Multimedia at UofSC

These are some videos I’ve made while working at USC.

More than dance 

UofSC assistant professor Thaddeus Davis has a passion for dance — its study, its practice, its research. He says dance is so important in his life it’s easier to say what he doesn’t like than to pinpoint all the reasons he loves it.

Giving hair — and hope 

First-year medical student Travis Muthig had been growing his hair for two years, planning to donate it when it to help a cancer patient. His chance came when his 12-inch pigtails were cut off by a stylist in the Russell House during the USC Beautiful Lengths ceremony. He was one of 40 Carolina students, faculty and staff members who donated their long locks to help provide free wigs for cancer patients.

USC’s library annex

USC Libraries boasts an impressive number of volumes and collections but it can’t all fit within the walls of Thomas Cooper Library or the other libraries on campus. But out on Farrow Road, Nelson Rivera and his team make sure any book — or handwritten letter, or back copy of a magazine, or bit of microfiche — is just a download or shuttle drive away.

An official Gamecock welcome

In July USC wraps up its orientation for the class of 2017. But it’s student leaders that make the official welcome a success. Here’s what some orientation leaders think about the experience of welcoming the newest Gamecocks to the family.

Sweating it out 

USC’s Alisa Liggett brings energy to her day job working on campus and she’s found it by teaching group exercise classes in the evenings to faculty, staff and students.

Students bring Wagner’s music to life 

Before the scholars arrive, before The New Yorker’s Alex Ross begins his speech, before any academic analysis is given, the USC Symphony Orchestra, led by students, will bring Richard Wagner’s music to life.

Professors use McCutchen House as living laboratory 

Haunted Carolina 

Every year around Halloween, University Ambassadors volunteer to take groups of students across the historic campus to share haunted Carolina stories, and, of course, a little history.

Bringing historical spirituals to life 

The University of South Carolina Gospel Choir will perform its Festival of Spirituals Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m., performing traditional Negro spirituals, plantation songs and other spiritual songs from early African-American culture.

Move-in crew – only way to start the year

Faculty, staff, students and even a couple of parents dropped everything to help students pick up their boxes, baskets and refrigerators Saturday (Aug. 18) to move into USC’s on-campus housing. For many of the members of the Move-In Crew, this year was not the first year of pitching in.
