‘Tiger Rag’ celebrates 75th anniversary

The 2017 season marks the 75th anniversary of the use of “Tiger Rag” as the official Clemson fight song.

The song was first recorded in 1917 by the Original Dixieland Jass Band, but it wasn’t successful until 1941, when the Clemson cadet bandmaster, Robert Dean Ross, bought it from the Old Southern Music Company.

During the 1942 season, the band played “Tiger Rag” after every touchdown. The practice soon became a tradition.

Clemson scientists, students leading efforts for hurricane relief

Clemson University marine scientists and students are leading efforts to get aid to the hurricane-impacted Florida Keys and Caribbean.

The Childress Lab, which the team is a part of, has been doing research in that area for 25 years, focusing on transplanting coral fragments. It is still unclear how much Hurricane Irma affected these fragments.

CUSG is also working with the Clemson Caribbean Initiative to collect donations for Clemson’s Disaster Relief Fund. They will be accepting donations in the Student Government office until Oct. 17. They are also accepting donations through Venmo with the username @ClemsonRelief.

Trauma kits installed at Clemson University

Trauma kits designed to control severe bleeding were recently installed in the Hendrix Student Center and in the Cooper Library. 

The kits are tied to the Stop the Bleed campaign launched by the Department of Homeland Security a few years ago. 

“One of the recognized causes of death is uncontrolled hemorrhaging or severe bleeding sustained from a shooting or active hostile event,” Capt. Bill Shivar of Clemson University Fire and EMS said. “These kits are intended for building occupants to render themselves or others with hemorrhage control while waiting on first responders to provide treatment.”

Capt. Shivar, along with Lt. Chris Harrington of CUPD, helped lead the project with CUSG Chief of Staff Emma Hume.

The kits were purchased through CUSG funding and installed in early August. 

More kits are expected to be installed in Brackett Hall,  the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, Fike Recreation Center and Tillman Hall.
