Capstone Scholars

Events and Excursions

Capstone Scholars come to experience UofSC, not just attend it. We have year-round events to bring students together to learn new skills and, of course, have a blast.

Recurring Events

While we are constantly adding new and exciting opportunities for our students, here are some programs that people have come to know and love. Check out our calendar to see when they'll be back!

Hot Cookie Friday

Sometimes you just need a cookie. Every other Friday during the school year we open up our office for cookies, milk and tons of games, from Bananagrams to Mario Kart. We also invite other offices around campus to join us!

Block Party

At Capstone, we begin the school year with a bang! We close off the parking lot between Columbia and Capstone Halls, and bring in a huge backyard barbecue. There is live music, inflatable games and more.

Etiquette Dinner

Who doesn't want an excuse to be fancy? Pick up a few skills as a certified etiquette coach walks you through a three-course meal. Did we mention it's on the 17th floor of Capstone Hall?  Don't worry, we'll get the tab.
