Recording the History of Clemson University
Clemson University boasts six campus media organizations: CTV,
Clemson's closed-circuit student television station; WSBF 88.1 FM,
Clemson University's 3,000-watt student radio station; The Tiger,
Clemson's student newspaper; Taps, Clemson's yearbook; Semantics,
Clemson's student literary and variety magazine; and The Tiger Town
Observer, Clemson's conservative journal of news and opinion.
All six of these media outlets exist as quintessential “service learning” opportunities for Clemson students. Our goals are:
- to create, through both training and opportunity, a truly professional media environment, one designed to bring out the very best in our student journalists, artists, communicators, technicians and engineers;
- to provide platforms worthy of our students’ hard work – informational, creative and technical;
- to provide customer service and response superior to that found in comparable private media outlets – for our consumers, for our advertisers and for our underwriters;
- to be ethical in all matters, and to keep the best interests of the Clemson community foremost in our minds at all times as we work;
- to be free of bias against any group, and to welcome the participation and viewpoints of all Clemson community members, regardless of their backgrounds; and
- to be responsible stewards of the university’s resources, and to treat those resources with the same care and respect we would exercise with our own.
