Student Spotlight: Taylor Fallaw
Our student body is a diverse yet coherent collection of people, each one a unique perspective allowing us a window into another lifestyle, culture, or belief system without experiencing it directly ourselves. The student spotlight is here to do just that: bring us together as a campus and as a collegiate organization to better appreciate and understand each other’s views and what we each enjoy and pursue.
Eighteen-year old Taylor Fallaw, a first semester freshman living in overflow housing, came to our campus from Irmo, South Carolina. He was brought up in a religious family with his artsy and sociable younger brother and his resilient and down-to-earth younger sister. His parents, T’wayne and Karen Fallaw, emphasized mindfulness to all three of them, both spiritually and academically. From this standpoint, Taylor has joined the Clemson family to offer a unique view of what it means to pursue his undergraduate degree in Philosophy of Law, Liberty, and Justice.
Taylor’s upbringing along with his personal decisions and values come to terms with his stance on individual integrity. When asked why he wanted to be a lawyer, Taylor said, “As a lawyer, I feel like I can bring people to justice and get them the sentence they deserve, or help impart a sense of dignity to those I defend in court as well.” His integrity manifests itself through his dedication to what he believes to be the correct use of legal rights and restrictions in accordance with the law. Though this is what Taylor holds to be his passion and purpose as far forward as he can see, he also enjoys various activities outside of academia.
Taylor enjoys pickup games of any sport, but formally enjoys frisbee golf. Running is also a favorite of his, as he ran cross country for many years. When asked what he looked for in sports he responded, “I really just look for something physical, but relaxing. The more laid back the better.” He enjoys hanging out with his friends in his dorm or going into downtown to get a bite to eat. All in all, a healthy balance of activity and downtime keep him going strong and happy. Doing what he feels he must do along with making sure to squeeze in time for what he wants keeps Taylor centered and focused on his goals.
These values and viewpoints make Clemson a strong campus, and by exploring new students and their perspectives often, we can all benefit from a greater knowledge of college culture. This type of understanding will also ultimately lead to a better society.
