After graduating high school, Rena Haley Jackson attended Clemson University, which is located in upstate South Carolina. Here, Rena seemed to follow in her parents’ footsteps, as both Nikki Haley and Michael Haley attended Clemson University too. According to People, Michael reportedly transferred to Clemson after he and Nikki started dating so he could be with her more often. Nikki herself graduated from the university with an accounting degree in 1994. Later, in 2021, Nikki served her alma mater by working with the Clemson Board of Trustees, as reported by Clemson News.
Rena, on the other hand, studied nursing and psychology. She graduated from Clemson University in 2021 after finishing her bachelor’s degree in nursing. Like her parents, Rena also found love while attending Clemson, as it was here that she met Joshua Jackson. Aside from studying nursing, Rena was also involved in the university outside of classes. For example, in 2019, during her junior year, Rena ran for student body president along with her friend, Collin Huskey, who ran for president. When asked about Rena’s famous politician mother, Huskey told The Post and Courier, “I think (Rena) has made a name for herself with her hard work.” After graduating from Clemson, Rena soon became a registered nurse after taking the required state exams, according to People. Rena lists herself as a pediatric nurse on her official Instagram profile.
