  Abstract: We present the student-led creation and management of Francis Marion University's new Patriot Cluster. Supercomputers have become essential tools for many computational scientists. Undergraduate access to such machines can, therefore, boost the competency of computational physics students who have opportunities to interact with them. For this reason, the Patriot Cluster's creation and resources are being used as tools for undergraduate education and research. This project is supported by the NSF EPSCoR RII Track 1 cooperative agreement awarded to the University of South Carolina.
