President's Message about Homecoming Tailgate

October 30, 2018

The University of South Carolina’s Homecoming celebration is a special time for current students and alumni to come together and share their passion for the university. The fact that members of our university community who attended an alumni tailgate celebration felt threatened or unwelcome is completely contrary to the atmosphere we pride ourselves on creating. We appreciate the comments Sheriff Lott made today and we look forward to assisting with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department review of the incident and improving procedures moving forward.
