The University Women's Club was founded in 1921 with the objectives of furthering
the educational aims of the University of South Carolina and encouraging social interaction
among the members of the university community.
What is The University Women's Club?
The University Women's Club of the University of South Carolina is an organization
that promotes friendship among its members, leadership among women and support for
the University community.
First formed in 1921, and then reorganized periodically as women's opportunities reformed,
this association has continuously brought generations of women together across the
university for almost 100 years.
Over the decades, the organization evolved in ways that reflect the many changes in
the lives of women associated with the university. Many women who now join the university
community juggle growing demands for their time, needed both to grow careers and necessary
for personal, family and community care. The Women's University Club aims to create
a welcoming place where university women can meet, learn from each other and build
support networks within our stable university community. A pillar of stability through
decades of change, we offer offer programs and common interest groups for members,
as well as 3 annual social events on campus.
What do we do?
The University Women’s Club works with University Leadership to provide members with
a variety of social opportunities through the year:
Annual Fall Coffee
Holiday Decorating of the President’s House
Annual Spring Luncheon
Programs and University Tours
Common Interest Groups
Who can join?
We welcome all women of our University community, upholding that "learning humanizes
character" as is inscribed in latin on the original seal of the University of South
Carolina, founded in 1801. We ask that our members promote friendship among each
other, leadership among women and support for the University community.
