60th Anniversary

In 1959, USC Lancaster was established in downtown Lancaster to serve the people in six surrounding counties. As the oldest of the Palmetto Colleges, USC Lancaster remains a devoted and purposeful institution of higher education for the citizens of this state. In 2019-2020, we will pause on several occasions to remember our past—those who served us, who served with us, and the accomplishments of both students and colleagues. However, while certainly worthy of reflection and celebration, the history of the campus and our accomplishments are not the sole focus this year. We are carefully planning for a future that will include educating more students, increasing our outreach, and collaborating with more partners for meaningful impact. Over the years, the campus and student body have grown, but our mission remains the same…we’re devoted to preparing students to continue their education in the University and throughout life. Check back here often for updates to this year’s celebration events. Thank you for helping us celebrate 60 years of education and service.
