Tigerama is returning on October 14 for its 60th show! Join students, alumni, families and fans to enjoy a Clemson pride-filled night with a fun new twist of being back in Death Valley for the first time since 2002.
The evening kicks off with a pre-event held in the grass area between the west endzone of Memorial Stadium and lot 1 at 5 p.m. There will be kid-friendly games, face-painting, T-shirts and a live band to pump everyone up for the evening’s show.
With the show being in Memorial Stadium, the gates for the event open at 6 p.m., and we kick things off at 7 p.m.
The theme for this year’s festivities is “Coming Home to Clemson,” emphasizing the Clemson family. The show is “coming home” to its original venue, alumni from all over the country are “coming home” to their alma mater, the football players are “coming home” to play in their house the following day for thousands of fans and all Clemson students have found their “home” for four amazing years.
The program features an exciting twist that it has not had in recent years…a skit competition during the show. A judging panel will be in attendance and student organizations will present their skit and compete for the award of “Skit Champions” for the year.
Other groups will be presented at Tigerama as well, including Tiger Band, Rally Cats, the cheerleaders and our football team.
The night concludes with paw-shaped fireworks, the alma mater and an incredible amount of hype for the Homecoming game to follow the next day.
Tickets for Tigerama can be purchased at the Hendrix Student Center information desk or on Cooper Library bridge from 10 a.m., to 2 p.m., every day on the week leading up to the show. Tickets for students and children in advance are $10, and adult tickets are $15. On the day of the show, all tickets are $15. You can log on to Tigerama.org for more information.
HISTORY OF TIGERAMA
On Nov. 8, 1957, Joe Sherman and Blue Key Honor Society oversaw the inaugural performance of Tigerama, 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 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 give back to the campus and student body.
