Don’t Give In to Road Rage

Don’t Give In to Road Rage

A quick temper can put you and others in danger. Remember, it’s nothing personal - The other motorist doesn’t know you. Outrage isn’t justified behind the wheel, and it could cause an accident or police intervention. Give them the benefit of a doubt - There may actually be a good reason for others’ unintentional hostile interaction. They could be lost or late for a plane! Practice basic courtesy. Stick with fundamentally sound and safe habits to avoid confrontations. Put away the phone and pay attention to what’s going on around you. Use an appropriate speed on the entry ramp in order to merge properly and stay out of the left lane unless you’re passing another vehicle. Nationwide Insurance is the official insurance provider of Clemson Alumni Association and offers a special discount on auto insurance for Clemson alumni.

NYC Club Helps With Hurricane Relief

The NYC & Tri-State Area Clemson club partnered with the Red Hook Initiative on Sunday, November 11th. Eighteen volunteers joined together to help in the recovery effort in an area that was still without power after 14 days. The Red Hook Initiative brought in volunteers from all over to help deliver food and other items of need to those people who were home bound due to either illness or injury. Teams ventured into ten different apartment buildings in the area, walking up flights of stairs in the dark to offer supplies and flashlights. Those served were grateful for the volunteer efforts and everything that was being done to help them get back on their feet.

Barker Backs Value of On-Campus Experience

Barker Backs Value of On-Campus Experience

In a recent essay for the Presidential Perspectives national leadership series, President Barker asserted that the value of higher education transcends online learning and classroom instruction and that students’ development is tied to the ever-important on-campus experience. His essay, entitled, “The Endangered Campus: Defining and Defending the Value of Place-Based Higher Education,” examines the impact of online education on today’s colleges and universities and how a “virtual” college experience can never replace the face-to-face, one-on-one teaching and mentoring provided to students on campus.
