What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my freshman year and I'm going into my sophomore year. I have really enjoyed everything about USC, from the people to the facilities. While you will find that a majority of people are involved in Greek Life, not being in a fraternity or sorority will not be the end of the world. People are very friendly and you will find your group in no time. The professors, for the most part, can be some great people that really want to help their students. Overall I have really enjoyed my time at USC and I am really looking forward to my remaining three years!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, USC is a really good college. People tend to be big on the sport events that go on here, football, basketball, etc. I'm not one of those people. I prefer the music venue primarily! A major issue with USC is parking, either it's overpriced garage passes or you're fighting to get a spot in the surface lot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina-Columbia has been my dream school ever since I was a little girl, so when I got accepted I was ecstatic. I can honestly say that USC is a great school all around and everybody there wants you to succeed and will do what they can to see that you do. I love the diversity and that there is something for everybody to be apart of; we are like one big family and I would not have it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a really nice school with fun going on daily. There is always things going on and events to get involved with. The classes are very diverse, and usually not that big of a size. Even the 200+ classes have resources that can help better students. Professors are always offering help and there when students need them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school! Aside from the excellent academics, the university offers delicious dining options, a variety of fun events, and a beautiful campus. Sports culture is perhaps the most exciting aspect of student life here. School spirit is constantly seen on student's clothing, accessories, and conversations. Since the campus is in the middle of Columbia, there are lots of things to do off campus as well. Basically, it's great to be a gamecock!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at the University of South Carolina, and anyone who asks where they should attend my answer is pretty clear. This school becomes home, and you are in the center of a beautiful and historic city. There's so much to do, whether it's day-life or night-life. I have yet to find a day looking for more to do. The apartments surrounding campus are amazing and keep getting better as they keep building more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina has given me and many others so many amazing opportunities that I never imagined I would be exposed to in college. Here at USC, we celebrate diversity, honor our history, and strive to improve the world around us every day. There are countless ways for students to get involved and meet new people such as through Greek Life, Intramural/Club teams, Religious Organizations, Student government, and many more. Columbia is a great college town, however, the bar scene is prominent and drinking is a huge problem that needs to be fixed. That being said, it is not impossible to find other people at USC who don't want to contribute to the drinking culture. Overall, UofSC is an amazing school and a place that anyone would love to call home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best decision I ever made was to attend USC. It is a very diverse and friendly environment. The school offers something to interest everybody. I have never felt more welcome than when I'm at school. There is a place for everybody to belong. The campus is in such a unique location, you have everything you need right at your fingertips. Also, the mountains and the beach are both only an hour and a half away. If you love to have fun but also get a great education, have a lot of school spirit, and love the color garnet, USC is the place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina Columbia campus has an overall friendly atmosphere. There is a diverse population of students from different social backgrounds that you can talk to and learn from. The staff is friendly and are happy to help students who are in need! There are a few instances where people can be rude, particularly in the dining hall when one person sits in a booth made for four. There is also the fact that the campus is particularly large and hilly. Despite these negatives, USC is a great place to be! I feel comfortable and happy on campus.
