A Stronger USC, A Stronger South Carolina

Carolina Day

On Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019, UofSC alumni and South Carolinians will come together in a concentrated effort to support higher education. But that's just the beginning. Learn how you can continue to spotlight our university's vital role in fostering both our state's and citizens' economic well-being.

Why Carolina Day Matters

Did you know state policymakers have made a conscious decision over the past 10 years to shift the burden of paying for higher education from the state to students and their families? The dramatic cuts of higher education funding made during the Great Recession have yet to be restored — despite broad economic recovery


Help Us Share Carolina's Story

Our legislators must know the many ways Carolina benefits the people, communities and industries of S.C. On Carolina Day each year, we invite the community to join us in advocating for the university's ideals and mission to make higher education accessible for future generations. In fact, with the state's continued depletion of higher education funding opportunities, your voice and continued support is more than ever.


How to Advocate on Carolina Day (... and beyond!)


Follow and amplify #UofSCImpact on social media.

Add the official Carolina Day hashtag (#UofSCImpact) to any social media posts or online content you create related to supporting UofSC. Make sure your legislator knows the impact Carolina has had on you or your family.


Login to Facebook and Twitter anywhere you are.

Log in to your social channels from your home or office, and join the conversation on #UofSCImpact. Let your followers know why you support UofSC.

Take a Stand for Carolina

Whether you'd like to support Carolina digitally on social media or visit the Alumni Center in person, your support matters. Together, we can make a difference for higher education funding that will make education more affordable, more meaningful and more impactful for a greater number of South Carolinians.
