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 beautiful, however it is extremely warm due to the location of that school. While the campus strives to push their encompassing of safety, the school in truly a part of Columbia. Anyone could walk onto campus and no one would notice, so safety could be an issue.

    The University of South Carolina has a beautiful campus with tons of clubs, sports, and activities to become involved in. The academic programs, especially the business and nursing programs, are high ranked and always growing and improving. The student life is active, and there's always something going on somewhere on campus for students to get involved in.

    Every time my friends from home complain about their colleges, my friends from USC and I can never relate because we would never dream of going anywhere else. I find out something new and interesting about USC almost every day, whether it be a new shortcut, study spot, restaurant, secret, club, or event; there is always something to explore. Columbia, South Carolina, home of the Gamecocks, is known as "the city of dreams," and I couldn't agree more.

    The University of South Carolina has become a home for me since I started attending. The professors in my major are passionate and always helpful. There are more than enough social activities to keep you busy on and off campus.

    The campus at USC is so beautiful! It gives you a nice homey feeling! It is very hot, but the college seems worth the sacrifice from what I saw.

    I have called USC home for three years now, and I cannot begin to explain how much I truly enjoy being a Gamecock. Even though the school size can be daunting at first, it is very easy to find a niche and make it your home. I have made some of the best friends here while also getting a top notch education!
