WHILE YOU WERE HERE FALL 2010 – SPRING 2014
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
n a few weeks, thousands of USC students will graduate, capping — for most of them — four eventful years at Carolina. As freshmen, they watched the Gamecocks knock off then-No. 1 Alabama at Williams-Brice Stadium after camping out on the Horseshoe for ESPN’s College GameDay. And that was before Jadeveon Clowney signed with USC. As sophomores, things certainly got frenzied. In the fall, USC halted fraternity rush, and in the spring, the 2012 Republican primary drew loads of national attention. As juniors, they saw Clowney explode into legendary status with “The Hit.” And as seniors, their last semester was cut short by a pair of snowstorms that shut down the state. It certainly harkened back to the spring of their freshman year, which started late because of snow. As the graduating class prepares to leave campus, The Daily Gamecock is taking a look back the last four years at USC — what has happened and what’s changed. We’ve also compiled information you’ll want come graduation day, like who’s speaking and where to park. Congratulations to the class of 2014, and best of luck to you all!

MAJOR ATHLETIC EVENTS OVER THE PAST 4 YEARS
SECOND-STRAIGHT COLLEGE WORLD SERIES TITLE
COURTESY OF MCT CAMPUS
SPRING 2011 UPSET OVER ALABAMA
COURTESY OF MCT CAMPUS
On the diamond, the South Carolina baseball team completed a sweep of conference-rival Florida in the College World Series final to claim its second-straight national championship. In the series-clinching game, junior Michael Roth earned the win on the mound with 7 2/3 five-hit innings, and senior Scott Wingo drove in two runs on one hit.
In arguably the biggest win in the South Carolina football team’s history, the No. 19 Gamecocks upset the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide for the program’s first-ever win over a No. 1-ranked team. Junior quarterback Stephen Garcia tossed three touchdowns, two of which were hauled in by sophomore wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey to lead South Carolina to a 35-21 win over the Tide.
FIRST SEC EAST CHAMPIONSHIP
CLOWNEY COMMITS TO SOUTH CAROLINA
Thanks in part to the Gamecocks’ historic win over Alabama, the football team went 5-3 in the conference to earn the program’s only SEC East title. South Carolina would fall to the eventual national champions, Auburn, in the conference title game. The Gamecocks would go on to earn an invite to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl where they would come up just short against Florida State.
After South Carolina reached new heights during the 2010-11 season, the program made another stride in the right direction with the signing of No. 1 high school recruit in the nation, Jadeveon Clowney. The Rock Hill product recorded 162 tackles and 29.5 sacks in his senior year at South Pointe on his way to earning “Mr. Football” honors for the state of South Carolina.
FIRST 11-WIN SEASON The South Carolina football team continued its rise to prominence in the 2011-12 season, following an SEC East title-winning season with the school’s first-ever 11-win season. The Gamecocks went 11-2 overall, including a 6-2 record in the conference and a second-place finish in the SEC East. South Carolina would go on to defeat Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl to finish the season.

FRANK MARTIN HIRED
After four years at the helm, Darrin Horn was fired as head men’s basketball coach after the 2011-12 season, and South Carolina made a splash with the hiring of Frank Martin to fill the vacancy. The former Kansas State head man led the Wildcats to four NCAA tournament appearances in five seasons, including a trip to the Elite Eight in 2010, before coming to Columbia.
In the wake of the 201112 football season, South Carolina was slapped with several penalties by the NCAA for failing to monitor the athletic program. As a result, the program lost six football scholarships and a number of its allotted official recruiting visits. The sanctions didn’t hurt the program in the longrun, however, as the team would continue to build on its success.
THIRD-STRAIGHT COLLEGE WORLD SERIES After winning back-to-back national championships in 2010 and 2011, South Carolina reached college baseball’s highest point again in 2012. However, the Gamecocks were not able to capture their thirdconsecutive national title after falling in two games to the Arizona Wildcats. Arizona scored three runs in the ninth inning of the final game to clinch the title.

