what's happening @UofSC
U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer will be the guest speaker at the University of South Carolina’s winter commencement exercises Dec. 18.
Life on an urban campus comes with lots of traffic. But it’s not just car traffic, especially these days, and it’s not all bad. With the surge in private and public-private student housing downtown, and improvements to bike lanes and shuttle service, the campus commute doesn’t have to be a headache. In fact, for many students, ditching the drive provides a welcome improvement to quality of life.
A new book by first lady Patricia Moore-Pastides shares what life is like inside one of the most recognizable buildings on campus. “At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe: Life in the University of South Carolina President’s House,” offers a look at the first families and their memories of the home, along with some history of the house and photographs of the home and gardens. There are even a few recipes for entertaining and photos of floral arrangement designs.
The toll of America’s opioid epidemic is tragic, but UofSC researchers are engaged in the struggle, finding tools that could help turn the tide.
Just because lung cancer patients are living longer and sometimes even cured of the disease, long-term survivors of the disease often cope with distressing symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, depression and anxiety. Karen Kane McDonnell, a nursing professor in USC’s College of Nursing, plans to test an intervention to reduce their symptom burden.

Undergraduate research opens door to opportunity
Pre-med sophomore Karlye Denner was working at a Columbia health clinic when she began to notice the high number of Latino patients who seemed at risk for diabetes. Intrigued, the Capstone Scholar from Closter, New Jersey, applied for a Magellan Apprentice Undergraduate Research Grant to conduct independent research on the issue.
Data traffic controller
Physics professor Yanwen Wu recently received a National Science Foundation Career grant to explore ways to speed up information processing. She’s specifically looking at using the photon—a particle with no electrical charge—to carry information, ultimately preventing traffic jams and accelerating data flow.
