Lugoff is a safe and humble area of SC. Here in Lugoff, we have amazing schools, plenty of job opportunities, access to Columbia which is 15 minutes away, great first responders, and both beaches and mountains depending on the way in which you travel. I've lived her my entire life and I have seen this area grow rapidly. Soon enough, we may be as populated as Columbia. This area is absolutely beautiful; we have a state park in Columbia and here in Lugoff, we have Lake Wateree. Soon all of our elementary schools will be remodeled making educational environments even better!

Lugoff is one of the most quaint little suburbs in the south. Families here all know and get along with one another, educators perform their jobs with exemplary merit, and the neighborhoods are quite clean and kept nice. Absolutely a decent place to raise children. Of course there are some less than ideal places, but that is of course with every town.
Lugoff is a quiet, "not much happening" area found right outside of Columbia. Lugoff's diversity is amazing; we have people from so many different backgrounds and cultures living in this small little area of the world that usually tends to not be seen on maps. Our high school is an amazing educational institution. Our teachers are amazing and we have so many opportunities here. If anything, Lugoff needs to have a larger school built for its high schoolers. We need to slow down on the logging and focus more on working towards problems like drug use seen in the area.
