Centennial Bur Oak

Estimated to be over 100 years old, the oak is said to be one of the largest trees on Clemson’s campus and is the largest bur oak in South Carolina. The tree has been an icon for students, faculty, staff and alumni for generations and serves as a campus landmark. It is a favorite meeting place, a reminder of the school’s history, and the premier spot for tailgaters.
