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.

    Its a nice, small school that invites good students to work hard. The campus is beautiful, and small enough to easily navigate. The professors are on the more helpful side, making classes educational and not annoying.

    Upstate is a pretty laid back school, the campus is small and around three thousand kids there. The school tries to host many activities for the students to attend and make things fun. Overall it's a good school and great for kids who don't want to go too far away from home but good for a first time college student.

    USC Upstate is a decent school for the price. Upstate has a decent surrounding area, with access to basic needs, while other things can be easily reached. Campus is viewable from the highway, so there is no way to miss it.

    The University of South Carolina- Upstate is a wonderful school for commuters to attend, because of the amount of parking. You will never find yourself rushing to class dangerously, because there will be an open parking spot right in front of your classroom building! This school also offers a wide variety of majors spanning from The Mary Black School of Nursing all the way to the Downtown Spartanburg George Dean Johnson School of Business.

    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.
