Students in Andrea L’Hommedieu’s oral history class in the South Carolina Honors College are interviewing military veterans this semester, learning the art of asking questions and telling stories.
what's happening @UofSC
Carolina recently relocated a group of granite-and-bronze markers that memorialize 28 students and alumni who died during World War I and the Mexican border dispute. Thirteen markers have been placed on the front lawn of the War Memorial Building (Sumter at Pendleton), and plans call for installation of 15 more to replace markers that were lost decades ago.
The Finding Common Ground series, presented by the UofSC’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, continues this fall with guest lecturer, Deirdre Cooper Owens, assistant professor of history at Queens College, CUNY, and author of Medical Bondage: Race, Gender, and the Origins of American Gynecology. Owens will lead the fifth forum in this series beginning at 6 p.m. on Nov. 19 in the Capstone Campus Room.
Composer Nico Muhly is on campus this week for the world premiere of a new concerto and a residency with the School of Music. Muhly rarely does residencies in the United States, but he’s excited about working directly with music students at USC.
For the second year in a row, a University of South Carolina education alumnus has been named National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Lucas Clamp, who earned three degrees from the College of Education, is principal of River Bluff High School in Lexington.
When Bob Johnston found himself out of work during the economic downtown of 2008, he hired on with a temp agency. He was sent to a logistics company in his hometown of Laurens where he did such a good job, the company offered him a salaried management position — his first. He knew he was going to need to up his game to succeed. Enter Palmetto College.

An early start
More than 40 middle school students visited the College of Pharmacy to envision what their future could be. Most of the students were female and African-American, part of the college’s efforts to attract underrepresented minorities to the profession.
The College of Education was awarded its largest grant in nearly 20 years to fund a statewide program to better engage families in South Carolina’s public schools.
Each fall, thousands of new students come to USC from out of state, and a lot of them later make a permanent home here, including Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin.
Making a big deal of things
College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management senior Parker Coggins has worked hard from her first day on campus to stand out from the crowd and build a reputation. Her efforts paid off recently with a big win: a $20,000 Scholarship of Excellence from The Statler Foundation.
Recovery starts here
South Carolina’s high stroke rate is not good news for the state, but it makes researcher Julius Fridriksson’s work particularly relevant.
