  • 1902: First student walk-out takes place when 69 of 74 sophomores depart campus to protest the suspension of a cadet accused of improperly taking chemistry test tubes from storage.
  • 1956: WSPA-TV, channel 7, signs on this date. It was owned by broadcasting pioneer Walter J. Brown and his company, Spartan Radiocasting, along with WSPA radio (AM 950, now WOLI at AM 910; and 98.9 FM). It has always been a CBS affiliate. Spartan Radiocasting bought several other radio and television stations over the years, and was renamed Spartan Communications in 1995. The radio stations were sold off in 1998, but WSPA-TV remained the flagship of the company until it merged with Media General in 2000. Channel 7 was the last locally owned-and-operated station in the market.
  • 2007: The Clemson Little Theatre presents The Spitfire Grill at 3 p.m. Ruff O'Brien performs acoustic music at Pitchers at 7 p.m.
