In the years from 1893 to 1956, during all of which Clemson was an all-military college, Clemson students, like students elsewhere, had rich campus experiences, quite aside from their classroom activities. There were the tea dances and the big-band balls, the inter- and intra-mural sports, the YMCA activities, social and honor clubs, church events, and a host of other experiences. None of these, however, was unique to Clemson students, nor to the fact that they were cadets.
The purpose of the Cadet Life Garden in the Heritage Gardens at Clemson is to tell of those experiences and events that were unique to the life of Clemson students as Cadets. The plaques in the Cadet Life Garden illustrate that story, and this little book is the record of the plaques themselves.
