to the University of South Carolina! I am excited to have you join
our Gamecock family! This is an important transition in your life
and can be exhilarating and overwhelming all at once. I remember
when I was preparing for my first year at Carolina. I was ecstatic
beyond belief but incredibly nervous all the same. It was a new
place with new people, and I was used to the comfort of my hometown.
However, all of my nerves quickly disappeared after moving in to
USC. I learned a lot about the Gamecock community and the on-going
events that welcome and introduce students to the university. USC
holds Welcome Week each year and is filled with activities like
Welcome Back Carolina, the Convocation ceremony, and the First
Year Reading Experience just to name a few. Student life does
not end at Welcome Week either. Throughout your time here at Carolina,
you can take part in one of over 300
student organizations on campus or become part of the Gamecock
spirit at an athletic
event. Making the University of South Carolina your personal
Carolina has never been easier. This is your place to learn, grow,
and have fun.
In order to ease your transition, this website has
been created. The information here is designed to aid your move-in
process or your exploration around our beautiful campus and the
city of Columbia. The University of South Carolina Visitor Center,
Carolina community, and the city of Columbia are here to help as
you move in to USC on Saturday, August 15th.
Finally, please never hesitate to contact the Visitor
Center at 800-922-9755 or at
firstname.lastname@example.org especially if you have any questions.
The Gamecock community looks forward to seeing you in the fall!
