Celebrating First-Generation Students

Being the first person in your family to attend college is a badge of honor, and USC is ready to celebrate you and your successes.

USC First-Generation Celebration Week (coming November 2024)


First-Generation Student Organization

The goal of First-Generation Student Organization (FGS) is to connect first-generation college students at the University of South Carolina with each other, with faculty and staff, and with community leaders. It also aims to raise awareness of resources that may be helpful to these students, as well as to set and meet a fundraising goal each year, with the money raised going to a charity chosen by the student organization that promotes higher education.
