The Rapscallion was a student run humor publication of Clemson University. It began as a creative inquiry project within the English department in Fall 2007. Hoping to one day become self sufficient, the publication accepted humorous submissions from students, alumni and staff members. The Rapscallion was also responsible for holding random shenanigans on the Clemson campus. In fall 2008, the staff hosted an Epic Shaving Cream Battle on Bowman Field for no reason other than spreading happy humor feelings among the student body. More recently they held an open mic humor night at a nearby Deli, Main Street Deli & Coffeehouse, in downtown Central.
The current faculty advisor for the Rapscallion is John Warner, a Clemson University professor and resident funny-man. He is also the author of Fondeling Your Muse and So You Want to Be President?
The Rapscallion also has a penchant for funny mustaches.
