3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's food. I don't eat out much.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: You definitely hear a lot of stories about what people do.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The application for financial aid was really easy and there wasn't any hassle in receiving it. The amount I received was a good amount less than I needed, although I did get a good amount, but not everyone can get full rides.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: There are emergency call tower things all over campus in case of some emergency. There's also services that you can call so you don't have to walk across campus alone at night.

4 College Student

Nightlife: Anything from bars to house parties, we've got it all.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: There are some very nice dorms here. Most people are really friendly. Locations are all pretty good except for Bates which is far. Housing applications are really easy and straightforward.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

If there is one word to describe the experiences you will have at USC, it would have to be "unforgettable." Being away from home for the first time at USC is both exciting and scary at times, but the freedom you get when you come here feels natural. It makes you wonder why they don’t send people to college sooner! Academically, there are courses and professors who can make you look at things in ways you never considered before. Facts and figures will be thrown at you, but some of the professors (and your peers) can teach you a lot about life as well. It’s also a very cool thing to see laid-back professors who will sometimes move their classes out onto the Horseshoe lawn.

On top of this, with such a large student population, you will inevitably form new relationships that will last a lifetime. As at any college, the quality of the experience depends on what you put into it. There are thousands of new people to meet, tons of activities going on, and things to learn both in and out of class. Those who don’t take advantage of these opportunities will not get a lot out of their experience here. Some students get tired of being at USC after a while, and some hate it from the start for whatever reason. USC is not the place for everyone, but overall, students seem to be thoroughly enamored with Carolina and wouldn’t trade their title of Gamecocks for anything in the world. There seems to be an aura of its own inherent to the University, and its welcoming vibe is infectious.
