Applications open for Community Ambassadors!

Off-Campus Students Services (OCSS) at the University of South Carolina will employ students to serve as Community Ambassadors (CAs) to help carry out daily duties and communications, as well as special events hosted by the office. This opportunity should be seen as not only employment, but also one where leadership is extremely important. The Community Ambassador Program is a group of student leaders living off campus that advocate for their fellow off-campus peers. CAs will be selected, trained, supported, and supervised by OCSS.

Student Legal Services recently hosted a webinar on what to look for in a lease, knowing your rights and responsibilities as a tenant, and dealing with your landlord.
