Life Skills

The Athletics Department is dedicated to developing the total student-athlete. We provide programs for each year of the student-athlete's time at South Carolina.

Consequences for Your Actions: a seminar for incoming student-athletes during Fall Orientation that encourages responsibility and mature behavior among our student-athletes.

Etiquette Dinner: designed for sophomores in preparation for upcoming internships and job-hunting skills in their junior and senior years. We teach table manners and etiquette appropriate for interview situations. It is an interactive dinner where you learn as you are dining in a formal dinner setting.

Dress for Success: designed for junior status student-athletes in preparation for special events, awards ceremonies, interviews, and other formal occasions. Professional retailers teach a separate program for men and women, which includes demonstrations and tips on personal presentation and building a proper wardrobe.

Networking Seminar: South Carolina Lettermen and members of our Career Network assist the departmental staff in training our student-athletes with the skills needed to begin their professional careers. These seminars, designed for senior status student-athletes, include topics such as interviewing, resume and cover letter writing, networking skills, dress and presentation.
