The University of South Carolina is an exceptional school to attend. The is always a function going on whether it be Carolina After Dark, a Greek function, or meetings for one of the school's student organizations. There are over 300 student organizations on the Columbia campus, which allows something for everyone. The classes are great and there are many great professor on campus. Alot of the classes after freshman year are smaller intricate classes that let you get familiar with others and the professor in class. The tuition is a little high, but that's any college, but it is all...

    The campus is absolutely beautiful! Sports and greek life seem to be a huge part of the school especially football games. For out of state students it seems like the tuition is cheaper at USC than other schools.

    This campus is beautiful, and there seems to be the perfect balance of academics and extra curriculars.I would like to go for research and because they are a Carnegie recognized school, there is tons of it constantly occurring. For example, during my summer tour, there was ovarian cancer research happening on campus conducted by the graduate students.

    This university is a great place for athletics, our program in all sports are improving. This past year for football we had the number one draft pick. Education is also great depending on the professor you get.

    The University of South Carolina is a fine school in all aspects of a good school. The institute really does want your money, however, but it provides great value, opportunities, and resources for those who are willing to seek after and use them. The academics are rigorous, the sports are entertaining, the organizations and clubs are useful for making and strengthening connections, and the overall experience is very pleasant.

    From the first time I visited USC's campus, I felt at home. The people are incredibly welcoming and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. Being at USC makes it very hard to be homesick (I am from CT).

    USC-Columbia has been life changing for me. They helped me grow as an individual and young adult by making me figure out the world for myself but they also provide support so I didn't feel completely lost. I would give USC-Columbia a very high grade on a scale because it has helped me develop the way a university should.

    Overall, the university is extremely friendly and accepting. Professors are always willing to help out if you're confused, the food is actually pretty decent, and the campus is gorgeous and well laid out. I could not have asked for a better school and I highly recommend it to any high school students applying to college

    Attending a college in one of the most conservative states is not the best choice I could have madet, but there are students who take action for change. There are many cliques but you will meet someone that you enjoy spending your time with. Sports is a huge deal here, so be prepared for the crazy tailgating and football parties.
