I've been selected to attend Summer Seniors in-person! What will my day look like? 
During this one-day event, students will get to experience life as a Gamecock for themselves! Participants will attend in-person sessions about college admissions, college academic preparation, student life and more. They will also connect with UofSC Admissions staff, the Diversity, Access & Inclusion team, many other UofSC departments and their peers. The best part: Summer Seniors attendees will get a walking tour of campus, provided lunch, a gift bag, t-shirt and, of course, pictures with Cocky!

I've been selected to attend Summer Seniors virtually! What will my day look like? 
Virtual Summer Seniors will be a multiple-day event! Students will have the opportunity to attend and participate in several student workshops aimed towards helping them prepare for a successful start to college planning. They will engage virtually with their peers as well as Summer Senior Counselors who are current UofSC students, alumni and different academic colleges – the perfect opportunity to ask questions and receive advice. Don’t worry, we have fun, virtual entertainment planned for you, too!

My favorite thing about the University of South Carolina is that everyone feels like family – from my very first visit at Summer Seniors. They’re so welcoming and they make sure you have everything you need. Everyone fits in at UofSC.
