For Senior David Li, the attraction to a booming metropolis in a colder climate ran as a stark contrast to many of his Class of 2016 peers.
“I grew up in the city of Shenzhen with a population of about 15 million. It is a tropical city so when I began the college search process I knew I wanted the benefits that a large city has but I also wanted to go someplace with snow,” replied David.
Austin Kramer is the youngest child of the Kramer family and will be attending Clemson University next year.
Way before everyone else in the junior class started thinking about colleges, Austin was aware that Clemson existed. His brother Alex had Clemson on his list of possible schools. When the Kramer family visited the school, Austin really liked the atmosphere of the large university. He asked himself, “could I see myself here for the next 4 years?” He tentatively answered his own question with a “yes.” When his junior year finally arrived Austin went back to Clemson for a second visit. This time when he asked the question…he answered with an enthusiastic YES!!!
