Professors are typically knowledgeable and passionate about their respective fields. Very few times where the professor poorly conveys topics or ideas for the class or the expectation for the work for the semester. Living on campus is okay, dorms are average in size. Food in cafeteria is surprisingly good! Administration and financial aid people are super helpful and willing to work with you. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay near home but kinda get a taste of the typical college life seen on tv and film.

The University of South Carolina Beaufort Is a really great school for acedemics. The University has one of the best nursing, communications and Hospitality programs. If you play Women's Soccer or Baseball then this will be a great school to play at. The University of South Carolina Beaufort offers other sports besides soccer and baseball like Basketball, volleyball, Softball, and Men's Soccer but they are only club sports which means they're not division based. The University of South Carolina Beaufort is broken up into 3 campuses. The Beaufort Campus located in Beaufort, South Carolina are for Studio Art/Media Majors, The HiltonHead Campus located in Hilton Head, South Carolina are for Hospitality Majors, and the Bluffton Campus which is the main campus located in Bluffton, South Carolina are for every other major the school has to offer. Even though the campuses are divided based on the particular Major you will be allowed to live in or attend any of the 3 campuses.
I transferred to the University of South Carolina - Beaufort this fall. I came from a technical college in GA and I can say that it has been a big change. This school is beautiful! This staff here is amazing. They all truly care about the students and their academic success. USCB has so many opportunities for the students to be involved. There are countless club around campus. One thing that really sets this school apart is the way they care for their students. Mental health is a big topic around campus and something that the staff really cares about.
