Virtual Visits

Exploring is just a click away! Our mission is to help students reach their goals, and we are eager to support you during the college search process. And while we would rather meet you in person on our historic Horseshoe, there are many ways to visit campus and connect virtually to learn about all the university has to offer.

See iconic places on campus from a student's perspective, learn about our university and the admissions process from one of our representatives, or schedule some time to talk with a student one-on-one. You'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions no matter which session — or sessions — you attend.

Virtual Experience Options

Online Campus Tours

Register for a live and interactive student-led tour presentation hosted by University Ambassadors. These sessions will give you an in-depth look at popular places and life as a Gamecock. Or explore our self-guided tour map to see highlights of our campus.

Undergraduate Admissions Virtual Series

This virtual series brings the Gamecock experience from Columbia, S.C., to wherever you are! Sessions cover a range of topics: We'll help you understand the college search process, guide you through enrollment and provide an in-depth look at our academic programs and student services.

Our virtual lobby is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Current students are available to answer questions about the university and share their Gamecock experiences.
