Phishing emails circulating on university accounts

A significant number of “phishing” emails have been identified on the student email system recently. Phishing messages say things such as your email storage is almost full, your email will stop working if you don’t click on a link to verify your account, etc. These are not legitimate email messages and should be deleted. The University of South Carolina will never ask for you to verify your email account in this manner.

Stories for Students


Mungo Teaching Award winner: David Wethey

David Wethey came to Carolina with a mandate to design a graduate program for ecology. That was 37 years ago. Today, Wethey can rattle off the accomplishments of students from the ’80s, the ’90s and just a few years ago. Many of those students were responsible for nominating and supporting him for a Mungo Teaching Award.

Advancing SC workforce

The University of South Carolina has been preparing students for the workforce for generations. As the state has attracted more high-tech manufacturing operations, the need for more skilled workers has grown rapidly. The university can now increase its reach to help even more South Carolinians take advantage of these opportunities with a $20 million National Science Foundation grant.
