Spring/Summer 2020 Update

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have had to cancel our Spring 2020 Big Friday dates. Any information about possible new dates before Fall 2020 will be posted as soon as information is available.


What is Big Friday?

On designated Fridays throughout the fall and spring semesters we welcome prospective students and their families for Big Friday sessions! Big Friday offers a comprehensive overview of the College of Engineering and Computing and will typically include a welcome from the dean, a current student question and answer panel and tours led by faculty in specific majors.

  • 3:30 to 3:45 p.m. - Welcome from the Dean
  • 3:45 to 4 p.m. – General overview of the College of Engineering and Computing
  • 4 to 4:30 p.m. – Question and answer panel with current students
  • 4:30 to 5 p.m. – Faculty guided tour of the department of your choice


High school age and older prospective students (and their families), that are interested in majoring in engineering or computing.

When and How?

Big Friday is generally held six times per year, one Friday in February, March, April, September, October and November.


Big Friday does not include a tour of the campus. Please register for a full UofSC Campus Tour with the Visitors Center.
