Carolina Action Day
Join fellow Gamecocks as we become a sea of garnet and black at the State House as
a united advocate for Carolina. Sponsored by the USC Alumni Association, this event
is a unique opportunity for us to take an active role in increasing awareness on legislative
issues. Let’s stand together as a one voice on the important issues impacting the
College of Arts and Sciences and the Carolina community. Together, we can make a difference!
Each year the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Director of External
Relations are proud to recognize our graduating seniors at the USC Alumni Association
