We are having a cocktail party Friday night (Oct. 21). The party is at the Sheraton Hotel Ballroom, 1400 Main St in downtown Columbia. The event starts at 7:30 and the band will be coming on around 7:45. The dress is semi formal (sportcoats but no ties for the gentlemen). There will be finger foods, but a full meal for each person is not included. We will have a cash bar with three beer and three wine selections. 

For Saturday events, we are still in the planning stages. We are looking into having all the brothers and their parents go to a new restaurant on Main Street, called The Public House. This is right near the Sheraton. It will be a very casual and family-oriented event. We hope to have it booked as soon as the football game that day is announced.

Group football tickets will be available here: https://groupmatics.events/SAEParentsWeekend

The USC SAE parents and their families have access discounted tickets for the 10/22 Parents' Weekend game against UMass. The tickets are available to you at the discounted rate of just $25. All tickets purchased through this portal will be in the same block of seats.

Your son will get a free student ticket to this game and be able to sit in the student section. If you want him to sit with you, you would need to purchase a ticket for him through this link!

This game is also the State Fair game. This allows you to park in the Fairgrounds parking lot for $5 (first come, first serve).

Your ticket to the game will give you free access to the State Fair before and after the game. If you have plans to go to the State Fair after  the game, you need to check in at the State Fair before you enter the Stadium to get a wristband that will give you free access after the game.


You can try the Sheraton at (803) 988-1400 for room reservations, or the USC Marriott Courtyard at (803) 799-7800.
