The ABC's Of Clemson University

There is something in these hills, and it's pain and lack of breath from walking up all of them.

The ABC's Of Clemson University

I may be biased, but Clemson University is the best place in the world. Between our outstanding academics, incredible game day atmosphere and beautiful campus set on Lake Hartwell, it just can’t be beat. By the end of your first year, you will understand the ABC's of Clemson.

A is for All In.

The Clemson family is ALL IN no matter what the occasion is.

B is for Bowman.

The perfect place for studying, tossing the football or watching all of the dogs run around. Oh, and on occasion we let ESPN’s College Gameday come visit.

C is for Cadence Count.

1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4!

D is for Deshaun Watson.

A Clemson god and every girl’s dream man.

E is for Effort

Here’s to the the endless effort put into papers, projects and presentations. We’ll graduate one day.

F is for Fort Hill Street.

No, you’re not the only one who can’t breathe when you reach the end.

G is for Game Day.

Nothing beats Clemson Football. Or baseball. Or basketball. Basically any Clemson game day is a reason to celebrate.

H is for Hills

No one mentions you need to train for a marathon in order to get to class at orientation.

I is for iRoar.

I don’t know if I should say ‘thank you’ or ‘I hate you.’

Term paper? Going to Fike? Emailing your advisor? Just do it.

The bane of West Campus residents’ existence.

L is for L

This is dedicated to all of the L's taken throughout your four years of college.

If you are lost the answer can probably be found there.

35-31, baby.

Orange is matched best with purple no doubt.

They are literally the worst.

Where you can find puppies or frat rockets 24/7.

R is for Reflection Pond.

Don’t be alarmed if you see people swimming or having boat races here in between classes.

S is for Solid Orange Friday

This is no joke. You look dumb without orange on.

Everybody wants a Triple T’s 21st t-shirt.

U is for The Union.

Home of uneven bricks, swing dancing classes, and the beloved Chick-Fil-A.

V is for View.

Our campus is actually perfect.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
