Clemson University’s Blue Key Honor Society and TigerLive Entertainment will come together to produce Tigerama — the school’s annual student-run pep rally — in Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21. The event coincides with Homecoming Weekend, presented by Founders Federal Credit Union.
Tigerama Director Maggie Crowe, a nursing major from Ocala, Florida, has announced the event will include a headline performance from rap artist B.o.B. Tickets are available for purchase on the Tigerama website and a clear bag policy will be in effect inside the stadium.
“We hope students, alumni and fans attend for tradition and transformation,” said Crowe, who served as assistant director for Tigerama in 2021. “We have a big artist coming to perform, but we also have a pre-show featuring Carly Miller, a country music student singer. We’re bringing back fraternity skits and are super amped up about it. It will be so good for students to laugh with their friends, and our goal is that their true heart will show through as we facilitate this moment.”
The theme of this year’s event is “Timeless Tigertown.” In addition to the headline act, the event will include performances by multicultural groups and spirit squads, the crowning of Miss Homecoming and announcement of the Central Spirit float build winners. President Jim Clements and members of the Tigers football team are also expected to be on hand.
Crowe said the Tigerama planning committee includes anywhere from 20 to 30 students, each with responsibilities over various areas — production, merchandising, marketing, traffic, security, fireworks and beyond. She is excited for arguably the most anticipated Tigerama since 2019.
“At Clemson, tradition means more than it does at other places,” she said. “I also serve as president of the tour guide association, and I always end all of my tours by telling visitors you can take a student out of Clemson, but you can never take Clemson out of a student. That’s what this event has taught me.
“I’ll wear my Clemson ring forever. I’ll hold onto the words of the alma mater forever. Yes, this event lasts about two hours — but Clemson lasts forever. And that’s what ‘Timeless Tigertown’ means to me.”
