Clemson’s annual Homecoming celebration, Tigerama, takes place this year on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. This event has grown immensely from where it started 67 years ago, when a famous alum, Joe Sherman, brought this idea to Clemson in hopes of creating a uniting event full of spirit at the end of Homecoming week.
Tigerama has grown to feature student groups, entertainment segments, philanthropic efforts, fireworks and a concert every year on the Friday night of Homecoming week.
This year, Tigerama features a unique combination of traditional and transformational components. Just as in previous years, the audience can expect the crowning of the 2023 Miss Homecoming Queen, fireworks, appearances from the Rally Cats, Tiger Band, the football team, student music groups and so much more. The show also includes a concert by world-famous rapper Waka Flocka Flame.
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.
The theme of Tigerama 2023 is “Beyond the Paw.” The theme celebrates Clemson’s rich history and its commitment to pushing boundaries, reaching new heights and creating a positive impact on the world. It is the idea that being a part of Clemson goes beyond the physical campus. It is about carrying the memories, lessons and friendships. It is a commitment to honesty, integrity and respect that extends beyond graduation, as the love we have for Clemson lasts a lifetime.
To experience how the university goes “Beyond the Paw,” join us in celebrating one of the most special traditions that Clemson has to offer during this year’s Homecoming week. Tigerama is an opportunity for students to share in the fun of Homecoming, for alumni to return to the traditions of their alma mater and for Tiger fans of all ages to experience the magnitude of the Clemson Family.
Tigerama 2023 is bound to be one of the best yet, and we cannot wait for you to experience this iconic tradition. Follow us on Instagram (@cutigerama) and purchase tickets at the official Tigerama website, ClemsonTigerama.com.
