I knew it was going to start getting cold, considering it’s November and the nights had steadily been getting chillier. But walking outside on Monday, November 11, without looking at the weather beforehand was not what I expected. After all, we are in South Carolina, so I assumed it would be…

It’s finally November. Halloween is over, and every store is already blasting Christmas music and posting their Black Friday deals. Little kids are making lists to Santa and college students are preparing for the endless questions from distant relatives during family reunions. In the crazine…

Students at Clemson witness much hand-wringing when it comes to sexual victimization. The impression is given that Clemson practices zero tolerance, but it doesn’t. What should true zero tolerance look like? Let’s examine the general and then look at a recent, recorded, specific, alleged occ…

An important part of college- and life in general- is living in a nice place. Somewhere that you feel safe in, somewhere that respects and listens to your concerns and actually puts their residents first. Somewhere like the exact opposite of Epoch.

The popular reaction around campus when it comes to fall break is definitely surrounded by excitement. However, not many people take into consideration how short the actual break is, how they might have exams the day before and the day they come back from break and how this all could potenti…

For many, life at Clemson is one long adventure, embodying the Clemson spirit of which we are all so proud. For many others, however, it is not so much a never-ending experience of joy as a succession of nightmarish pressures. What can be done?

Clemson students provide $400 million of the $800 million annual operating expenditure of Clemson University. As a result, they have an extensive wish-list of quite reasonable spending demands. The number of students is growing every year, and yet, there is still not one student representati…

It’s that time of year again. Underclassmen are ready to move off campus and are apartment searching, while those already in apartments have to make the decision to either stay where they are or find somewhere new. I’m sure most students would, at first, automatically plan to stay in their c…

There are currently active campaigns in both the U.S. and the U.K. to “decolonize” universities. The apparent intention is to remove all paraphernalia associated with any sort of colonial or racially-oppressive past, thereby creating a more supportive environment for racial inclusion. Howeve…

The weather has been a wild roller-coaster since September started. Brief teases of cool fall air turn into scorching heat in what feels like a few seconds. This would be less of an issue if all the buildings in Clemson didn’t feel the need to have different temperatures 24/7.

Raise your hand if you think CU 1000 is completely useless. Be honest. C’mon, isn’t CU 1000 just a course about stuff we can find online, a course which gives us no credits, and takes up hours and hours of good social time? If your hand is up, you’re wrong, and here’s why.

If you’re anything like me, life after college is not something you think about (or if you do, it’s with a butt-ton of anxiety and “what am I doing with my life” revolving in your head). While it is absolutely one hundred percent okay to not have a detailed plan, it is a good idea to put you…

It’s not a stretch to say that college students love their phones. Whether it’s for texting, taking pictures, playing games, or many other things, most millennials and teenagers have constant use for their phones, the majority of which have no judgement. However, some activities don’t escape…

I think we all have at least a basic understanding of “The Bachelor” in that it’s a show in which people are expected to meet each other, fall in love, and get engaged all in the span of a few short months. Seems crazy right? But these people are adults (in the sense that they’ve graduated c…

Throughout the first day of classes and even now as everyone is getting settled into their new places here at Clemson, the nervousness flying through the air can be felt from miles away. Walking into your very first class on your first day can make you feel like you are a minnow in an ocean …

It’s the first month of college, or maybe it's just the first month after a summer so long that all the memories of college have faded into long, somnolent days of sun, sand and sea. Either way, you’re overwhelmed with the freshness of it all: new faces, old friends, the smell of paint, the …

Alongside a new school year comes new construction to Clemson's campus. Both major and minor changes took place throughout the summer as most students found solitude in their parents’ house hours away, or at a new job outside of Clemson. While most of this construction both began and conclud…

I’m a bit of an oddity at Clemson. I’m 62, a British-speaking American and a freshman. I’ve been bullied all my life. I’ve become so used to it, I forget what it must be like for my fellow students, maybe experiencing it for the first time.

The Tiger had a little fun recently testing for folks’ likes and dislikes with kinky sex. This is a good moment to wonder: is media sensationalism of BDSM harmless good fun or a trigger for abuse?

April has finally arrived and things have begun to heat up here at Clemson University. The sun is shining, the seniors are sliding, and students lay out all over campus to soak up the rays.  When the weather gets warmer, plenty of opportunities pop up for students to enjoy themselves, and th…

 I believe I am the second-oldest freshman within the Clemson family. I am a 62-year old, disabled, dual British-American, disadvantaged, low-income senior citizen, and yet, I made it into the Clemson family. After a long and arduous wander through my very own tunnel of oppression.

Spring Break is just around the corner, and, unfortunately, so is registration. Registration can be a stressful time. Hours are spent meticulously planning out the perfect schedules, only for the system to completely reject them, resulting in all 8 a.m.’s, 5 p.m.’s and professors notorious f…
