ExxonMobil Plant Tour

Click the ExxonMobil logo below to read more about ExxonMobil's Oriented Polypropylene Films.

ExxonMobil will be hosting the plant tour at their Oriented Polypropylene Film Plant in LaGrange, GA. The tours will leave Auburn at 10:30 AM, 12:00 PM, and 1:30 PM Central Time.

Found below is a list and schedule of the 3 groups that will be participating in the tour. At the top of the spreadsheet, you will find the scheduled departure time from Auburn's Jule Collins Smith Art Museum (901 South College Street Auburn, AL 36849). If you are meeting at the museum (includes everyone other than Clemson who is driving themselves to the plant) you need to arrive at the art museum at least 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. You may park in the parking lot furthest away from the art museum, located on the North Side of the Museum (on Woodfield Drive off of S. College St.).

We have buses that will pick up students and transport them to the Exxon plant site, approximately a 1 hour drive. The participants of each group will be split into two tour groups upon arrival. These groups will tour separately and then reconvene after the tours have been completed. We should be at the plant for approximately an hour and a half. After the tour has been completed, the students will be bused back to the art museum. Total round-trip time is an expected 3.5 hours.

For the 2 Clemson groups who are meeting at the plant location, we ask that you ARRIVE 15 minutes early to the plant (12:15 ET for Group 1 and 1:45 ET for Group 2) so that any unforeseen confusion has a buffer. The address of the plant is 111 Pegasus Parkway; LaGrange, GA 30240. The directions are as follows: Going south on I-85, you will take exit 13 in GA, turning right onto Hwy 219. Take a left onto Pegasus Parkway, which will be on of the first roads you encounter while on Hwy 219. Stay on Pegasus Pky. until you see the Exxon plant.

**For the tour itself, Exxon asks that you wear closed-toed shoes and long pants if you wish to participate in the tour. Please only bring a notepad and pen if you wish to take notes, backpacks will not be allowed on the floor.
