Wondering how you can give back?

The Office of Alumni Relations is always happy to discuss unique ways to help USCA alumni show their appreciation for the school that means so much to all of us. Whether through traditional monetary donations, volunteering your time to help out on campus, coming out to cheer on a Pacer athletic team, watching a play at the Etherredge Center, or viewing the stars at the DuPont Planetarium, every alumnus and alumna can make a difference!

Below are a few of the ways you can support the University through your time, experience or resources. Some of these ideas require very little time or effort, but can bring tremendous benefit to our alma mater. You can make a difference!

Student Involvement

  • Help recruit future USC Aiken students, and encourage a prospective student to visit campus.
  • Encourage your company/organization to participate in Career Fairs, provide internships and hire USC Aiken students and graduates.
