University Readiness Center

A one-of-a-kind partnership between the South Carolina Army National Guard and USC Upstate resulted in a $7 million facility that is shared by the 228th Signal Brigade and the University. USC Upstate is provided with additional classroom space, special events locations, hospitality rooms for the County University Soccer Stadium, dressing rooms for athletic teams, and support facilities for The Louis P. Howell Athletic Complex.

University Readiness Center Home Locker Room

Pictured is a portion of one of the home locker rooms in the University Readiness Center. The locker rooms are the home of the men's and women's soccer teams in the fall and the baseball, softball, and tennis teams in the spring. The lockers pictured here were donated by the University of South Carolina. They previously were used in the South Carolina Gamecock football locker room until they were replaced during renovations to the locker room in Columbia.
