See Yourself at Converse

Whether you live on campus or commute, your student life experience is where your learning goes beyond the classroom.

You’ll score an internship or find a mentor — or both. You’ll groove on downtown Spartanburg’s art and music vibe, while finding local opportunities to flourish personally and professionally. You’ll venture out into the nearby outdoors, so bring your kayak and hiking boots. Most of all, you’ll find a community that will support you, push you, and cheer you forward.
