Eddie Thomson began his career in 1990 working as a Postal Agent for the University of South Carolina. During his time with the Postal Service, he personally touched the lives of innumerable students and employees through coordination of their daily services. After nine years with the Postal Service, Eddie spent four years working for the University of South Carolina's Department of Distance Education and Instructional Support. As a Student Services Manager, he was responsible for all front-line student services associated with course delivery through satellite and video.

It was not until a position opened in University Housing that Eddie decided to try working with students outside of the virtual classroom. He accepted the position as Senior Assignment Coordinator in 2004. He is responsible for working with a myriad of students and staff to provide housing for over 7,000 students annually. Satisfied students, happy and loyal parents and a great living and learning environment: that's the reputation of employees like Mr. Eddie Thomson.
