Clubs and Organizations

USC Union encourages participation in a wide variety of student organizations and activities. Co-curricular activities can be related to specific academic topics and so directly support classroom learning, or they can more broadly promote intellectual, social, or physical development. You will learn more about your world, yourself, and about others. You will become a stronger leader, colleague, and friend.

Student Government Association 

The Student Government Association (SGA) is composed of all registered undergraduate students of the University of South Carolina Union. Upon payment of semester fees, students are automatically considered members of this organization. Student Government Association officers are elected by the student body; these officers include a president, vice president, and secretary-treasurer. Together with the senators, they make up the governing council of the SGA.

The purpose of the SGA is to represent the student body both academically and socially. The SGA schedules and directs activities. Any co-curricular activity of interest to students can be organized within the framework of the SGA. You can read the SGA Constitution [pdf] for more information.
