After nearly 60 years of welcoming alumni back to Tigertown and celebrating the Clemson spirit, Tigerama returns in 2015. On Friday night, join students, alumni and community members alike to enjoy a Clemson family reunion like never before. The evening will kick off with a special performance by two of Clemson’s well-known singing groups at 6 p.m.
For the first time, Tigerama takes place at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, with the program beginning at 7 p.m. Former Miss South Carolina Lanie Hudson and new head baseball coach Monte Lee will serve as the masters of ceremony for the evening.
The theme for this year’s Homecoming festivities is, “Homecoming 101: A Lesson on Legacy,” emphasizing the foundational aspects of Clemson’s history and encouraging all who attend to consider how they might leave their own legacy.
The program features four core pillars that make up Clemson – academics, military, athletics and alumni – along with the top-10 Miss Homecoming finalists and performances from Tiger Band, Rally Cats, the football team, Tigeroar and other student organizations.
The night concludes with a special appearance by country music artist Josh Turner and an impressive fireworks show designed specifically for Tigerama.
Tickets for Tigerama can be purchased online through Ticketmaster, with the link found at Tigerama.org. Tickets for students and children are $12 and adults are $17, with the prices going up to $15 and $20, respectively, at the door. Be sure to get your tickets before they sell out!
HISTORY OF TIGERAMA
On Nov. 8, 1957, Joe Sherman and Blue Key Honor Society oversaw the inaugural performance of Tigerama at Clemson University, making it the second-largest, completely student-run show in the nation.
Tigerama has become a hallmark event of the Homecoming weekend in Tigertown, highlighting for an audience of thousands the best of what Clemson University has to offer.
Since 1957, Tigerama has been more than just a celebration of Clemson’s Homecoming, it is a unique experience for Tiger fans of all ages. Tigerama is not only a catalyst for school spirit, it is also a source of essential scholarship support.
Since its founding in 1957, the proceeds from Tigerama have provided the top student from each academic major a Tigerama Scholarship, which recognizes excellence in the classroom and leadership in the community.
Thank you for assisting in our efforts to foster community support and to give back to the campus and student body.

From the depths of Death Valley to the ends of the world, Clemson Tigers are leaving their mark. For our 101st Homecoming celebration, we will highlight Clemson University’s academic prowess, honor our distinguished military history, celebrate our athletics and pay tribute to our alumni all across the world.
