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.

Beyond Converse

Converse graduates develop skills beyond what they learn in classes to their real-world experiences. Our students set themselves up for career success through independent or collaborative research, creative projects, service-learning, work-study options, and our vast alumni network.

Experiential learning opportunities such as internships, clinical experiences, student teaching, and study-travel offer transformative, out-of-the-box experiences to develop problem-solving skills and expand their ability for innovative thinking.
