Sophomore September is a month long program dedicated to helping second-year students adjust to their second year at USC and feel welcomed and connected. Sophomore September will consist of six events that involve food, fun, prizes, and sharing of resources and discussion key to the second year at Carolina. Events are designed for second-year students at USC but are open to all students. Students who attend five events will win a free t-shirt. Students who attend all six events will win a t-shirt and another great prize! Only sophomore students are eligible to win prizes.
Sophomore students can get a Sophomore September passport at any of the first three events. Pick up a passport and have it signed by a member of the OSE staff at each event. For the study abroad fair and the CareerFest there are special instructions for getting attendance, please see below.
