2017 Parents Weekend Information
How Can I Participate?
The Carolina Rugby Foundation wishes to extend an invitation to our parents to join us for Parents Weekend this fall. This is a great time to visit campus to see your son’s college home! Many fun social and educational events are planned for the weekend so your family can have a great time together and learn more about the University of South Carolina.
On Friday, Oct. 6th, the Foundation will be sponsoring a 'Meet & Greet' reception from 5:30 - 6:30pm, providing players and their families with an informal networking opportunity among fellow teammates, the coaching staff, Foundation board members, and representatives from the USC Development Office of Gift Planning.
On Saturday, Oct. 7th, the Foundation will be sponsoring a pre-game tailgate from 12:00pm - 4:00pm before heading in to Williams-Brice Stadium to watch the Gamecocks take on the Razorbacks of Arkansas.
