Welcome from Dr. Sandra Kelly, vice provost and dean of undergraduate studies
First Generation students are a wonderful and appreciated part of our UofSC community.
As a First Generation college graduate myself, I know that a university environment
can be confusing and challenging but I also know that it can be a wonderful place
to be. I encourage all of you to open yourself to all of the wonderful experiences
that you can have here and also reach out to faculty and staff for support when you
need it. We are here for you!
The University of South Carolina is honored to be named a First Forward Institution by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrations (NASPA) for our work with first-generation students.
