I would like to see Orangeburg, SC spend more time creating more opportunities to pass the time. Our youth has a lot of time to get in trouble and indulge in things they shouldn’t because there is nothing to do. We lack a movie theatre or skating rink. Our mall needs to be renovated because it is very small and lacks cleanliness and variety. Most times to have fun or go shopping we must drive 50 minutes to Columbia, South Carolina or Charleston, South Carolina. We have a lot of pride in our county but we must start to see officials out money back into the city we love.

My experience living in Orangeburg is pretty average and what I like most about Orangeburg is the commute and travel distance to certain places. One thing that I would like to see changing in Orangeburg is more investment in homes/apartments for people to live in, improvement in mall and a bowling alley so that people can socialize plus that bowling alley is a part of history for Orangeburg County.
My experience in Orangeburg County has been great! I came to Orangeburg county to go to South Carolina State University. I fell in love with the people of Orangeburg. I met my wife who was born in Orangeburg County. Orangeburg County will always be a part of my life.
