ClemsonGC December grads fly the coop

Onward and upward…. Another class of ClemsonGC grads walks across the stage.

Graphic Communications attracts a wide variety of students at Clemson University. Sometimes students in the department have a real interest in mechanical engineering and those students love working on the different printing presses. Other students have a strong sense for visual design and take the opportunity to build an impressive visual resume of their class projects. Others lean towards entrepreneurship and business interests with an eye towards sales, management, or ownership some day. Still others focus on highly technical aspects of the industry such as color management or packaging solutions. Recently, we’ve even had students express an interest in web design and development with an eye towards web-to-print and online marketing materials.

As a faculty, we hope to encourage opportunities to explore these areas of interest within the highly diverse umbrella of printing, packaging, and allied industries. Students have the opportunity to explore many minors offered on campus as well as choose from a wide array of Special Problems courses ranging in topic from Printed Electronics to Sales to Advanced Web Coding to Conceptual Packaging to Entrepreneurship. These courses change over time and topics are driven on both student and faculty interest. Students also spend at least two semesters in the industry as interns. The internship program opens up a host of real-world opportunities. With over 50 companies hiring each semester, students are strongly encouraged to take on internships that give them the chance to explore different aspects of the industry.

Class of 2014 is full of amazing grads heading out into the industry. Meet two of our December grads- Alex Horne and Anne Lander:..
