Open House

Welcome to Open House at the University of South Carolina! As a senior in high school, this is your special opportunity to experience our university first hand and to see for yourself why students decide to call Carolina their home away from home.

Open House will be held on Saturday, August 25 and Saturday, September 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The events are free of charge and open only to high school seniors and their parents.

Campus Tours

University Ambassadors lead campus walking tours for students and parents to experience our beautiful campus, including our historic Horseshoe, learn about our thriving city, and ask questions.

Academic & Student Services Fair

Students and their families meet one-on-one with representatives from various academic colleges and student services departments, all in one convenient location.

Information Sessions

These rotating sessions cover a variety of topics including admission requirements and the application process, scholarships and financial aid, and diversity and inclusion. There will also be a panel of current students sharing their Carolina experience and answering attendee questions.

Residence Hall Visits

Student representatives from campus housing lead students and their parents on tours of select residence halls around campus and share their experiences as Gamecocks.

Wellness & Fitness Center

Students and their families are welcome to self-tour our fitness facility, and outdoor pool and community area.
