Student Government is an active body that works for university students through numerous
initiatives and programs such as Swipe Out Hunger, where students can donate unused
meal swipes, and portable chargers in the student section of the Williams Brice Stadium.
Student Government even assists in providing a shuttle to the Columbia Airport during
Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, and Spring Break.
Student Government partners with the University of South Carolina Parking and Transportation
services to provide a shuttle from campus to the Columbia Metropolitan Airport. The
shuttle will operate during fall break, Thanksgiving break and spring break. Reservations are required. Reservations will close the Friday before departure and return dates. The bus will
only wait five minutes before departing.
Student Government and Athletics have partnered to bring portable chargers to the
stadium's student section. The Charger GoGo machine allows students to scan a QR code,
type in their phone number, and check out a charger to use during the game that has
all of the phone cords for different devices. Chargers can then be returned to the
machine in the student section, but if you forget, you can turn it in to the charging
machine outside of Russell House. The charging machines are located adjacent to concessions
underneath the Cockpit and across from the ATM outside of Russell House. Never walk
home or leave a game with a dead cellphone again!
