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.

With what promises to be the most competitive Democratic Presidential Primary in decades already getting quite steamy, the buzzword of the moment is ‘socialism.’ But I’m not entirely sure too many folks actually know what that entails.

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…

Clemson consistently ranks highly in most categories such as academics, sports, safety and campus life. However, there’s one category where we are often lacking: dining. It is well known across campus that our dining hall options are not very good. In fact, my parents were a little surprised…

The busy, bustling lifestyle of an adult in the 21st century gives us the ability to forget about our impact on the environment. We often think, “Well, it’s just one plastic water bottle and I don’t have time to find and fill my reusable bottle before work. I’ll just grab this mass-produced …

No, no, no, no. Bear with me. I wouldn’t dream of dumping a boring article on you. But, I’m sitting here. Mind meandering. And I thought I’d share. Here’s the thing. We’re at a university which has this hodge-podge of ‘nudge’ social concern. Mixed up somewhat counterintuitively with an overa…

As a Clemson student, you are bombarded daily with posters, flyers and candy with sayings on them, all trying to promote an event or gain a vote. If you’ve been in any bathroom or stairwell during the past month on Clemson’s campus, you’ve probably seen a poster for Fight the New Drug. What …

Anxiety has been one of the most positive forces in my life. I know it sounds strange, but it’s true. Despite the title, I am in no way fearless, but I have learned how to fear less. I have had some form of anxiety for my entire life and was officially diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder…

I’ve gone to Clemson for the past three years, and within that time I’ve heard all about how students should vote in Clemson Undergraduate Student Government (CUSG) elections. I, along with countless other students, have heard things like “It’s really important to vote in your student electi…

I spent the last twelve years cooking for a hot bar buffet in a grocery co-op. Before that, I was a lawyer. I left the corporate fast track to focus on my creative interests (writing a book, composing pop songs). If anyone asked me what I did, I said, “I’m a cook.” Why? Because I’m proud of …

The Douthit Hills complex is the most modern building that Clemson has to offer, with accommodations and amenities around every nook and cranny. The complex offers residential apartments, a new campus bookstore, restaurants, a dining hall and a fully-fledged workout facility. The complex cos…

Hands up. Who thought CU 1000 was really useful? Be honest. C’mon, I’m pretty sure that most of us took the view that a course which was basically all about Clemson, Title IX and Library Sources, moreover, a course which gave us no credits, and took up hours and hours of good social time, wa…

From ages 16 to 18, we’re often told that we need to have a plan for how we’re going to be successful after college: by choosing a major. We are conditioned to think that if we have not chosen a major by the time we’re seniors, we won’t be successful in college. To some extent this is true. …

Holy AxleGrease. Does anyone actually know the cost of wheel alignment these days? I don’t live on campus. I room with friends in Seneca. I don’t do claustrophobia well. And those dorm rooms? My washing machine is bigger.

Of the many on campus services offered by Clemson university, Redfern Health Services stand out as laughably one of the worst. The quality of service that students experience at the facility is often less-than-preferable and the attitude of the staff there varies per visit. Redfern maintains…

"Get comfortable with being uncomfortable” is a mantra I try to live by and I would recommend that everyone do the same. All too often we find ourselves staying in situations that we have always been in because of the comfort that comes from knowing everything about that situation. In my cas…

Picture this: you wake up and go to your class at nine in the morning. It’s a beautiful April morning, but you start to notice as you pass people on campus that you’re getting quite a few dirty looks. You go to the bathroom and two girls go in after you. You can feel the tension in the air, …

Before my niece could talk, she could clear notifications while looking through pictures on her mother’s phone. “Do you want to see a picture of yourself?” became a welcome distraction for when she wasn’t content. And a few months later, she was asking for Snapchat “faces,” able to click the…

Why are you lying awake at night? Insomnia?... Caffeine? Or is it a subconscious feeling of worry, nervousness and unease? Anxiety is an epidemic that plagues millennials because of the constant need to be “in the know,” which stems from excessive social media use and ultimately leads to soc…

It often seems like there is more wrong with this world and this campus than there are right. However, there are many things to be appreciative of, and one of the most overlooked aspects about Clemson is the staff. Specifically those that clean our campus, cook us food and make sure that our…

The Clemson Wrestling program was removed as a varsity sport following the 1994-95 season. While the program had success, cancelling it meant more than losing NCAA championships that our wrestlers brought home. We lost a form of entertainment for our students during the winter. Wrestling mat…

On Oct. 27, 11 people were killed in a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. During a seemingly normal Saturday morning service, a man started shooting while shouting anti-semitic epithets. Being a Jew myself, I cannot even fathom the fear that the people inside the Tree of Life synagog…
