University of South Carolina - Upstate Reviews
My experience with USC Upstate has been educational, exciting and full of opportunities where I have met and engaged with students from diverse backgrounds and cultures. USC Upstate is part of a great University of South Carolina network of schools throughout South Carolina, but this particular campus of about 6000 students is the perfect fit for me. I love it here and encourage anyone interested in a great education at a campus that feels like home to join us here at USC Upstate!
I love that USC Upstate has diverse educational opportunities for students! Faculty and staff are very helpful and get back to you in a timely manner. The campus is pretty big and I haven’t gotten to see everything yet, but there are a ton of clubs and sports and groups that anyone could fit into. Diversity is so hard to come by and the University of South Carolina Upstate definitely has diversity!
I graduated with my bachelors from this school, I loved my classes and thought my professors were really great. The class sizes are fairly small, so you definitely get to know your professor, and to ask question. The campus is super beautiful, they do a fantastic job of maintaining it, the foods great, and everyone is super nice. The wellness center is awesome, and they have a pool, and hot tub! I'm currently back for a certificate in teaching. Honestly, it's a great university, I am super glad I get to attend it!
