To the Incoming Class of 2024

To the Class of 2024,

I think I speak for everyone when I say, WOAH. You all have endured so much through your last semester of high school and the beginning of your summer.

Many of you have missed graduations and celebrations of other big milestones. Here at your Student Alumni Association, we do not want your accomplishments to go unnoticed. We want to congratulate all incoming Gamecocks on your recent achievements and cannot wait to welcome you all home this fall.

Despite a worldwide pandemic, the University of South Carolina will be home for each of you in such a short amount of time. And, although you may be worried about what your first year at South Carolina may look like, I write to tell you that no matter the obstacles, the Gamecock Family will be here to help each and every one of you. That dedication to each other and bond to our great University is what we mean when we say, “Forever to thee!”

We want you all to know that your Student Alumni Association has plenty of resources and events that will help you get active in the community despite the pandemic. Whether it be virtual sessions with experts or hopefully, football games in Willy B, the SAA will remain focused on strengthening tradition, building leadership skills, and connecting students with the alumni family. While you may be a student for just a short time, SAA will make sure you show your Gamecock pride for a lifetime!

Check back on our Instagram page soon for some updates about our spirit packs which will include exclusive gameday t-shirts, a rally towel and other great UofSC apparel! We look forward to seeing you all in the fall.

SPURS UP Gamecocks!
