College is all fun and games until you realize there a thousands of people watching every single move you make. Sometimes it’s a good thing. Sometimes funny and others embarrassing. But 100% of the time, you won’t be the only one who has done it. These are 10 things that will absolutely happen to you at Clemson University!
1. You will freak out when you realize you’re sitting next to a football player in class.
This is the most awkward thing ever. You want a picture, you want to talk football and you want to ask them to formal. Instead? You just ask for a pencil, so you can go tell all your friends about how Deshaun Watson is your new best friend.
2. You will drop your food in Core or Schilletter
When this does happen everyone in the dining hall will see it. Some will laugh, some may cry, however everyone feel your pain, as a starving college student, for having to now wait in line for food again.
3. You will fall down The Hill
Gamedays will never get old. Especially when you’re cheering for the Clemson Tigers. However being national champions has it downside. We gather at the paw after every win in Death Valley.. All thousands of people. So I can promise you’ll very much enjoy eating grass and then rolling down with the crowd of fans.
4. You will give the wrong answer to your professor in class.
You’re probably thinking this isn’t a big deal because it happens at all levels of school. However it’s quite embarrassing when you call the tibia a ‘fibulous’ in front of your entire 300 person biology lecture. Trust me, you’ll still pass the class.
5. You will end up in the back of a pickup truck
Girls’ night out? Late night cookout run? Headed to the baseball game? Well you better hope you didn’t work too hard on your hair, because it will be a tangly mess upon arrival via bed of a pickup truck. It’s a South Carolina thing just go with the flow.
6. People will walk into your dorm while unexplainable things are happening
Please don’t ask why I’m blow drying crayons onto a brick from The Union because I don’t have the answer to your question. That being said, this is how you make friends and memories so never lock your door.
7. Redfern will misdiagnose you, and you might die.
You’ll go in for a sore throat, and they’ll diagnose you with strep. A week or two later it still hurts, so you go back. This time they’ll tell you that it’s mono. Three days later you’ll be in the hospital on the verge of death and hundreds of dollars in debt.
8. You will have a break down in Cooper.
Sometimes it is because you took 19 credit hours that semester, other times it is because you find yourself lost in the stacks of the first floor somewhere in between the row of soybean encyclopedias and the row of dairy farming almanacs.
9. You will meet someone with a Clemson tattoo
What better way to celebrate the natty win than getting a tattoo? Some popular ones have been the Clemson paw, #BYOG, Roll Tigs and 35-31.
10. You’ll meet your best friends
Whether it’s your random roommate, your lab group or a girl you met crying in the bathroom at a frat party, Clemson University will give you the most amazing friends you could ever ask for.
