Choice Hotels near Clemson University offer budget-friendly options. When Thomas Green Clemson died in 1888, he left most of his estate to be used to establish a college that would teach scientific agriculture and the mechanical arts to South Carolinians. In his will, Clemson explicitly stated that he wanted the school to be modeled after what is now Mississippi State University. In November 1889, South Carolina Governor John Peter Richardson III signed the bill, thus establishing the Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina. As a result, federal funds for agricultural education from the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act and the Hatch Act of 1887 were transferred from South Carolina College to Clemson. Clemson Agricultural College opened in 1893 with an enrollment of 446. The college began as an all-white male military school and remained that way until 1955, when it changed to "civilian" status for students and became a coeducational institution. In 1963, the school admitted its first African-American student, future Charlotte, North Carolina mayor Harvey Gantt. In 1964, the state legislature formally recognized the school's expanded academic offerings and research pursuits, and the school was renamed Clemson University. Hotels nearby allow you to unwind after touring the campus.
