What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
I would rate the University of South Carolina an 8.5 out of 10. The professors here, unlike other schools, try to reach out to their students, and keep them involved. Although the school isn't as big as other universities, you still get the full experience of a college life.
Kelsie from Spartanburg, SC
Upstate is a small school, so the staff is very dedicated. The dormitories are pretty nice and there are always on-campus activities. Even though we are a small school, you can find something on-campus for you.
