Great Classes, but Some Have Nothing to Do With Major – I'm a business major, and my business classes are amazing! I am required to take some classes that have nothing to do with my major though. I was required to take art history and anthropology, and they were overall my hardest classes. I was able to pass my first semester of college with a 4.0, but the classes that had nothing to do with my major were the most difficult.

Teachers Are Great, Location Is Mediocre. The professors are pretty helpful, but a few of them are phenomenal! That's my favorite thing about the school. On the down side, its location isn't that fantastic.

It's a college education at the same standard and curriculum as the University of South Carolina's main campus, but with smaller, more individualized classes where your professors take the time to get to know you. All the while you're receiving this major university education, you're still in the comfort of you're own town and being close to family and friends.
