After months of exams, endless nights in the library and the same $3 dinner every night, winter break arrives just in the nick of time for most Clemson students. While the fall semester can be a glorious one filled with football games and fun nights out, both the irritating lack of sleep and…

As a former intern in the Sexual Exploitation and Crimes Against Children Unit in a Metro Atlanta DA’s office (that specializes in prosecuting cases of physical and sexual assault), I unfortunately know some of the ugly truths about interpersonal violence. I know that over 90% of victims of …

It is definitely not a stretch to say that over the past few weeks all anyone seems to be talking about is Disney Plus (Disney+). With this service, not only do you have access to all of the Disney channel shows and movies as well as all of the Disney movies out of the vault, but you also ha…

All those who volunteer to be involved in Clemson University Student Government as the voice of the student body give their time freely and extensively to help their fellow students. Yet, that shouldn’t mean they aren’t open to ideas as to how they might more effectively serve as that voice.

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…

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…

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.

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 …
