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...

    Can someone give me an idea of how they liked the honors college? Is there anything I should be asking? How are the Honors Classes?

    USC has an amazing community of students. Everybody is very supportive of others and come together to form a diverse and kind group of people. No matter where you're from, what you look like, and all the other differences people can have, you will find a welcoming crowd at USC.

    The University of South Carolina-Columbia is one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever been too! It has great dining options. The major/degree range is expansive and detailed.

    I thought USC was an easy school where I would not reach my full potential but I was very wrong. USC allows each student to personalize their experience based on what he or she wants to make college. USC pushes each student to reach their maximum potential and then keep going past that point.

    USC has a surreal amount of opportunities to become and involved with both your major and interests that allows you to feel at home as soon as you get on campus. Between the safety, the dining, student-life, academic opportunities and career success centers, this university provides all of the resources to be successful and enjoy a healthy and exciting college experience! There is always a chance to get involved and to meet new people, which is really what the college experience is about!

    The campus is beautiful, well-kept, and modern yet it still keeps the old southern charm. I felt right at home the moment I stepped on the horseshoe. I can not wait to spend the next four years at such a wonderful school.

    As a freshman, I have no experienced much yet in terms of college life, but so far I am in love with this school and I don't see that changing. I am a nursing major and only came here for that program and the amazing scholarship I received. The people here are incredibly nice, the professors I have are wonderful, and it has become a home away from home (just with terrible food).

    Has a great atmosphere for anything that you want to get involved in. The school spirit here is incredibly contagious, even with a mediocre football season. The academics are not incredibly difficult, but the professors obviously care about their students.

    USC is the largest university in South Carolina and the flagship campus in the University of South Carolina system. For this reason, it definitely is bustling with so many opportunities for students, both academically and socially. The campus has a southern feel to it, but its highly ranked academic programs and exciting football atmosphere attract students from all over the east coast, with almost 40% of students being from out-of-state.
