Carolinian Creed & Diversity Day Contest

Participate in our annual Carolinian Creed & Diversity Day Contest. This year’s Creed & Diversity Day contest challenges students to create a submission through a variety of mediums regarding the tenets of the Carolinian Creed. Submissions should answer the question “What does the Creed mean to me?” The submission should address the presence, or absence, of the Creed’s values on campus. The aim of this project should be to challenge the Carolina Community and to appeal to the necessity of the Carolinian Creed’s values in our community.

More information about contest rules are available on the Creed website. Submissions are due to the Office of Student Conduct via the Creed website by October 22nd at 5pm. The first place prize is a $500 scholarship from Mac Gray solutions.

Creed on Campus

We know that everyday small random acts of kindness are happening here on USC’s campus. Let the Office of Student Conduct recognize you for enhancing and contributing positively to the Carolina Community. Share your experiences through this online form. Congratulations to our Creed Champions for 2014, First year student Hayley Geis and Nathan Strong, Director of Organizational and Professional Development.

Reporting Arrests

It is the responsibility of all university students to report to the office of student conduct if they have been arrested. According to our policy, arrests by law enforcement agencies outside of USC’s Division of Law Enforcement and Safety must be reported by the student to the Office of Student Conduct within 72 hours of arrest.


If you have been sanctioned to attend the Carolina Awareness on Alcohol Policies and Safety class, you much complete the pre-assessment prior to your workshop date. For further information visit the CAAPS section of our website or e-mail your Conduct Administrator.
