At USC Sumter, the college experience is important. With so many opportunities to participate in campus life, our students find that USC Sumter is truly a “home away from home.” This is a great place to start your college experience.

Your Carolina Card

The Carolina Card [pdf] is designed to cover all of your needs as a student. Not only do you use it as your student ID for entrance to events, the library, and other campus buildings, you can also use it for CarolinaCash. You can put money on the card for use in the Bookstore, Fire Ant cafe, Anderson Library, and certain vending machines.


Your Campus

There are plenty of places on campus where students meet to study, socialize, and hang out. Not sure where a building is? You can probably find it on our virtual tour!

Anderson Library

The Anderson Library is a great place to connect with other students in your classes and study together, do research, or share notes.


The campus bookstore is located in the Student Union Building. It's your source for textbooks, school supplies, Gamecock clothing, jewelry, license plates, greeting cards, graduation gowns, gifts, and many new items arriving daily. Shop in store or online.

Fire Ant Cafe

A popular meeting place, the cafe is located in the Student Union Building. We have a variety of food options for both breakfast and lunch ranging from grab-n-go bagels and yogurt, to made-to-order eggs, delicious biscuits, one of a kind cheeseburgers, club sandwiches, salads, cheese steaks and much more.

The Fire Ant Cafe is located in the Student Union Building on the USC Sumter campus. The Student Union Building (SUB) is located between the Nettles Building and the Anderson Library. Parking is available in several lots for Fire Ant Cafe visitors. Feel free to park in the lot next to the Anderson Library or the lot behind the Student union and Library (off of Theater Drive). Please see the map here for the best entrance for you! [pdf]

Want a free burger, a t-shirt, and the honor of having your name and photo on our Wall of Fame? Give our Ant Attack Ultimate Burger Challenge a try. You can do it. (Or just have fun trying.) The taste, price and service will keep you coming back to our Fire Ant Café.
