3.92 Average Rating
The campus is beautiful and not too spread out. All of my classes have been wonderful thus far, and really are shaped to my interests. There are so many study enhancements in this community to make sure that students do succeed.

I love the opportunities USC offers for its athletes, they have a huge support staff specifically for the athletes. The chances for outside research are phenomenal, especially for those in the Marine Sciences department. Go Gamecocks!
