4 College Student

Academics: Good academic environment and great professors

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Only the athletes really go out- they all have fake id's and go to five points where I've been told, bouncers don't care if your underage. I go hang out at USC, personally but most people stay in and hang out together in their rooms. Everyone here is pretty "lame". We have slumber parties and Disney movie nights, karaoke, crafts, and programs like "Adulting" (you learn to cook and clean and do stuff like taxes and paying bills/budgeting) at night. Sometimes the RAs have "mandatory" meetings and we have to hang out and play name games and stupid stuff like that. To get to five points or usc people carpool or uber.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There aren't parties at school. If you want to party you invite three friends over and drink vodka in your room or go to five points or a USC party.

4 College Senior

Academics: The academics are the best thing about this school. It's the only reason that I haven't transferred back to midlands tech yet. Teachers are understanding and helpful. They're also very passionate and knowledgable about their courses. Workload is enough to be educational and not usually too much. The only problem is that all classes seem to follow the same patterns so if you have a project or paper due in one class, you have a project or paper due in every class. Once you get behind one or two classes of homework- you're screwed.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Everyone here is African-American and lesbian. The first thing I get asked when telling people that I attend here is "Are you gay/bi yet?" Rather than about my classes or campus activities. The few white girls are all on "full-ride" scholarships. Christians (pro-life/anti-homosexuality believers) are quiet or else no one wants to be friends with them.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Enforcement is strict. If you get caught then I think you lose all scholarships and get kicked out but I'm not sure because no one gets caught that does drink or do drugs. That being said you could sneak anything onto this campus as long as it fits in a bag. Drugs/alcohol/weapons. No one searches you, there aren't metal detectors, cops (that are around) don't notice anything

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: Everyone always talks about how great CCPD are, but I never see them around and when I do they're asleep or playing games in their patrol cars. I work in Irmo, about 20 minutes away, and I don't usually get back until 1 or 2AM and I never see CCPD so I speed walk across campus (because parking is very far from my dorm) one time when I got back there was an old crown vic with blacked out windows and it sat in front of my building for hours, I never saw a cop come by to check it out. We also have this rule on campus where students must walk their guests everywhere on campus and one time in my building, the newest and "most secure" building some body let a couple of dudes in and they wandered around our building until a cop found them. There's a lot of girl fights. We live in a really bad area so there's always sirens loudly buzzing past the window since most dorms sit on the edge of the main road.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have one teacher-he's my favorite-he's my teacher for 2 classes last semester, 1 this semester, and my advisor. The school isn't offering a lot of the courses that I'm required to take because supposedly only adjunct teachers teach specific classes for example, I need a non-western history class for my history degree and no one is teaching any last semester or this semester.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alumni are very involved. It seems as though a lot of them got excellent jobs after graduating- a lot of them provide grants and scholarships for a few hundred dollars. Internship is required to graduate I believe but I think the main value the school focuses on is volunteering. I haven't seen any employers here or heard of them coming by. I didn't know colleges did that, but it would be a nice opportunity. The value of degree I think is better than some other colleges in this area, I only ever met a few teachers with degrees from Columbia college.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: I accidentally reviewed the housing with academics, but the rooms are very small you're supposed to share with one other person, share a 1/2 bathroom with three other girls, there's been a few hair balls in the hall way for months now (since before thanksgiving break and it's the end of January now) the kitchen is very small and located in the basement (which seems haunted) all buildings (except McNair which has the strictest rules and for mainly freshmen and transfer students) are very old and falling apart. There's also a lady bug infestation in most rooms during the winter, and just this morning a maintenance guy came in my room while I was sleeping. Residence life people are snobby and very difficult to work with.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life and even if we did- this is an all girls school so it would be bad

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletes are allowed to wear short shorts and spandex in the gym whereas regular students going to work out are not allowed to. Hours for the gym suck if you're a working student
