Providing a transformative undergraduate experience


Give to Preston

Leah Edwards quote


For over 75 years, University of South Carolina students have called Preston College home. Thousands of residents made lasting memories in our hallways, and we welcome new members into our family each semester.

Preston Residential College, the only residential college in the state, is an unique living and learning community on USC’s campus. As our alumni and supporters know, Preston students have the opportunity to form long-lasting communities, interact with faculty beyond the classroom, and utilize and expand their creative and leadership abilities.

As we build upon our strong traditions, your investment in our work will have a meaningful impact on the hundreds of students who reside in our community each year. Your generous support helps to improve the scope of our programming and creates a solid foundation for student success through exciting and innovative residential learning projects.
