Connect with Like-Minded Peers

The College of HRSM is home to 17 different student-run organizations at the University of South Carolina.

The College of HRSM takes great pride in cultivating leaders. And what better way to step up than through a student-led organization?

Don't worry... not everyone feels comfortable leading when, at first, you are still trying to find your own groove. College can be very overwhelming. But through your involvement in a student organization, you will be surrounded by people who are going through the same challenges and who have similar goals and aspirations. These student organizations often become the ultimate support system. Over time, your confidence will grow.

Your peers aren't the only people who will be lending support. You will also gain access to industry professionals and faculty, who can expose you to exclusive opportunities.
