and GO TIGERS!! :)
Before every home game, the band gives a mini-concert on the outdoor amphitheater. It's great for families and free for all!
