Student Organizations and Activities
USCU encourages the formation of and participation in a wide variety of student organizations and activities. Co-curricular activities can be related to specific academic topics and so directly support classroom learning, or they can more broadly promote intellectual, social, or physical development. You will learn more about your world, yourself, and about others. You will become a stronger leader, colleague, and friend.
Some of the student organizations that are active now or have been active in the past are listed below. If you would like to join one of these groups, or if you would like to start a new club, contact the Student Affairs Office. Your active participation in the clubs and other organizations at USC Union will greatly enhance your collegiate experience.
Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA) is composed of all registered undergraduate students of the University of South Carolina Union. Upon payment of semester fees, students are automatically considered members of this organization. Student Government Association officers are elected by the student body; these officers include a president, vice president, and secretary-treasurer. These officers, together with the senators, comprise the governing council of the SGA.
The purpose of the SGA is to represent the student body both academically and socially. The SGA schedules and directs activities. Any co-curricular activity of interest to students can be organized within the framework of the SGA.
MWOM/AAA. The MWOM/AAA (Men and Women on a Mission/African American Association) are organizations that try to empower all students, and teach leadership skills wherever possible, with a special focus on minority and women.
Literary Club."The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." The Literary Club has many focuses on keeping the art of reading and writing alive. We have a few questions in mind for students looking to be involved: 1) Do you enjoy reading. 2) Do you need help with reading comprehension or understanding lyrical reads? 3) Do you enjoy writing and want some support for writing for fun? If so, the Literary Club wants you to be involved in helping to keep literature a focus for the future.
National Club Baseball Association. The University of South Carolina Union is in the District IV East Division. This division annually provides more than 4,500 college students with the chance to continue their competitive baseball careers and contend for a true national championship. Other teams in the District IV East Division are Craven Community College, Duke University, Davidson College, East Carolina University, and the University of North Carolina Wilmington. USC Union will play approximately 15 regular season games, with a chance at post season play, and the NCBA National Championship.
If you want an activity that you don't see here, let us know. If the interest is there, we want to find a way to do it.
Intramural and Activity Program
The intramural and activity program provides USC Union students with a variety of extracurricular activities. These give students an opportunity to interact with classmates and/or students from other colleges. A student programming officer is responsible for scheduling and directing intramural and activity programs.
Popular on-campus intramural events include basketball, volleyball, flag football, and softball. USC Union also uses off-campus facilities to field softball teams in University tournaments (softball and basketball) and local leagues. Other sports are considered, depending on student interest.
