About USC Connect
USC Connect is for ALL students at USC Columbia, Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Sumter and Union… not only students with a certain GPA, resume, or background… ALL students…
The USC Connect website provides resources for students, faculty, and staff including a searchable database of opportunities, information on 5 pathways for beyond the classroom engagement, tools for reflection (e.g., e-portfolios, and information on completing graduation with leadership distinction.)
