4 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have great programs for these kinds of things. USC police work hard to prevent these things from happening along with the faculty and staff.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I really don't know much about the Greek life on my campus because I have no intentions on getting involved with it.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The sports at our school are great there is defiantly not a shortage of things to do. I however am not really a big sports person.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like my School just fine. I just really wish it was easier for me to get additional funding needed to pay for my classes and books.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I believe the safety level of this campus is high and campus security has a active presence.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: They are a lot of job opportunities for students hear at USC.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It gets the job done, but they aren't five star hotels.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: It's not the best and not the worst.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We have great athletic programs, but have only had a little success in sports to go along with it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience has been full of options and ways to find success in any field I see fit for myself.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first year at Carolina was the absolute best. The professors and instructors were extremely knowledgable and helpful. Extracurricular activities are offered everywhere.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm in the nursing program. It is an extremely prestigious program. The worst part is that it is extremely competitive. The best part is that there will always be a job for the students when they graduate.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are many safety speeches given by campus police. There is an enormous amount of campus police. There are many emergency call buttons on campus. There are many safety apps that are specialized for Carolina students.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have very few complaints about on campus housing. Most buildings are in close proximity to class, and if you really care, there's a way to select classes in certain buildings. Majority of the dorms are new or have been renovated. A few of the dorms could be more spacious. One of the biggest inconveniences of the dorms is that some of the security is set up only to grant access to residents of that specific building. The other huge inconvenience is the strictness of RA's/RM's when it comes to signing in and out the guests.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority. My personal opinions are from an outsider's perspective. It seems a bit superficial around The University. I feel that at other schools, sororities are more involved in charity work. Carolina does however offer charity based sororities. I can also say from my personal encounters with sorority girls, that some of them have been completely down to earth.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Strom Thurmond wellness center is one of my favorite places on the campus. I previously mentioned the student population was extremely school spirited. In fact, the first few weeks of school, there are many sports games that students can attend for points. The more points you accumulate, the better your chances are to get a free student ticket to the football game. Every time you stay until the end of a football game, you earn a bonus point.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I completely recommend the University of South Carolina as a top choice for graduating seniors' potential colleges. I fell in love with everything about the school. The learning experience was much more enjoyable than in high school: the teachers are more passionate, extremely knowledgable on the details of various subjects, and the classroom setting itself is much engrossing. There's no need to mention the immense amount of school spirit here. I will finally add that the campus is beautiful, the ideal size, and, the weather is impeccable.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely LOVE Carolina and all it has to offer. I am sad I missed out on a freshman year here, but its better late than never!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni center is a great resource!

4 College Junior

Greek Life: It's a great option to take advantage of.

4 College Junior

Athletics: LOVE USC's school spirit and athletic / student community. GO COCKS!!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am so happy I transferred here and would do it all over again!!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: At night you don't really wanna be walking alone so much, but it is safe. You will feel kinda worried.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Finding jobs/internships are not difficult, but it is what you put into the search for the job.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the city is gonna be expensive, but if you get an apartment off campus or house it's better. The only issue after that is parking on campus.

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.
