Tobacco. Cigarettes. Cigars. Pipes. Hookah. Chewing tobacco. Snuff. They are all the same thing in the eyes of this proposed tobacco policy. According to a Clemson research, about 12% of students smoke on campus. Does this number surprise you? CUSG has asked that all students, faculty, and staff partaking in the survey give honest, opinionated answers. We believe that the students have the right to choose what happens on their campus. This policy not only affects students and faculty, but visitors, tour groups, and every fan on game days. This proposed policy will take effect in 2015 and we are looking for feedback from YOU. Use the hashtag #CUTobaccoBan on every social media outlet and let us know what you think! We are listening to you as you tell us your feedback and want to know if you think Clemson should be a tobacco free campus.

Scanning the sea of usually orange, we hope to see nothing but purple as we honor those who have come before us and those fighting for us on Military Appreciation Day. The “Purple Out” started as a thought and grew into something much more. The concept behind the “Purple Out” is to represent the great significance that the color purple has to the U.S. Military. Purple is symbolic of the courage and sacrifice possessed by the recipients of the Purple Heart Award. We hope to see a wave of Purple hit Death Valley on November 23, 2013. CU There.
