ClemsonLIFE: Last week we had our FIRST fraternity bid day at ClemsonLIFE. Our men are so excited to join the brotherhood of @clemsonbyx or @clemsonpikapp we hope more universities will follow in their footsteps and allow students in programs like ours to join in on Greek life!
About this program
The ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University is designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus.
A college experience is a part of growing up.
- Young adults go through a similar development process that requires certain activities, experience and support.
- Young adults must develop skills and an understanding about themselves and the world around them in order to fully participate in society and to become successful, contributing adults.
- Higher education is a vehicle for self-empowerment and access to social networks, employment, and independence.
- Group membership provides essential motivation and support for learning and participation in community life.
ClemsonLIFE offers a collegiate experience that prepares young men and women with intellectual disabilities for competitive employment and independent living through a combination of academic coursework and career exploration.
