what's happening @UofSC

There’s a M.A.P.P. for that

Like many new college students, Tamaragail Tarrant, Trevor Prioleau and Kennette Smalls came to the University of South Carolina with few connections and plenty of nervous energy. Navigating a campus the size of UofSC can be intimidating, and all three students describe themselves as shy, whether or not they seem that way when you meet them. Luckily, the three got involved with the university’s Multicultural Assistance Peer Program, a peer-to-peer student mentoring program for students with multicultural backgrounds, and found everything they need to fit in, have fun and get the most from their college experience.

Another way to hail Carolina

How long has it bothered John Herr that Carolina’s alma mater, “We Hail Thee Carolina,” is paired with a tune also used by other universities? More than half a century. In 2005, he decided to do something about it.
