Student Life


College is more than books and classes; it’s about self-discovery, intellectual exploration, and enhancing social responsibility.


USC Sumter exposes you to activities and programs that are fun, interactive, entertaining, and culturally enriching. Whatever your interest: music, theater, sports, or billiards, we have an avenue for you to express yourself while reaching your goals.

 USC Connect is a long term initiative at USC Columbia and the Regional Campuses (Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Sumter, Union) to support all students in making the most of their education




The Carolina Card is designed to cover all of your needs as a student. Not only do you use it as your student ID for entrance to events, libray usage, etc, you can also use it for CarolinaCash. You can put money on the card for use in the Bookstore, Fire Ant cafe, Library and certain vending machines.

Student Union Building

As a small campus, our students get to know each other in class and in our Student Union. With the opportunity to join a variety of clubs, participate in school-sponsored trips, play on-campus sports, and accept leadership roles on campus, our students find that USC Sumter is truly a “home away from home.”
