The WAVS LLC is designed especially for first-year women majoring in Animal and Veterinary Science (AVS). WAVS offers unique experiences within the AVS department that are not offered to other students in the major. The first year is a time of great adjustments from high school to college life. WAVS helps students successfully make that transition. Freshman women live and study with other women in their major, who share the same coursework, test schedules, study groups and club activities. WAVS is an opportunity to make lifelong friendships with other women who share similar interests, dreams and ambitions.
What To Expect
Did You Know?
AVS staff and faculty support WAVS and often continue to mentor the student through the remainder of their Clemson academic career and even assist with labs for upper-level animal science courses — truly linking both in-class and out of class experiences during a student’s time at Clemson. WAVS students also historically have higher GPA’s than freshmen AVS students not in WAVS.
