Clemson and Sober

Clemson and Sober is a student organization, founded and run by students, to support other students who have an interest in sobriety. We speak from experience when we say, it is possible to attend college and stay sober!


We are a growing student group. We develop and evolve with each semester as members graduate and new students arrive. Right now, our primary purpose is to make space for Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) meetings on campus. Fellowship, friendship and support extend beyond the limits of our meeting times; as a student organization we have the means to organize social activities for and among ourselves. Don't be shy if you have questions – we are always happy to help!


During the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters, Clemson and Sober meets twice a week, on Tuesday (open) and Thursday nights (closed).

Tuesdays from 6–7 p.m. in the Redfern Health Center basement – OPEN

The doors will be locked, but there is a security guard on duty to let you in. This is an open meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are for happy for anyone to attend — especially newcomers. In keeping with the singleness of purpose and the Third Tradition, which states, “The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking,” we ask that all who participate confine their discussion to their problems with alcohol.

Thursdays from 6–7 p.m. in the Tillman Hall Digital Media Lab – CLOSED

The Digital Media Lab in Tillman Hall is on the second floor; the door to the room will be marked with the A.A. symbol – a triangle with a circle in it. This is a closed meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. In support of A.A.'s singleness of purpose, attendance at closed meetings is limited to persons who have a desire to stop drinking. If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you are welcome to attend this meeting. We ask that when discussing our problems, we confine ourselves to those problems as they relate to alcoholism.
