Spartanburg, S.C. – The USC Upstate Athletic Department helped its student-athletes begin the 2017-18 academic year on Thursday evening by holding a Welcome Back Party on campus following the first day of classes.

The evening began inside the G.B. Hodge Center with USC Upstate Chancellor Dr. Brendan Kelly, Athletic Director and Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Julio Freire, and Upstate SAAC Vice President Brittany Case giving opening statements to the over 260 Spartan student-athletes.

Following the remarks, the student-athletes and department staff were treated to dinner outside of the arena. All in attendance were fed barbeque, grilled chicken, veggie burgers, green salad, fruit salad, beans, fruit and cookies.
