Clemson, SC

Communicating Capitalism:

This program will take place at Clemson University in Clemson, SC.

We recommend driving to Clemson or flying into Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) which is about 45-minutes away.

We will do our best to pick everyone up (including making a run later in the evening to pick up the inevitable stragglers), but we are not guaranteeing transport from the airport to Clemson. Taxi service is available for about a $60 - $100 per trip, as well as other shuttle services to and from the airport. If you have any questions about travel to and from the airport, please contact Eric Allison,

Amtrak also offers rail service to the nearby city of Clemson—but the timetable is not very convenient.

Please choose a flight that arrives before 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 21 and do not plan to leave the seminar earlier than 1:00 p.m (which means a flight that departs no earlier than 3pm). on Sunday, May 24.

You will be staying in traditional dorm rooms with a roommate of your same gender and will share a bathroom with the room adjacent to you, also of your same gender.  Linen (bedsheets, pillowcases and towels) will be provided with your room, but you should bring a light blanket if you are susceptible to cold.

Information about the rooms can be found at:
