USC’s annual Homecoming week is for past, present, and future Gamecocks to come together and celebrate all things garnet and black!

Gamecocks are known for showing school spirit all year, but Homecoming week is when we are prouder than ever! The celebration also includes an an action-packed weekend of alumni events, too.
