Global Gamecock Guides

The Global Gamecock Guides program was created to better support both incoming exchange students and local UofSC study abroad returnees. Exchange students who participate in the program will be paired with a UofSC student who will help guide their study abroad experience here in South Carolina. Guides will help introduce you to campus resources, local events, and opportunities to get involved in the community. We hope that participating in the program you will gain a deeper connection to the UofSC community and experience all that South Carolina has to offer during your semester abroad!


  • Create long-term relationships with UofSC students
  • Gain a deeper understanding of U.S. culture
  • Learn about events and resources in the UofSC community
