A Welcome Message from the Veterans Alumni Council

veteran alumni


Welcome to the University of South Carolina’s Veteran Family.

Whether you are new to the UofSC veteran family or a seasoned member, we are glad you joined us and thank you for your service.  The Veteran’s Alumni Council was founded in 2016 by a group of Gamecock veterans to unite and organize veteran alumni of the university, current student veterans and friends into a welded community to pursue issues concerning the Gamecock veteran community.  Since our inception, VAC has supported and advocated for our entire military-affiliated population by creating the VAC Salute to Service scholarship, hosting “Welcome to Campus” events and establishing graduation events to honor and congratulate those who are graduating and transitioning into their next mission in life.

Prior to the new normal of social distancing, we partnered with regional Alumni Association clubs for happy hours and other events.  VAC participated in and hosted multiple events during Veterans Week, including the Annual Veterans Breakfast, a 5K run and the Military Appreciation Football Game.

As we move forward, please join us for virtual networking opportunities, discussion panels and other activities. We will continue to provide mentorship, professional development and general engagement opportunities for all military-affiliated students at UofSC. Keep an eye on your email and our social media channels (@UofSCVAC) for online events and updates on in-person activities. 

If you have any suggestions or ideas for events, please contact us at [email protected].

Again, welcome to the South Carolina Veteran Family. We look forward to seeing you at events.


Forever to Thee,


Veteran Alumni Council
