Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the University of South Carolina Upstate is a public university in northwest South Carolina. USC Upstate features colleges of Education, Social Sciences, Business, Nursing, and Science offering over 40 bachelor’s degree programs. The USC Upstate campus is centered around the Susan Jacobs Arboretum, a 12-acre nature preserve including an outdoor amphitheater. For sports fans, USC Upstate fields 13 athletic teams known as the Spartans.
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.

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.
