All of us together again in one place, celebrating a year of hard work and accomplishment, recognizing all the folks who had a part in making the past year one of  growth and special moments shared together.  New faces, familiar faces, babies born, birthdays celebrated, updated and new spaces, professional and personal achievement. A time to come together to celebrate our perseverance through difficult times.

The new date for the 2020 Employee Recognition Reception  is Thursday, June 4th at the Clemson Outdoor Lab. Mark your calendars. Updated calendar invitations will go out soon!

Reminder from Dean Cox

As we move through the coming weeks, working from home may become more challenging, depending on the situation with the epidemic.  I encourage you to take time for yourselves and seek help as you deal with the stress and strain of a challenging situation.  Deer Oaks is free and available (  with the username/password is all lowercase “clemson”) if you want someone to talk to.

Have you tried the Pomodoro Technique?

Are you having a hard time trying to be productive at home? Can’t seem to focus on one task with constant interruptions besieging you? Check out the Pomodoro Technique.

It’s a great tool for focusing in short blocks of time to knock out tasks. It builds in breaks just when you need them.
