Richard T. Greener

Larger than life

Richard T. Greener’s larger-than-life story is one of academic achievement, professional success and civic service, played out mostly in the tumultuous years after the Civil War. It’s a story of firsts — in addition to being USC’s first black professor, Greener was also Harvard’s first black graduate and America’s first black diplomat to a country of white citizenry.

Stronger together

Kristal Tribble and Tina Williamson enrolled in Carolina's online RN to BSN program thinking it would be a solitary endeavor. Instead, they found community and friendship, and the pair are now pursuing the College of Nursing's online master's of nursing program together.

Christopher Wach

Christopher Wach planned to make a career in military, but injuries sustained in Afghanistan earned him two Purple Hearts and a medical discharge. He was able to find a second home and a new career path at the University of South Carolina.
