Kirsta Thomson from the Kingman Academy High School is heading to the University of South Carolina.

“It’s official 🦈 USCB D2 NCAA school in South Carolina. Thank you to amazing coaches and teachers for getting her to this level in such a short time. Thank you to USCB Men’s and Women’s Golf for this amazing opportunity ⛳️” said proud parents Stacy and Terry Thomson.

THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA BEAUFORT is a “new institution,” dating back to 1795 when the South Carolina General Assembly voted to provide for a College in Beaufort. That college became a two-year regional campus of the University of South Carolina system in 1959, but soon it was clear that the people of the southern Lowcountry needed and deserved more. With no four-year baccalaureate degree-granting institution in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, or Colleton Counties, USCB won its hard-fought petition to become a full four-year comprehensive university in 2004. In 1959, the university enrolled 82 students. From 2005 to 2017, it was the fifth fastest-growing public university in the US according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. USCB remains in the top ten – with more than 2,000 students on three vibrant campuses: Bluffton, Beaufort, and Hilton Head Island.


THE MISSION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA BEAUFORT is to respond to regional needs, draw upon regional strengths, and prepare graduates to contribute locally, nationally, and internationally with its focus on teaching, research, and service. The curriculum promotes knowledge acquisition and the intellectual dispositions and skills that encourage depth of understanding and individual accountability. The culture embraces equity, inclusion, accessibility, and understanding with intentionality. USCB proudly serves a diverse population of students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, community partners, and friends in the southern Lowcountry.
