    What to do for fun

    Students can attend the basketball, softball, or baseball games. There are various functions such as theatre plays, cookouts, movie nights and a lot more fun activities.

    Food and Dining

    Students feel at home, whenever they dine and the cafeteria. There are different varieties of food and you may sit, relax and watch the television if you desire. Although we have no dorms, the college life is still awesome.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately, USC Sumter has no dorms. This is because it is a 2year school where students can start their education, and then they can be transferred to another USC Campus to further their studies. I wish they would however consider dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Most of the courses that i have taken are not challenging. Some can be more challenging however, but i just apply myself and attack them. Some professors give many homework and some do not. this may be the same for quizzes, papers and tests.

    The University of South Carolina is such an amazing institution. The small classrooms allow students to receive the one and one time they need with their professors. I truly enjoy attending this wonderful school.

    What to do for fun

    There are an assortment of restaurants, but not many activities for students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not attend this school unless your financial situation requires you to do so.

    In three sentences

    It is a good school with regards to being able to get the credits you need to transfer to a four year college at a reasonable cost. The classes are very easy however, and cannot be compared to the rigor of classes at a four year school. There is no on-campus housing, so plan on spending a lot of time alone.
