Clemson draws a lot of students who actively participate in or love to watch sports. Those freshmen that arrive without an understanding of the Clemson athletic tradition find themselves in awe at the first home football game while 80,000 fans cheer on the Tigers as they rush down the Hill, a grassy area behind the home goalposts. Weekends at Clemson in the fall revolve around football, and students here wouldn't have it any other way.
Sports are a way of life at Clemson. It is perhaps one of the best schools for you to watch or play any sport imaginable, from Division I to intramural. Club and intramural sports give you the opportunity to try something you wouldn't believe a university would even sponsor-just don't tell your parents you're training with the Dixie Skydivers.
