Please submit event proposals for inclusion in the 2016 Carolina Welcome program. Carolina Welcome is a university-wide initiative to welcome new and returning students to campus each fall. The week represents a set of experiences that provide students with an intentional and meaningful introduction to the University of South Carolina and prepare them for a successful start to the semester. The Russell House University Union provides leadership in planning, marketing and coordinating Carolina Welcome.
Please note that the schedule for move-in and Carolina Welcome for Fall 2016 in shorter than in past years. The official University of South Carolina move-in is Sunday, Aug. 14 and Monday, Aug. 15. The first day of class is Thursday, Aug. 18. Carolina Welcome ends on Sunday, Aug. 21.
Event proposals will be reviewed and confirmed for inclusion in Carolina Welcome through Friday, July 29, according to their alignment with the goals of Carolina Welcome; however, the deadline to submit an event proposal for confirmation in time to promote your event during New Student Orientation is Friday, May 27.
