Remembering D-Day through film and stories

D-Day will be marked in early June with parades and commemorations along the beaches in northern France. University of South Carolina alumnus Wade Sellers will be there, too, on the independent filmmaker’s third trip to the French coast. This time, he’ll be screening the film he directed and edited, “Return to Normandy,” in the primetime slot at the Normandy-World War II International Film Festival.

UofSC investing to advance excellence in research, academic priorities

The University of South Carolina is working to build on the momentum from the past year to fulfill the promise made by President Harris Pastides in his State of the University Address to make Carolina a destination of choice for the next generation of state and national leaders.

Cold Case

Solving the cold case

Established about three years ago in the Children’s Law Center with funding from the Casey Family Programs, Cold Case goes to bat for S.C. children who have lingered in foster care for years. The goal is to help them to be adopted or to establish meaningful contact with a family member or adult friend who will be there for them down the road.


Reducing crime through reading

For three weeks each May, English education master’s students head to the Department of Justice's Birchwood High School to help youth improve their reading.

Full circle

For university President Harris Pastides, receiving the Ellis Island Medal of Honor is like coming full circle for the son of Greek immigrants who left their idyllic Mediterranean island home in search of better life for their children.
