As we continue that tradition, you will be provided with a nurturing living and learning environment that will foster your success.
At the University, we pride ourselves on transforming the lives and minds of our students by ensuring success through orientation to graduation and beyond. It is important that you take advantage of the education, services and resources that are available to you as they all work together to help you build success. Once you graduate, you will be well prepared to positively impact society. Therefore, you must take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to you. We face our greatest challenges of adjusting to a rapidly changing global economy while still providing for careers that have not yet been imagined. As such, your competitive edge in education becomes even more critical.
As you begin the next phase of your life it is very important that you establish and accomplish goals. We are your family away from home and we are here to provide the necessary support and assistance you will need to succeed. We have a highly qualified faculty and staff who serve as excellent role models and mentors dedicated to your success.
The South Carolina State University family is delighted to have you as our student and I am honored to serve as your president. I have the utmost confidence in your ability to live up to and beyond the expectations that we all have for you. Congratulations on the beginning of your college experience.
