South Carolina State University alumni arrived on campus and moved into their dorm rooms for the weekend as the opening phases of 18th Annual South Carolina State University National Alumni Convention took shape on Thursday.
Alumni who registered for the convention and opted to stay on campus made themselves at home in Andrew Hugine Suites, a new $42 million, 755-bed student apartment-style housing complex.
For some attendees of the event, moving into dorms has sparked memories.
"I'm so happy to be here," said 1954 graduate Josephine Evans. "I am proud of my institution. ...I think all the time how different things would have been had we had this in 1954."
This year's convention is hosted by the Orangeburg County Alumni Chapter under the theme "Our University, Our Responsibility." Registration for the convention is still available on the S.C. State University National Alumni Association Web site at www.scsunaa.org.
