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.
