CELEBRATING 175 YEARS

Gamecocks, you are the reason we are celebrating 175 years of history together. The lifelong devotion of University of South Carolina alumni to their alma mater is the passion that powers what your Alumni Association does for all Gamecocks – past, present and future.

Your membership in the Alumni Association supports three unique scholarship opportunities for incoming freshmen, more than 600 events per year for the global Gamecock community, and almost 50 regional clubs and affinity groups providing connection and service in regions around the world. By giving back, you empower us to strengthen our impact and secure our legacy as Gamecocks.

Watch and read more below about some of our historic milestones since 1846, when the first group of South Carolina graduates established an alumni network, and learn how today’s Alumni Association programs give us so many ways to be Proud to Be A Gamecock!

Areas of Support

ALUMNI CLUBS AND AFFINITY GROUPS

Our alumni affinity groups and nearly 50 alumni clubs keep Gamecocks everywhere connected, and over the next three years, we want to increase the number of these groups by 50 percent.

PASTIDES ALUMNI CENTER

The Pastides Alumni Center is a crown jewel of the campus and destination of choice for events in the Midlands.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & MENTORING

We want to expand the networking and mentoring opportunities we provide to help alumni excel in their careers, through programming like our newly formed UofSC Mentorship Hub.

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORT

Over the next decade, we want to triple our student scholarship giving to $1 million.

We know there are financial roadblocks that prevent talented students from pursuing their dream of a UofSC degree. Your support of scholarships helps us open the doors to deserving future Gamecocks.
