Second Century Society Luncheon Club

Second Century Society (Columbia, SC) – In 1989, a dedicated group of Clemson alumni and friends in the Columbia area formed an organization called The Second Century Society.  Their goal was to provide a forum for Clemson to share its message with alumni and friends of Clemson as the United States entered its second century.

The Second Century Society continues today in the same manner. It is a networking opportunity as well as an opportunity to learn what is going on in the academic and research fields at our school and what you can do to help Clemson accomplish its mission. Membership is open to all that share an interest in Clemson.

Second Century Society meets at The Hall at Senate’s End in downtown Columbia (316 Senate Street) and run from 12-1pm.

Single lunches or guest lunches can be purchased for $25. Please consider adding a $5+ gift to Clemson for the Second Century Society Annual Scholarship that supports students in our local area. Our goal each year is to give back $2,000 for scholarship.

Young Alumni Discount (if you’ve graduated in the last 10 years): Young Alumni can receive a $10 discount on a single lunch at just $15. No discount code needed, just select YA Lunch at checkout and enter graduation year.
