South Carolina State University Reviews
Review South Carolina State University
My experience at South Carolina State University is different in many ways. From graduating from a prominently white high school, surrounding myself of people of the same race makes the environment much different. From the music, the way people dress and also the different slang that is used through friendly chatter. Another element of this experience is the professors from never having a African American or foreign teacher classroom settings in some cases are different from back home. Classes are more intractable and sociable with there also being order in the classroom from the professor making the classroom setting much enjoyable.
My experience at South Carolina State University has been a little more than expected. When I was a senior in High School, I honestly didn't have my eyes on South Carolina State until the second semester. I thought I made my college choice well before graduation creeped up on me and South Carolina State was really my last choice. However, after experiencing my first semester at South Carolina State, I can honestly say that if I had to make a choice while having the prior knowledge about SC State this would have been my first choice. Since day one, the people I encountered has made my transition to college from high school a whole lot easy. I've been guided from the students, the administration, and all the way to my professors in the right path. The people at this institution proves that the youth of this generation will do great things.
I love my University. It's family-oriented and holds people to a higher standard. Sometimes, I feel like they just let anyone in, but after these people are grilled by a professor they take a shining to, they either barely make it through, make room for someone else to take their place, or pull through strong come their junior year. There are support systems here. Our office of financial aid can use some serious help, though. I understand that catering to freshmen is important, but in doing so, they disrespect and neglect their upperclassmen, often leaving us out to dry. They also don't mention certain funds/scholarships that should be readily available to the student that needs just a little extra help. The food is... Okay. I just wish they would stop raising tuition just to give us the same stuff they've been giving us without improvement.
