College Junior

Party Scene: I don't do any partying, I mostly study or play sports at the on campus gym.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you like fast-food, then you'll like what is around campus. All the restaurants are a fifteen minute away from campus, and that is the worst part.

3 College Junior

Administration: All they seem to care about is getting money from your parking violations. They aren't the most in-tune with the student population.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The people at the financial aid office are nice, but their not going to go out of their way to help you.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not the freshest food in the world, but considering the cafeteria is buffet style its not too bad.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is average at best. The appliances aren't the newest or cleanest in the world. Most of the students are commuters, so there isn't a lot of commendatory among them. If you want a great place to study, the campus library is the best! There are also basketball and tennis courts for the students enjoyment.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: there are three near buy apartment complexes to choose from that are considered off campus. very close to classroom buildings so its a plus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: dont have car or much money so dont go out to eat much

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: not many students so most of the parties are just frat parties

3 College Freshman

Administration: Need to be more lenient when it comes to visitation

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I havent really had to go to financial aid for any help so not sure on this topic

Campus Food: I only eat it cause its there and dont have money to go eat out. Limited choices of food. Need better hours (what college student eats dinner from 5-7)? only do it cause we have too. Needs to add on to the dining hall or even create another

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its okay. wish you could control the air conditioner in the dorms. Wish the cafeteria was better. Limited food choice, only serve food at certain times a day, wish it stayed open longer, and we only have one.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are very small, it feels like high school. Attendance is enforced, and classes are to easy

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honors,Theater, and Nursing Program are great. Everything else is a waste of money.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Lot's of good looking girls. The only trouble is catching them before they commute back home. Rarely do you see anyone staying on campus more than you have to

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You have to drive in order to get to health center. They were closed for 8 hours one day for "staff meeting" without any notice. Nurses are rude, and do not care much for the students. Police on Campus are very bad. My roommate planned on doing bath salts one night. I called the police and they said they would deal with it tomorrow. I do not feel safe on campus.

I'm with the USC Upstate Honors program. I have a 4.0 GPA

College Freshman

Athletics: I've never seen any advertising for sports. Everybody is to busy drinking to go to the games.

College Freshman

Greek Life: If you love to party then greek life is for you. If you don't like to party do not go to this school

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live Off-Campus. I live in the dorms that are quite horrible. Please see my review for On-Campus hosing

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is no special off campus dining. The school is pretty isolated, so pizza is your best friend

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: If the party scene is your thing this is the place to go. Drugs are rarely enforced, and there is a party everyday.

2 College Freshman

Administration: This is another reason why I didn't like upstate. They spend more time and effort on giving out parking tickets, then drug enforcement. I have never gotten a ticket in my life, but at Upstate I have gotten 3. Where you can park is not very noticeable, especially when you are in a rush or it is raining. Parking for residents is only limited to the dorm area. That means if it is raining or late you have to walk every time. To put it into perspective it takes me 10-20 minutes to walk to my classes from the dorms. Campus police are very rude. My experience with them was very bad. My roomate decided that he was going to do bath salts that night. I called the police and they told me they would deal with it tomorrow. I had to call the local sheriff office to have them send a officer over. Also attendance is required for classes. You can only miss 2 or 3 classes.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a breeze. They try to lure you in as quick as possible. I can tell you personally that this school is overpriced and not worth the money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the cafeteria is nasty. There was a case of food poisoning that affected my friends and I. Luckily they offer other options that you can use your points for. They give you plenty of points to get you through the semester. Having the unlimited meal plan was very wasteful. I only went to the cafeteria a handful of times, because I couldn't eat the food anymore.
