Living at South Carolina Beta

With its return to Clemson in Fall of 2016, South Carolina Beta will be occupying the exact same hall they did during the first colonization! The chapter is excited to return to the space they once called home in Fall of 2017! This dorm consists of 46 beds for our members, a chapter room where they can have small meetings, watch TV and use the kitchenette, a study room and a cafĂ© with a coffee bar and bistro tables for studying and catching up with their sisters. South Carolina Beta is a chapter that is a part of the Fraternity Housing Corporation (FHC). When moving into this space, FHC was able to help furnish and redecorate all of the common areas as well as provide supplies for the kitchen. The members are happy to have a space to call home.
