Facts

  • Originally founded as South Carolina College on December 19, 1801.
  • During the American Civil War, the university would close its doors and then reopen in 1866.
  • During Reconstruction following the Civil War, this was the only Southern university to admit African-Americans. However, this would change by 1880, when the school would reopen as a whites-only agricultural college.
  • On September 11, 1963, African-Americans were finally allowed to enroll at the university following a court order.
  • In 1906, the institution was rechartered and became known as the University of South Carolina.
  • This is the largest campus of the University of South Carolina system with an enrollment of over 35,000 students in one of 350 undergraduate and graduate courses of study.
  • The university encompasses 155 separate facilities on 358 acres to the southeast of downtown Columbia.
  • The original portion of the campus, called the Horseshoe, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1970.
