Just from attending USC-Beaufort for one semester I have found that I love the environment on campus and off campus. The campus is very laid back and the distractions are very minimal. I love the dorms because you have the option of having a single or double room as well as the apartment style. I feel like I am at home here. The only thing that I would change about USC-Beaufort is the amount of activities available on campus and more available majors and minors. Other than that I enjoy living on this campus and going to school here. I highly recommend this college to those seeking a small class size, professors willing to work with you, and awesome dorms! I believe my choice of choosing USC-Beaufort was the best I've made so far!
Review University of South Carolina - Beaufort
My experience at the University of SC-Beaufort was phenominal! The campus for the first part is beautiful, very airy and clean. When you're walking through the campus, everyone is very respectful, nice and speaks to you! From the students to the faculty. The south is known for their "southern hospitality" and I can see why. I wouldn't change I thing about the campus. I'm happy to be able to say I'm attending this school for the Spring 2017 semester.
I am currently on the Track and Field team here at University of South Carolina Beaufort. So far, I'm really enjoying and always looking forward to practice everyday. The gym has every resources needed to fulfill all the athletes needs to workout. The gym hours are great and the staff is very friendly. My only complaint is that, because we are a new school, we do not have a track, baseball field, softball field, or tennis court build up yet. The school is still under going construction but the athletes and coaches seem patient about it. Just a few more years and University of South Carolina Beaufort will strive!
