News for College Counselors February 2018
Scholarship Names Change
We’ve recently renamed several of our scholarships that we award to incoming freshmen. All award amounts remain the same. By mid-March, scholarship offers will be posted to students’ admissions portal for those that qualify. A complete list of general university scholarships is posted on our website (old names are marked in parenthesis).
Admitted Student Receptions
Admitted Student Receptions are a great place to meet new friends, catch up with old ones, or even find a roommate. Our upcoming reception locations include:
February 22, Columbia, MD
February 25, Cincinnati, OH
March 4, Fairfield, CT
March 6, Jacksonville, FL
March 8, Nashville, TN
Admitted students in these regional areas will receive an invitation with further details and registration instructions. For more information, please contact your local representative.
You’ve seen the “#UofSCYES!” campaign of students capturing and posting their “YES!” moment. Now, admitted Honors students can post their special “YES!” moment to celebrate acceptance into the South Carolina Honors College, too. To share in the excitement, students may simply upload a photo with their “YOU’RE IN!” envelope using #UofSCHonors. More students are about to have that opportunity. We’re finishing up our review and will be sending final honors decisions within the next couple of weeks. It’s going to be another competitive year!ction
Meet Cocky on Your Next Visit
Students have a new place to meet our beloved mascot when they visit and so do you. A life-size replica of Cocky has been cast in bronze and is the perfect place for a photo op to commemorate a trip to the University of South Carolina campus. The statue, made possible through private funds, is located off Greene Street in front of Davis College near the Melton Observatory.
