LAURENS — Starting January 13, students will have a fresh new location for classes offered by the University of South Carolina Union at Laurens. As the Higher Education Center closed its doors on December 20 for the holidays, courses offered at that location came to an end.
USC Union at Laurens campus will open in January at the Oaks Shopping Plaza on North Harper Street in Laurens. The new facility will consist of classrooms, office space for faculty and staff and a library. It is a prime location for great visibility in the community and will allow expansion to the neighboring space as USC Union continues to grow.
With USCU students have opportunities to complete one of our Associate or Baccalaureate Degree programs without leaving the community where they live or work. It has been a crucial location for individuals wanting to further their education, while at the same time raising their family or working full time.
USC Union at Laurens offers general education classes, dual-credit course work for high school juniors and seniors, and upper level courses for the Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership and the Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies. USCU also advises and assists students in completing seven fully online Bachelor’s Degrees through Palmetto College: business administration, criminal justice, elementary education, human services, liberal studies, organizational leadership and RN-BSN Nursing.
The new USC Laurens phone number will be 864-681-1456 effective next Friday. One may still use the old number and the calls will be forwarded.
