2022 Week of Gratitude begins November 14


For many individuals, November invokes reflection on the people, places and things that have touched and enriched their lives. They concentrate on the feeling of thankfulness and look for ways to express gratitude. Today, Clemson University leads into Thanksgiving, the day of thanks, with the Week of Gratitude, a time students learn about private gifts across campus and have opportunities to express their appreciation to the many donors who impact the Clemson Experience and better their lives.

The Clemson University 2022 Week of Gratitude goes from Nov. 14-18 with events scheduled Monday through Thursday.

• Monday, Nov. 14 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Library Bridge
SPEAKING OF PHILANTHROPY, private donations to Clemson Libraries enhance student educational experiences through newly renovated study rooms, the Adobe Studio and Makerspace, and resources and collections to help with research and other projects.
• Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at McAlister Hall
At Clemson, donors have created over 2000 endowments, totaling almost $1 billion. Revenue from private endowments CONNECT students to scholarships, top-notch faculty, and student experiences beyond the traditional classroom.
• Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business in the Richardson Atrium
The Richardson Atrium recognizes a generous gift by Mark and Kathryn Richardson to ensure that students from all majors have places to meet, study and equal educational opportunities.
• Thursday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Carillon Gardens
Write a Thank You note and receive a free t-shirt and coffee (while supplies last).

Each day, a different building or area on campus — that was funded by private gifts — will be highlighted, ending with a Thank-a-Thon that allows students to thank donors for these gifts.

Our Week of Gratitude focuses on helping students better understand philanthropy and how gifts from private donors impact their Clemson experiences. Once students make the connection that there are real people behind those dollars, whether they go to support scholarships, facilities or programs, they are excited to express their gratitude. What better time of year to share a simple ‘thank you’?”
