the Student Affairs homepage and welcome to USC Lancaster! We
are very excited that you have chosen USCL as your new “college
home” and you will find that in addition to our great
academic programs, USC Lancaster has a wide variety of co-curricular
activities, from sports to clubs to special programs, that
will both enrich and enhance your collegiate experience.
We strongly encourage all students to GET INVOLVED with
campus events. Studies show that students who participate
in co-curricular activities are, on the whole, more successful
in their academic careers. At USC Lancaster, students enjoy
a variety of activities geared to facilitate their academic and
personal development and enrich their lives in a variety of ways.
Similarly, students will find a variety of leadership and service
opportunities with clubs
and organizations. These are great outlets for those who wish
to get more involved in the campus and community.
Some students also choose to participate in USC Lancaster Travel
Study Program -- short term travel experiences where they
earn credit and see places most people only read about. In recent
years, USC Lancaster students have traveled to Italy, France,
Spain, Great Britain, Mexico, Greece, China and Italy, as well
as domestic trips to New Orleans. Other exciting trips are currently
being planned for the coming year, including a venture which
will re-trace the steps of Lewis and Clark as they explored what
was then the western wilderness of the young United States.
Athletics at USCL. USCL now has teams competing in Region

bring much excitement to the campus and the community, so please
come out and cheer on our teams during both Fall and Spring semesters!
As USC Lancaster grows so too will Student Affairs. Get involved

Don’t forget that while you are first and foremost a student,
there is more to the college experience than simply what goes on
in the classroom. What you get out of college largely depends
on how much you put into it, and we know that you will find that
by getting involved, your experience will be much more enjoyable
and rewarding, while at the same time, you will help USCL continue
to grow and develop into an even stronger and better campus.
