Academically, I have learned so much this semester. All of my courses were fairly hard, and I anticipated the challenge. I believe a firm education is based resisting the urge to take easy courses.

    Rigorous academic courses set in the idyllic Blue Ridge Mountains are the highlight of the experience at USC Upstate. The teachers are as open to learning as the students are, and while there are many students enrolled at the college, it still feels relatively small. Affordable commuter or on campus option to earning a bachelor's degree in the upstate region of South Carolina.

    The University of South Carolina: Upstate is a great place to learn. The environment is very positive and teachers encourage students to put their full effort into their classes. The relationship between professors and students is professional, but those teachers make students feel comfortable and not pressured while learning in class.

    USC Upstate is not a bad school at all. The classes are not too bad and the staff is very friendly. My only problem is the housing, or, rather, the lack of anything in common with my roommates.

    At first, I love the school, but quickly grew to hate it. I was in the wrong degree for myself, which made me regret ever attending the school. Now that I have changed my degree, I have found amazing teachers, students sharing my interest, and I love it.

    This school is they perfect size or anyone who is intimidated by larger schools. This school has beautiful landscaping and plenty of room for students to stretch in and out of the classroom. Students will be able to succeed with smaller classrooms where professors know your name and personalities.

    Varying degrees of difficulty depending on your major. The campus is large enough to feel like a university but not overwhelmingly so. Great place to meet friends.
