Capstone Scholars

Events and Excursions

Capstone Scholars come to experience USC, 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 what we have in store for you this semester!

Hot Cookie Friday

Sometimes you just need a cookie. Throughout the semester on select Friday afternoons we gather together with cookies, other treats and activities. It's a wonderful way to connect with each other and staff from around campus including Student Life, Undergraduate Research, National Fellowships and Scholar Programs, and the Career Center.

Service Events

Capstone Scholars love to make an impact on the community, whether that be on USC's campus, the great Columbia area or within the state of South Carolina.

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 House?  Don't worry, we'll get the tab.
