USC students at the National Postal Museum (NPM)

On Monday 5/13/19, a group of 9 students from the University of South Carolina (USC) began a 3-week Open Doors seminar at the Smithsonian. This externship experience is part of a partnership between the Smithsonian and USC that was established in 2017. Each year, USC sends members of their Honors College to participate in a “Beyond the Classroom” experience at the Smithsonian. The students are accompanied by a USC professor who supplements their Smithsonian tours with readings and lectures designed to enhance the learning experience.
