J-Week to Kick Off Fall Semester


JSU students usher in a new academic year during J-Week.

The much anticipated Fall 2020 semester is finally here and, even though the COVID-19 pandemic is keeping Gamecocks physically distanced, that doesn’t mean we can’t socially connect. The Division of Student Affairs, in partnership with the Student Government Association, has planned a week of events that will allow the JSU family to come together safely.

All students are invited to the following free J-Week events:

Saturday, August 15
