President Clements talks about Clemson being named a top 20 national public university

– I have great news to share
with the Clemson family. In the latest US News
and World Report guide to America’s best colleges for 2015, the university now ranks number 20 among the nation’s top
public universities, highlighting our overall academic quality and outstanding student success. This is our highest ranking ever and the seventh consecutive year that we have been in the top 25. To be named among the nation’s
top public universities is a tribute to the hard work
and dedication of many people. I personally congratulate
President Emeritus Jim Barker who challenged all of
us to reach this goal and the entire Clemson family, our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends for earning this
well-deserved recognition.
