After the historic flooding that occurred in South Carolina this past month, Homecoming took on a new meaning the week of October 11-17th as our University came together to showcase not only the pride in our University but the resilience of our city and state after a tragedy hit home for all of us. Some events were tailored to provide additional aid to flood victims and to allow essential personnel and first responders to work where they were needed more. Nevertheless, our University took the changes in stride and showed that there’s no place like Carolina and there’s no event that brings together the University of South Carolina students and organizations quite like Homecoming Week!
This year’s theme was the Wizard of Oz with a USC twist of “There’s No Place Like Carolina” and included some of our favorite events such as Spurs and Struts dance competition, Float building parade, Showcase, and the Homecoming football game against Vanderbilt to cap off the week. Our sisters loved being paired with the brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha and attending all of the events that our University’s Homecoming Committee put on for us!
