My Honors College

Honors Orientation

Honors Orientation brings together everything you’ve learned so far about joining the Gamecock and Honors communities this fall. At Honors Orientation, you will hear from Honors upperclassmen, find out more about the Honors experience, and learn how to get involved within the Honors community. This is also an opportunity to ask questions after completing Honors advising and taking part in UofSC’s New Student Orientation.

Honors Orientation is incorporated into your two-day New Student Orientation session. The Honors presentation will take place at 11 a.m. EST on Day 2 of your registered session. Attendance at the Honors Orientation presentation is required for all incoming Honors freshmen. Honors Orientation will be available in both an in-person and virtual format: 

  • Students registered for virtual Orientation sessions will attend this presentation virtually. 

No RSVP required. You will be provided with a link to join this session prior to your scheduled Orientation date. 

  • Students registered for in-person Orientation sessions will have the choice of attending either an in-person or virtual presentation on Day 2. 

Please let us know if you plan to attend the Day 2 Honors Orientation presentation in-person or virtually by completing this RSVP after registering for your New Student Orientation dates.

Riley Lankes

Hey everyone! My name is Riley Lankes, I’m a junior international studies major with a coffee problem in the South Carolina Honors College. When I’m not busy working on my research, you can most likely find me in my kitchen cooking, gaming, or…asleep. I’m excited to get to know all of you this summer and help introduce you to the Honors College.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
