I think it's a great institution that gives every student a chance to succeed. USC provides the resources and opportunities for success and it's up to each student to take advantage of it. I feel that this school has set me up for a very prosperous career and has opened many opportunities for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school! While it is the heart of the city of Columbia when you are on campus there is no doubting that you are on campus. The separation between the city and the campus is what really sold me to attending USC. There is the capital city of South Carolina at your finger tips while still knowing that you are enjoying a special college experience. My major, athletic training, has opened up so many opportunities for me here and I don't know what I would do without it. I love the football, south culture, and wide variety of people and experiences my time here has opened me to. I wouldn't change my time at USC for anything!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally feel that attending the University of South Carolina has been the best choice I could have made in regards to my education. It is a very diverse and welcoming campus. There is not a single second of any day where I do not feel like I am at home in Columbia. The student life is great for Greek and non-Greek affiliated students with numerous athletic events going on all of the time as well as the philanthropy events. Surrounding the campus is the capital city of Columbia where there are countless opportunities to have fun and spend time with friends by dining, shopping, partaking in nightlife, or exploring all of the city’s outdoor activities. While creating memories with your peers is great, I believe that the University of South Carolina’s academic record is even better. Known for the Nation’s Best Honors College, the number one International Business program, the number one doctoral program in exercise science, the number three college town in America, and being a part of the top one percent of patent-producing universities in the world, the University is second to none. The University’s standards are high and rigorous which challenge students to think outside the box and to work beyond their potential. When students graduate, they are extremely likely to become successful members of society who have the capacity to compete globally in our ever changing world. When considering furthering my education, the University of South Carolina was the first and only school I wanted to attend. The high academic standards as well as the diverse and welcoming atmosphere made the University of South Carolina the only choice for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My education was always going to lead me to studying at the University of South Carolina. My parents graduated from USC, my brother and sister spent a few semesters here, and we’ve been die-hard Gamecocks for decades. Once I was finally able to begin attending USC after attending a local technical college, I was apprehensive because of the size of the campus, the size of the student body, and whether the professors would be caring and truly interested in me. I wasn’t disappointed. My advisor started off my experience on a positive note. She showed an invested interest in me, emailing me every month to make sure I was on track to register for my classes, and to make sure I was doing alright with my class loads. The classes I took were mostly made up of between 18 and 40 students, and my professors tried to learn my name and learn about me as an individual. The campus is beautiful and, despite parking being a hassle, easy to get around. It wasn’t until I joined a local campus organization that I really felt like I was a part of something in college. With all the groups to choose from, I may even try to join another next semester if I have the time for it. If the University of South Carolina is anywhere in your top 10 colleges/universities to attend, it is definitely worth the time to tour and learn more about. I only have three semesters left, and I can honestly say I’ll be sad to leave the atmosphere I’ve been so warmly welcomed into.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina-Columbia is truly a place that I can enjoy while also getting the academics I need. I'm usually a wallflower, but the university and its faculty and students have made me feel very welcome. Activities are held everywhere on campus, almost everyday there is something interesting going on that makes me want to go out and socialize with different groups that have different aspects. The academics here have shown me that my major doesn't pertain to one specific job, I can get my degree and use it in almost every field! At the University of South Carolina I am not restricted, I am encouraged to do everything and anything and experience the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a member of the Honors College, my experience is slightly different from the rest of USC's. The Honors dorm is one of the nicer ones on campus, and I enjoy smaller class sizes. Campus itself is beautiful and very walkable, and there is always something interesting going on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC is a wonderful place to pursue an undergraduate and potentially graduate degree. Here at USC is a big family that seems small, sure USC is a big place but here everyone is family. the people are nice and friendly. When I came here i was lucky enough to stay in a newly updated dorm which i was thankful for. Here at USC everyone lives for Football games it's the heart of USC. Everyone on gamedays is either dressed up or wearing jerseys and cowboy boots. Most of my classes were small except for the introductory class which were big but nothing you can't handle. the professors are easily to come in contact with and there are loads of resources for help when you need it. overalll my experience here was great.
