Indoor Tanning on Clemson university's campus

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, using indoor tanning beds can increase your risk of developing Melanoma by 59%. Despite this statistic, Hayden Freitas, an Ultra Tan employee in Clemson, SC, says the tanning beds are especially busy on Clemson's Campus.

"Because spring break is coming up, girls—and guys—want that good bronzed glow before they go on their vacations to Mexico, Bora Bora...places like that. Also, it’s formal season, so sororities and fraternities like to get sprayed and like to get a good color on their body before the season starts." - Hayden Freitas.
