Welcome Letter

Greetings Bulldogs,

On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, we are delighted to welcome you to South Carolina State University, home of the bulldogs! You have made an excellent choice to attend South Carolina State and are on your way to a great collegiate experience full of educational opportunity and personal growth.

First and foremost, students’ well-being is our highest priority and it is our desire to assist in helping you realize your goals and aspirations. Because students are at the heart of what we do, we pride ourselves in creating a welcoming and inclusive campus community and encourage you to take advantage of the many programs and resources available. From social activities, to health care; from leadership opportunities to career fairs, we are committed to promoting a student-centered campus environment that embraces academic excellence, while fostering the social, professional, psychological and personal development of the “whole” student.

As you embark on your academic and social activities for the upcoming school year, I encourage you to remain committed to our core values of access, opportunity, integrity, excellence and respect. The Student Affairs staff and I look forward to working with you throughout this school year and others to follow.
