Graphic with stars in the background and the words "U-NITES! Your Clemson Moonlight Series" on it.College can be a stressful experience for the individual student. All of the tests, essays and homework can take a toll, and financial constraints often further complicate matters. In this environment, it might be difficult to maintain an active, fulfilling social life.

However, U-NITES! supplies students with pre-planned, on-campus events that take the stress out of entertainment.

“By providing free events on campus, U-NITES! is giving students an opportunity to step outside their room and have a good time. Our events allow students to connect with one another and make fun, new memories without the burden of feeling like they will need to pay for these events,” said Nikki Williamson, associate director for student programs.

This semester, U-NITES! will be putting on a number of events that appeal to a diverse group of students. These events will include old favorites like U-Play Trivia and U-Wonder as well as new, exciting opportunities like U-Animate. Attendees are sure to find something to love.

Mark your calendars for these upcoming events!
