Tim Smith

Prior to his role in the Honors College, Tim spent eighteen-years on the music faculty at Rutgers University as the Director of the University Marching Band. Working with students on a large university campus is where he developed his passion for advising students as they navigated academic and life issues on their way success in and out of the classroom. He’s excited to be at UofSC to advise students in National Fellowships and Scholar Programs.

Tim holds a master’s degree in music from Messiah College and a bachelor’s degree in music education from The Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. He arrived in Columbia two years ago with his wife Michelle, who teaches in the College of Information and Communication. When he is not on campus, you can find him exercising, enjoying the outdoors, cooking, or taking long walks with Michelle and their dog Jethro.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