SPRING 2013 TANNER NAMED ATHLETICS DIRECTOR
COURTESY OF MCT CAMPUS
In a 2013 Outback Bowl win over Michigan, South Carolina completed its second-straight 11-win season and sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney earned nationwide fame for his vicious hit on Wolverine runningback Vincent Smith to turn the tide of the game. On the offensive side, junior Connor Shaw and sophomore Dylan Thompson provided a dual-threat at quarterback, throwing for a combined 341 yards and four touchdowns on the day.
After leading the South Carolina baseball team to three-straight College World Series finals as head coach, Ray Tanner traded in his jersey for a suit on July 13, 2012, when it was announced he would take over as athletics director. Associate head coach Chad Holbrook would go on to move into the head coaching role to replace Tanner.
For the first time since 2010, ESPN’s College GameDay came to USC’s Horseshoe prior to a critical clash with No. 5 Georgia. No. 6 South Carolina would go on to dismantle the Bulldogs by a final score of 35-7. Junior running back Marcus Lattimore went for 110 yards and a touchdown in the win, and junior quarterback Connor Shaw gained 162 yards through the air to go with two scores.
Despite earning a 38-35 win over Tennessee, South Carolina suffered a major loss on October 27, 2012, when junior tailback Marcus Lattimore suffered a torn ACL in what would be his last game as a Gamecock. Two days later, the student body held a rally to support Lattimore in his recovery, and on December 12, he announced his decision to enter the NFL Draft.
CLEMSON GETS FIVE-PEATED In the annual battle of the Palmetto State between South Carolina and Clemson, the Gamecocks claimed the 2013 meeting to earn a fifth-straight win over the Tigers. In South Carolina’s 31-17 victory, the team scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away and extend the Gamecocks’ longest-ever streak over Clemson.
JEFFREY DAVIS | THE DAILY GAMECOCK
FALL 2013 UPSET OVER KENTUCKY Despite spending the entire season near the bottom of the SEC, the South Carolina men’s basketball team was able to secure the first statement win of head coach Frank Martin’s tenure with a 72-67 victory over No. 17 Kentucky. Senior guard Brenton Williams scored 24 points in the win and remained on the floor after the game to celebrate with USC students after they stormed the court.
SPRING 2014 WOMEN’S BASKETBALL EARNS NO. 1 SEED The 2013-14 season was a year of firsts for the South Carolina women’s basketball team. The Gamecocks went 29-5 overall with the program’s first-ever undefeated home record — 16-0. South Carolina’s 14-2 conference record earned the team its first regular-season SEC title, and the team would go on receive its first No. 1 seed in the women’s NCAA tournament.
WILSON STAYS HOME
HANNAH CLEAVELAND | THE DAILY GAMECOCK
Following the South Carolina women’s basketball team’s historic 2013-14 season, the rich got richer when Hopkins native A’ja Wilson decided to play her college basketball down the road at Colonial Life Arena. Wilson is the first No. 1 recruit to ever sign on with the women’s basketball program. She will join three other fivestar recruits from South Carolina’s signing class.

Snow storms Columbia was a winter wonderland for a few days this semester, twice shutting down campus and most of the city. Hundreds of students flung snowballs across the Horseshoe around midnight, and snowmen popped up all over campus. Several parts of the state lost power for days at a time.
Martha Childress First-year business student Martha Childress was struck by a stray bullet while in Five Points, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. The incident sparked an outcry from the community and prompted an ongoing debate about safety in Five Points.

Only one surface parking lot, at the corner of Blossom and Lincoln streets, is open for general parking. Another lot, at Greene and Gadsden streets, is open for handicap parking. That’s why USC is recommending
that people park in garages elsewhere on campus. Shuttles will go from parking garages around campus to the Colonial Life Arena. Buses will start running at 10:30 a.m. on Friday and 7:30 a.m. on Saturday.

DIPLOMA INFORMATION Remember turning in your graduation application this semester? That doesn’t mean you’ll get a diploma at commencement (don’t worry — you’ll still get one). It’ll likely take a few months before you actually get a diploma in the mail. Here’s why:
DIPLOMA PROCESS 1. 2. 3. 4. 5..
Your department has 30 days to approve your application. The university registrar processes and double-checks the application. The information is sent to the printer. A week later, they’re sent to USC. The printed diplomas are checked by hand and stuffed into envelopes, which can take up to three months. The diplomas are mailed to graduates.
TASSELS You probably know about moving the tassel on your mortarboard to the left when you graduate. But do you know what the colors of those tassels mean? Each field of study has its own color. They havenâ€™t changed much since the 16th century, and they were formalized in 1895.
TASSEL COLOR MEANINGS White arts, letters and humanities Drab accountancy, business and commerce Light blue education Orange engineering Brown fine arts Crimson journalism Purple law Lemon library science Green medicine Pink music Apricot nursing Olive green pharmacy Dark blue philosophy Sage green physical education Teal physical therapy Salmon pink public health Peacock blue public service Golden yellow science Cream social science Citron social work

So for nearly two decades, Michelle has taken one course a semester as an employee at USC, not so much for herself but for her kids. Today, her children are college-educated, and this spring Michelle completes her own journey, one leading across the stage to a diploma inscribed with her name.
