Volunteer Spotlight: Ryan Freiburger

young alumni

By: Haven Spanyer

Ryan Freiburger is a 2015 graduate of the University of South Carolina.  He currently serves on the UofSC Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Council.

During his time at South Carolina, Ryan studied accounting and finance.  Outside of the classroom, Ryan was on the Men’s Soccer team for the 2011–2014 seasons.


Now as an alumnus, Ryan works as a Financial Reporting Officer at First Community Bank.


Ryan chose to stay involved with his alma mater by serving on the Young Alumni Council (YAC).  In his role with YAC, he serves as the Events Committee Chair.  As Events Committee Chair, Ryan helps plan and implement events for UofSC young alumni, such as the council’s annual Fall Band Party.


“Both continued and new connections to UofSC graduates has had a huge impact on me professionally and personally.  I wanted to be a part of an organization focused on helping others make connections like the ones that have helped me.”


There are so many reasons why the University of South Carolina is special to Ryan.


“My wife and I are both South Carolina graduates- we got engaged on the Horseshoe.  I made lifelong friends, and I got to live out my dream of playing soccer for South Carolina.”
