What is your overall opinion of this school?

Many things stick out to me when I think of the University of South Carolina - Columbia. A vast majority f these things are positive, since I absolutely adore and appreciate the numerous things on campus that are available to students, such as a health clinic, two full gyms, free tutoring, and the culture surrounding the Gamecocks. However, there is on things that has turned me off and that is all of the stairs and hills. i feel like I'm getting a full on workout everyday walking to class or the Russel house. While it may be good for my health, my legs are not fans.

I absolutely love the University of South Carolina so far. There’s always events going on on Green Street and all over campus. The facilities are great and there’s resources for anything you could possibly need. Professors are highly qualified and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of South Carolina. This institution has made the transition from Iowa a breeze. The culture cultivated here is incredible as academics emphasized but socialization is encouraged heavily. There are plenty of parties to go to if that is your thing, but I have found many people who choose not to partake. This university cares about its students, and I feel right at home here at Carolina.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I love all of my professors and the academics the school provides, it is heavily known as a party school. Being nestled in the center of downtown has caused issues with underage drinking, though I am sure that most campuses have this issue. Overall I love it and would love it even move if it was a closed campus rather than an open one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the University of South Carolina-Columbia. I just moved in last week for my freshman year, but I already fell in love. Even though I have three classes a day Monday-Thursday, they are spread out enough where I have time to do homework, grab a meal, or just have some free time, which I am not used to as in high school it was nonstop all the time. However, the further away your dorm is from the middle of campus, the worse the WiFi works. My dorm is about half a mile from Russell House which is one of the central hubs on campus and the WiFi in my dorm is terrible. We all have to use Ethernet cords for our laptops or make our phones a hot spot. This has been the only negative I have found since coming here. I do like how there are shuttles during the day, then after 8 p.m. the USC P.D. has shuttles to ensure students get to and from places safely in a secure vehicle, not having to rely on Ubers, Lyfts, or other strangers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school and the campus. Everyone there is very friendly and I feel safe there. I also feel that I have many opportunities to be successful at the school with all the help that I have access to. The professors who I have met have made me feel comfortable about moving to a new state and are willing to help me whether it be an academic-based problem or a personal issue I am dealing with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina is a school like no other. The student's have an unparalleled connection and sense of unity. This is a powerful group of people who will make change happen and stand up for the little guys when needed. The community here is awe-inspiring and the pride they take in the school is unlike any other. The campus is always improving its academic scene, even though it is already highly ranked. They really do try to be the best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina is the biggest college in the state and being a student here I can easily say that our students also have the biggest pride to show. We've got hundreds of clubs, great food and even dogs students can rent over finals week to uplift student's moods. Centered in the heart of our states capitol, the school is full of history, opportunities, die hard football fans and incredible diversity. Being part of such a big University can definitely have its cons such as big class sizes, however no school is perfect. In my opinion, USC is a very underrated school that has things to offer for everyone no matter where you're from. If you ever find yourself in Columbia, stop and take a walk around our campus and see what we're all about. GO cocks !!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of South Carolina is the greatest university in the state of South Carolina and, arguably, the entire Southeast. The friendships you make here will last a lifetime, and the professional connections and enormous alumni network will ensure that you always have plenty of career options wherever you end up. The faculty and staff are dedicated to YOUR success and provide a personalized success plan so you are prepared for the real world after graduation. There is a reason that we have one of the largest alumni donor percentage in the nation, and it is because being a Gamecock isn't just for four years--it's for life!
