Family Weekend

Family Weekend 2021 will be here before you can say, "Go Gamecocks!" Spend an unforgettable weekend with your Carolina family, Sept. 24-25, and enjoy fellowship, football and so much more!

Family Weekend is the perfect way to get to know the Carolina community better. While you're in town, spend time learning all our thriving hometown — Columbia, South Carolina — has to offer, visit our historic UofSC campus and meet fellow family members and students. 

Traditionally, this event includes educational sessions, receptions, and a spectacular football tailgate prior to watching the Gamecocks play! Stay tuned for details for the 2021 event. 

'Til then, get a head start on your Family Weekend planning by saving the date and securing your accommodations in advance.
