Where Do You
 Fit In?
    College may seem like a mystery to you right
now. But remember, it’s brand new for everyone else
in your class, too. You’re about to join a great group
— the Clemson family! And you’ll have the time of
your life as you find your place in the Clemson com-
munity.
    If you’re nervous about having a roommate,
don’t worry. Some students have never shared a
room with anyone, but it’s not as hard as you may
think. You can have a great time! At Clemson, you’ll
get to know many different kinds of people — that’s
a good thing. Learning to live with other students is
as much a part of your college education as anything
you’ll learn in the classroom.
    We’ve included your housing assignment in this
package with the name and address of your room-
mate. You may want to contact him or her before
you arrive at Clemson. Students tell us that the
phone calls and emails they exchanged before com-
ing to campus took a lot of pressure off their first
day here. So, start getting to know each other and
then relax. We know you want to fit in here. And, at
Clemson, we’re in it together!
               The Big
    Move



         All new students (those who have never attended Clemson University) may
    move in beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 15, 2009. All returning students
    may move in beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 16, 2009. Arrivals prior to these
    dates and times are NOT possible because residential areas are still being prepared, and
    staff are not yet in place.
         We want to make things as easy as possible for you and your parents, so we’ve set up
    this suggested schedule for Saturday and Sunday to help minimize long lines and traffic
    jams. We strongly recommend that you try to arrive according to this schedule.

              Clemson Cares
The Clemson
   Family




               9
          One of the unique things about Clemson is that even though it’s a large university, it feels
     more like a family. Becoming a Clemson Tiger is an experience that will stay with you for a life-
     time. There are a lot of activities going on at Clemson and plenty of different people to enjoy
     them with you.
          Think of the residence hall as your “neighborhood” and the University as your “town.” In
     addition to groups and organizations for a number of different social concerns, political causes,
     religions, hobbies, sports and special interests, the University offers educational activities such as
     stress management, résumé-writing workshops, Black History Month, Alcohol Awareness Month
     and AIDS Awareness Day. Take your pick, or help plan your own!
          Clemson is well-known for its mission of service to the people of South Carolina, and stu-
     dents are right out front with participation in blood drives, events for local charities, recycling,
     clothing and food drives, and many other projects. You can learn something and have fun in
     hundreds of activities — and it’s a great way to meet people with the same interests.
          We’ll make sure you have all the help you need to settle into your new Clemson life. The
     University Housing office employs close to 600 people to assist you in day-to-day living. Best of
     all, you can get help with a lot of your questions or problems from someone right on your floor!
     Your RA can either answer your questions or refer you to someone who can.

     mates:
      Respect Is the Key
          Living with a roommate doesn’t have to be a “big deal.” The most important thing is that you
     keep an open mind and learn to respect each other. Get to know your new roommate the same as
     you would any other new person. You already know that both of you want a Clemson education! So,
     just take it from there.


16
Talk About It
     Want to know how to get along with room-
mates? Talk to them! It’s the most important
thing you can do in a relationship. If something
is bothering you, the sooner you talk about it,
the sooner you’ll be able to work it out. After
all, no one can read your mind, and you can’t
read anyone else’s!

Lend an Ear
    Sometimes, it’s just one of those days. Try
to understand why your roommate may have
reacted a certain way. It may have nothing to
do with you. Maybe he or she is having a tough
time and just needs someone to listen . . . may-
be your roommate can do the same for you.

Take a Breather
     Everyone needs a little space occasionally
— time to be alone and just think things out.
Keep that in mind, and give each other time
for privacy. You can fill your need for peace and
quiet while your roommate is in class or at a
club meeting.

Be User Friendly
     We each have our own ideas about sharing
our things. Take the time to ask before you bor-
row things that belong to your roommate. It’s
an even better idea to talk this out up front and
agree on what’s community property and what’s
off limits.

Share Your Neat Ideas
    You may have your own version of a clean
room, but make sure you share that “vision”
with your roommate. The two of you should
decide together what’s a comfortable level of
clean.

Leave “Fluffy” at Home!
     Unless “Fluffy” is the name of your fish,
you can’t bring him to live in your room! The
only pets you may have in the residence halls
or apartments are fish (tank size limited to 10
gallons or less). That means no dogs, no cats,
no lizards, no snakes, no frogs, no monkeys, no
birds! Campus life just doesn’t suit having a pet.

Be a Tiger Conservationist
     When you live in University housing, we ask
you to practice good environmental and conser-
vation habits. Make efficient use of all resources.
Conserving water and electricity are two of the most
important things you can do to make a positive im-
pact, such as not letting the water run in the sink
while you brush your teeth or shave.
     Always put trash in its proper place. Littering
(inside or outside the buildings) is not permitted
under any circumstances. In short, take responsibil-
ity for your own actions. If you make a mess, please
clean it up.
     We also ask you to reduce, recycle and reuse
materials whenever possible. The University has an
award-winning recycling program in which all fac-
ulty, staff and students make a difference. University
Housing also promotes the Lighten Your Load pro-
gram at the end of the spring semester. This program
allows students to donate unwanted items to local
charities, which decreases the number of things they
have to take home or store. It’s also a worthwhile
opportunity to help others.
     As you spend your time in University build-
ings and around campus, look for ways to support
sustainable living, and get involved in helping to
conserve our precious natural resources.
