Student Life

Rocktoberfest StudentsGet involved on campus and make your experience at the University of South Carolina Upstate even more memorable!

The Office of Student Life provides programs and resources to the student body and the wider University community with the belief that learning takes place in all experiences, not just in the classroom. We are dedicated to creating meaningful, co-curricular campus activities for students at USC Upstate, with over 80 student organizations that strive to instill a sense of community, develop leadership skills, increase appreciation of diversity, and develop character. Experiences and connections with these organizations benefit students far beyond campus into their personal and professional lives.

Winterblast StudentsFrom the student newspaper to Greek life, there’s something for every interest in the diverse student body at USC Upstate. The Office of Student Life works in active partnership with students, faculty, and staff to promote opportunities for learning, involvement, leadership, community building, and creative expression and provide students with unforgettable, enjoyable university experiences.
