Events for Students

UofSC is a great place to be during the summer, and there's plenty for you to do when you're not hitting the books (or the pool). We've rounded up a list of student events at UofSC and a sampling of what's happening around town. Unless otherwise noted, UofSC events are free with your Carolina Card. For even more, visit the UofSC Calendar of Events for events open to the public and the Athletics Master Calendar for Gamecock sports schedules.
