This past weekend was Fall Break for BGA (Battle Ground Academy), so our family planned a trip back to my college campus to introduce our daughter to the college atmosphere and to take a guided tour of Clemson University. Our daughter is only in the sixth grade in Franklin, TN so we are getting a bit of a jump on college campus visits as most of the 150+ visitors were Juniors or seniors in high school. But it was a great time to relive some of our memories as I graduated in 1993 from Clemson with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and my wife Graduated with her Masters in Elementary Education in 1992. The campus was busy when we arrived on Friday morning, but quickly thinned out in the afternoon as Monday and Tuesday were designated Fall Break for students. Many students were heading home, but others were road-tripping to Maryland to watch the Clemson Tigers take on Maryland to continue our fight in an undefeated season.
The entire trip and 2 hour guided walking tour got me thinking back to community and to being part of something bigger. The tour guide talked about Clemson University not as a place or an institution but as a group, or an organization of people with similar beliefs and goals in mind. So upon my return I wanted to connect with my fellow alumni from Clemson University that are now relocated in the Nashville area. I do stay connected with many of my fellow alumni on Facebook and in person with those living nearby, but I want to provide my services to Clemson Alumni and offer up a pledge to donate $100 to Clemson from every real estate transaction I conduct in the next year, that it is either a referral from an alum or a client that is an alum.
As an educated Tiger, I promise to represent my Alumni clients with the utmost in care and respect and to always remember to wear orange when meeting them for consultations. And I know that they will understand it when I balance our meeting schedule around Clemson Football and Basketball games. So if you are a young Clemson Alum just settling down in the Nashville area or are an established Alum in the Nashville area, I look forward to meeting you and one day helping you with your real estate needs.
And finally, GO TIGERS! We are clawing our way toward an undefeated season.
