Carolana:  Yearbook of the University of South Carolina Upstate   

The Spartanburg Regional Campus, opened in the fall of 1967, did not produce their own separate yearbook until 1969.  In 1968, they were included in the Regional Campus Edition of the Garnet and Black, with a ten-page layout.  Beginning in 1969, the Carolana yearbook was produced every year through 1982 at which time publication was ceased.  The yearbook made a brief return in 1989, and the final edition was produced in 1990.   

 

The history of the University of South Carolina Upstate is one of rapid development and deep ties to the Spartanburg community.  When Spartanburg General Hospital announced plans to phase out its diploma program for registered nurses, the need for a replacement source of trained nurses was quickly evident.  A group of dedicated citizens and community leaders worked quickly and tirelessly to bring a branch campus of the University of South Carolina to Spartanburg, and in September 1967 the Spartanburg Regional Campus welcomed 177 students through its doors. 

From our humble beginnings on the first floor of the nursing residence at Spartanburg General Hospital, through name changes from the University of South Carolina Spartanburg to the University of South Carolina Upstate, to the beautiful 330-acre Spartanburg campus that today educates approximately 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students, one thing has remained the same…the commitment to being one of the leading metropolitan universities in the Southeast.
