    The Trojan Family is excited to welcome you to campus for Base Camp Orientation. To provide the best possible experience and great hospitality to all attendees, the following changes have been made to our Base Camp sessions:
    • All students will be required to register for a Base Camp session.

    • Each student will be limited to two guests for their Base Camp session.

    • All registrations will serve as an acknowledgement and agreement to the Safety and Acknowledgement of Risk form.

    • Students will be able to review their schedules at Base Camp.

    If you have any questions about this information, please contact Student Involvement at or via phone at (864) 622-6029.
    We cannot wait to see you on campus for Base Camp and are even more excited you are joining the Trojan Family.
