Garnet Circle Student Alumni Council is the leadership organization sponsored by the Carolina Alumni Association. The organization exists to foster relationships between the students of the University of South Carolina and its alumni.
Garnet Circle's purpose is to promote the University of South Carolina to future students, and assist the Carolina Alumni Association with programs and events that promote positive feelings about the University among both students and alumni. The council also serves as the Official Ring ambassadors and sponsors the Ring Ceremony held every fall and spring.
The Official Ring ceremony is sponsored by the Garnet Circle Student Alumni Council and is held each fall and spring on the Horseshoe. Whether you're a Carolina alumnus or a student, you'll find this ring a precious keepsake representing your commitment to Carolina.
