Top scholars to join incoming UofSC freshman class

The University of South Carolina will welcome some of the nation’s and the state’s top students for the university’s most valuable and prestigious scholarships program. Recipients of the Stamps, Carolina and Hamilton scholar awards for in-state students and the Stamps, McNair and Horseshoe Scholar awards for out-of-state students will join the Carolina community in August.

A total solar eclipse – when the moon orbits directly in front of the sun – is the perfect time to test Einstein’s theory of general relativity. A University of South Carolina professor will do that in August, using modern technology, high-powered telescopes and cameras to record the sky over South Carolina.
