This week in Homecoming events

Unlike previous years, this year’s Homecoming celebration doesn't ending with Saturday’s  football game against Auburn at Williams-Brice Stadium. There is still another week left in this year’s two-week-long Homecoming celebration. The theme is “The Roaring ‘20s: The Cockiest Decade Yet,” so get ready to be transported a century back in time.

Here is a day-by-day guide for week two of Homecoming. While new health and safety requirements are in play, you'll still be able to enjoy this year’s full slate of both virtual and in-person Homecoming events. 


If you’ve missed live music like we have, you’re in luck. Take a break from your day and head over to the Russell House Patio for Cockchella 12-3 p.m. to listen to hits from the Roaring '20s to now. 

Later in the evening embrace your inner high roller at Cocky’s Casino. Participate in this virtual casino trivia event 6:45-7:45 p.m. for a magic show and the chance to win the $200 cash prize.


Hip Hop Wednesday will be back on Greene Street from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. A professional DJ will spin new and old school hip-hop music, so bring a mask and your best dance moves to take part in UofSC's favorite day party.


Spurs and Struts is a longstanding Carolina tradition that showcases some of UofSC’s best dancing, talent and spirit. The virtual doors to the event open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m. You can watch the livestream on Strom Fields or on your own. 

After the show, attend Thursday After Dark’s Murder at the Speakeasy from 8 to 10 p.m. You can join the murder mystery event online through Garnet Gate. 


Greene Street is your canvas from 2 to 4 p.m. for Cockadoodle Friday. Bring your 1920s-themed designs and create a mural of your choice with chalk.

Later, enjoy NPHC’s Stroll Off. The virtual doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30 p.m. African American fraternities and sororities within the National Pan-Hellenic Council go stepping and strolling, which comes from West African cultural traditions of using the body as an instrument to move to and create intricate rhythms illustrating the strength of unity. The stroll has been part of the Annual Homecoming Show since the early 1970s.
