In May 2013 the Association formally announced plans for the University’s first Alumni Center and shared initial design concepts with the public. The project began in November 2013 and construction completed in the Spring of 2015. Located in the heart of the Vista, the state-of-the-art, technologically advanced and privately-funded USC Alumni Center is home to My Carolina Alumni Association.
About the USC Alumni Center
The USC Alumni Center has 30,000 square feet of beautifully created event space. It is the backdrop to small training sessions and cocktail parties to large conferences and breathtaking weddings. In addition to the stunning grand staircase and spacious main ballroom, the USC Alumni Center gates welcome alumni home to the university much like the gates of the Horseshoe permits an entrance to the heart of the university for students and graduates alike.
Managed by My Carolina Alumni Association staff and catered by Southern Way, guests at the USC Alumni Center get unparalleled hospitality services to assist with every event detail. Special rental pricing is available to My Carolina life members, annual members, USC campus partners and non-profits.
