Clemson Libraries

To the Class of 2020


Dear Clemson Graduates,

Congratulations on a momentous occasion – the completion of a degree from Clemson University! The last few months have been challenging, as the spread of COVID-19 moved classes online, forcing you to miss time with your friends and to forego many Clemson traditions and events. Nonetheless, you persevered! You now have a degree from one of the finest universities in the nation and are well prepared to enter the workplace and do great things in – and for – the world.

I hope you will not forget the Libraries as you begin your journeys.  We’ll miss seeing you at Starbucks getting coffee, cramming for exams in the learning commons, or chatting as you stroll across the Library Bridge. Take these amazing memories with you and stop by again when we reopen. We’ll save a chair and table for you.

Keep in touch!  Be productive and thankful, safe and well.  Go Tigers!

Christopher Cox, Dean
Clemson University
