Students from kindergarten to fifth grade were invited to Jervey Meadows to learn from Clemson student-athletes what it means to be a Tiger at the Be a T.I.G.E.R! Field Day on Saturday, March 10.

The Field Day is one part of a character education initiative in which each letter of T.I.G.E.R. represents a value important to Clemson University and its athletic programs. These values are teamwork, integrity, gratitude, education, and respect. At the Be a T.I.G.E.R! Field Day, a station is set up for each letter, with an activity designed to teach children the importance of that value.

In addition to visiting the five T.I.G.E.R. stations, participants also had the opportunity to have their picture taken wearing official Clemson athletic uniforms, to meet Clemson athletes and get autographs, to learn Clemson cheers from the cheerleaders, to have fun with the Tiger mascot, to get free t-shirts and more.
