The Real About Careers, Adulting + Life After UofSC

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Harpers College-Gressette Room


PluggedIn is a panel-style networking event targeted at minority students at the University of South Carolina. Each year we gather young alumni who are successfully navigating life post-graduation to share their stories and offer real career/life advice students don't receive in the classroom. Since 2016, PluggedIn has made phenomenal strides. The event has brought over 200 students of color together, sparked mentor/mentee relationships, and motivated past panelists to start their own passion projects. Most importantly, it has shown students that they don’t have to struggle alone — a message that is especially important in communities of color, where mental health, depression and anxiety are often taboo.


2019 Panelists: Taverious Davis, Shanice Joyner, Rodrick Williams, Joelle Griffith, Rashae Bey and Keith Sullivan
