Forever begins on South Carolina's historic Horseshoe. It's where the university started in 1801 and it's where you can start your campus tour today. Take a look around and picture yourself here.
Here your worldview broadens. Your classroom is not bound by walls, and your learning is enhanced by insightful faculty, hands-on problem solving, groundbreaking research and global study opportunities. It's your time to discover what, and who, you want to be.
There's no place like the Horseshoe. Nestled beneath ancient oaks, this is where you can unwind, rejuvenate or literally just hang out. It's a green oasis within a vibrant city where friendships are formed early and last a lifetime.
Like the crowds that assemble for special events, the bonds you form here continue to grow. Whether you join as student, sister or brother, classmate or mentor, you are always a member of the Carolina family.
Commencement here is a joyous step. It’s your day to celebrate not only where you've been, but where you've yet to go.
You may leave here for new experiences, but the memories draw you back. This is a place of new beginnings where you find joyful surprises, lifelong relationships and family ties that span the generations.
