With football season and hearty tailgating food right around the corner, faculty, staff and students may not be thinking about the healthiest foods. But USC’s nutrition experts can help anyone find the right balance. We caught up with Lisa Money and Sarah Walsh, USC’s registered dietitians, to find out how nutrition consultations work and how they are helping Carolina get healthy.  


In high school Sarah Ferraro didn’t imagine herself at USC. A few years later, she says she can’t picture herself anywhere else. Carolina is her home.

Alexis Pryor was thrilled to be standing in the Koger Center one morning this summer, ready to participate in University of South Carolina orientation session for transfer students.

The incoming sophomore had actually been on the USC campus for a year, living in the Roost residence hall, eating meals in Carolina Dining facilities – and taking classes at Midlands Technical College’s Airport campus.
