Clemson study abroad partners with Army ROTC to draft students

Over a month into the conflict in Ukraine, Clemson’s center for study abroad has partnered with the Army ROTC to draft students in Europe.
“We figured they were already over there, so we would just ship them off to the frontlines,” said a representative from the office of study abroad.
Hundreds of Clemson students are currently studying in countries like Poland, Germany and Hungary, according to reports by the study abroad office.
While Russia has not expanded its invasion past eastern Ukraine, NATO nations, including the United States, are preparing for the worst.
“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” said President Joe Biden of Russian President Vladimir Putin last week at a conference with other NATO countries.
Some students The Kitten spoke to feel unprepared for the war.
“I’ve only watched Forrest Gump two times, and I can’t see myself playing ping pong that well,” said Iam Nogonamakeit, a junior marketing major.
Other students are confident that things will deescalate before they are stationed in eastern Europe.
“We’ve made it through one cold war, and we can make it through another,” said Alex Smart, a senior political science major. “The last time that a bunch of European countries waited for their allies to get invaded before stepping in, it all ended up working out.”
Documents obtained by The Kitten from the Fightin’ Tiger Battalion show that students with extensive Call of Duty experience will be the first to start bootcamp.
