University of South Carolina Reviews
The University of South Carolina is a superb school! I was delighted to meet so many students from around the country (and world). Nearly half of the student population is out-of-state. This creates a dynamic and diverse environment. Because of USC's Honors College and willingness to give major scholarships, the university attracts truly top-notch students. I have been challenged and motivated throughout my time here. Besides the great academic environment, this is a FUN school! There is always something going on. USC football and the famous Five Points bar scene have to be experienced first hand!
Like any other college, USC is what you make of it. You can have the best experience of your life or be miserable the whole time. Being involved in clubs/activities or Greek life will help you build a social circle. My advice is to get involved in something - anything to make your experience more enjoyable. The location is great. Campus is in the middle of downtown with access to stores, restaurants, shops, etc. I love USC so far. My only complaint is that it's uncomfortably HOT all year round. However, I still enjoy going here - best school in the state!
I am a Freshman! And, so far I can tell you coming to this school has been the best decision I have made. It not only is a beautiful campus; it is walkable. I can get to all my classes without having to think about transportation. My classes have been amazing. I am learning so much. I just sit down and the class is already over. I have no problem getting up in the morning to go to class. I look forward to it. Also, I cannot say enough about the city of Columbia; there is so much to do here. University of South Carolina is the whole package. It has so much to offer.
