Garnet Circle

Four Decades of Tradition

Garnet Circle exists to foster relationships between the University of South Carolina students and members of the Alumni Association. Members of Garnet Circle value all of South Carolina's rich traditions and strive to continue them each year.

Not only does Garnet Circle uphold valued traditions, but they also create new traditions on campus. By putting on events for both students and alumni, Garnet Circle helps build relationships among generations of Gamecocks and keeps UofSC traditions alive.

Garnet Circle governs The Student Network; UofSC's student-alumni association. The Student Network serves to build leadership through Garnet Circle, engage students through dynamic events, and prepare our graduates for their careers. With about 4,000 members, the Student Network is South Carolina's largest student organization and serves as a community for thousands of students who walk through our gates.

Mission and Vision

As South Carolina's official Student Alumni Association, Garnet Circle and the Student Network strive to connect students with alumni, build a stronger campus community, prepare students for their careers, and develop the next generation of leaders.

We envision a University where there is a strong and consistent thread between a student's first day at orientation through their final days on campus.
