Student Alumni Council
USC Upstate students are “alumni in training,” and the alumni office has launched the Student Alumni Council to initiate their interest in the Alumni Association.
The Alumni Association and the Division of Student Affairs has initiated Finish Up, a new professionalism initiative designed to assist our upperclassmen as they prepare to enter the work force. Finish Up focuses on a variety of critical protocol topics such as:
- First Impressions: Lasting Impressions
- Appropriate Attire: Dress for Success
- The Business Dinner and Event Protocol
- The Who, What, When, Where, Why, & How of Etiquette and Protocol
Expanding the availability of scholarships is a top priority at USC Upstate. Maintaining and growing the quality and diversity of our student body can happen only through the contributions of our alumni and friends.
