University of South Carolina



Enjoy the good life at USC — dynamic activities, interesting places and exciting events!

Get involved with more than 400 clubs and organizations. Choose from sororities or fraternities; professional, service, military, political and religious groups; intramurals and sports clubs; honor societies; residence hall or student governments; entertainment and media and political clubs; or get your friends and create your own for a special interest.

Concerts, Culture, Community

Take in a free movie. Listen to a thought-provoking guest speaker or hilarious comedian. Rock out at big-name concerts. Relish great performances by the USC orchestra, opera, jazz combos and the Palmetto Pans steel band. Stage plays at the Longstreet Theatre or at the Lab Theatre. Grab your new best friends for Dance Marathon, our annual all-night fundraiser supporting Palmetto Richland Children's Hospital. Imagine it and you can do it!

Action — on the Field and off

We wouldn't be USC Gamecocks without our athletics and recreation programs! Intramural sports, fitness activities at the Strom and our nationally recognized NCAA Division I intercollegiate men's and women's teams give you many ways to strut your stuff.

Gamecock Spirit

It's a force. It's a feeling. It's a frame of mind.
It's USC's Gamecock school spirit — alive and well all across campus!

Established 1801

Gamecock spirit has been a force since the University was established in 1801.
