At the University of South Carolina, we apply what we learn in class to the research we conduct in the lab and in the field. We gain new perspectives from the world around us as we share our experiences in community service projects. We solve problems in new and creative ways. See how we connect.

Eric Sneider

After playing around with special effects software for the last several years, ERIC SNEIDER, Class of 2013, is taking steps to make a career of it. He says his time at USC Sumter has been a great starting point.

Eric is working toward a media arts degree that he will finish at USC Columbia, and his art classes have provided a solid foundation for him to build upon. He credits Lynwood Watts, associate dean for student affairs, for being an inspiration to him. As a mentor, Watts is always available to help and always open to new ideas.

Student government has taught Eric how to work within a system. It's also taught him the importance of teamwork. These experiences will carry over to a career, he says, as he's gained "a real appreciation for those who want to be involved, and I have to work through them because I can't do everything on my own."
