CUBS Living-Learning Community

The Community for Undergraduate Business Students (CUBS) is a living-learning community for freshman students in business majors. Students participate in social events, as well as workshops, core classes, tours and community service throughout the year.

"My time as a resident and first-year student in CUBS helped set me on a strong foundation for my academic career at Clemson; it built strong friendships with my peers and gave me the confidence to interact more with my professors. Now that I am a member of the leadership committee, I have been given a chance to help prepare and shape the students that come after me, along with the opportunity to engage with professors in talking about interest beyond a particular class, learn more about their discipline, and see what knowledge they can offer me to steer my future." - Noah Mackey

The program focuses on helping students reach their educational and career goals while forming friendships lasting through their college experience and beyond. Students live in the new village in Douthit Hills in Building E, where students will attend Business 1010 classes and be in close proximity to The Hub. The Hub features a Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, Market and CUPD substation on the first floor. The second floor houses recreation space including a spin studio, group exercise space, strength/flex space, cardio area and locker rooms. A Smokehouse BBQ, Fusion Cafe, Garden Pizzeria, Fresh Market and seating for 450 are all featured on the third floor of The Hub.

There is an annual fee of $400 for the CUBS LLC program. If you have any questions, please contact Suerea Wooten at

"So many memories were made in CUBS during my freshman year...from studying for tests together and attending the awards dinner to just hanging out in the lounge, the friends I made through CUBS will last a life time!" - Nicholas Cady, Financial Management
"Being a part of CUBS made my freshman year so much more special. The friends that I made through CUBS are friendships that will last a life time and I am so thankful for that. Getting to live, study, and do CUBS events with close friends is an experience you won't have the chance to do ever again! After my experience of being a CUBS student, I knew I wanted to give back to this amazing program and make sure as many freshman as possible had the same experience I did!" - Alexis Hale
