Tigers Off Campus Student Council

Who We Are

 The Tigers Off Campus Council is composed primarily of sophomores and juniors, as well as a few graduate students, who live at different apartment complexes off-campus and are involved in the Clemson community. This council works closely as a partner program to Healthy Campus, and its main focus is distributing Did You Know and Think Ahead information, encouraging off-campus property managers to host alcohol-free events of their own accord, identifying and solving safety issues that have become prevalent in individual properties, and organizing other events.  The council provides a chance for involvement on Clemson’s campus and within the community with very minimal time commitment. 

Why Create A Council Of Students Who Live Off Campus? 

  • Core Data showed that alcohol-related behaviors that Clemson tracks (memory loss, missed a class, performed poorly on a test, DUI, and in trouble with authorities) are higher off campus than on, with the widest gap being drinking and driving.  With this council, we hope to reduce DUI rates of off-campus students by partnering with Think Ahead projects and providing students with information on getting home safely to their apartments.
  • By creating a council of students, it gives the council the opportunity for leadership and bringing the voice of students living off campus and making the concerns with alcohol off campus known.  

Want To Get Involved?

The Tigers Off Campus council meets every other Tuesday at 5:25 p.m. in 304 Fike Recreation Center.  If you're interested in becoming a member, please contact one of the Healthy Campus Graduate Assistants: Richard Duncan at rgdunca@clemson.edu or Meredith Jones at mj7@clemson.edu.
