The Solid Orange Squad (SOS) is an elite student-athlete community service organization which participates in a wide variety of community service events throughout the upstate of South Carolina. Currently, the SOS boasts of over 100 active members.

Clemson's SOS is unique because it is the first and only Division I University to incorporate a focused character education program called Be a T.I.G.E.R! in all personal appearances, service projects and community work. The program enables student-athletes to teach kids about the values of teamwork, integrity, gratitude, education and respect through four different components and provides a focused approach to service.
