Campus Food: I lovethe fact that there are actual restuarants in campus and its not just cafeteria food. you generally get a good serving everywhere you go except for the Colliquium. I think that everythingshould be on meal plan and that we should have a cook out and Bojangles on campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is not the best but there a lot of other nicer residence halls around. The dorms are a relatively nice size. I love the fact that there are two gyms to choose from. Both Blatt and Strom are great. The costs are a little price but theres a nice range to choose from. The ease of the housing process is also pretty good

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is decently priced but fills up quickly.

Off-Campus Dining: The best place to eat is california dreaming but it can get pretty expensive.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration at USC is decent. However they are not very personable.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is not much of a party scene unless youre involved in greek life. Even then, most people just go downtown.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Be sure to turn everything in on time or else you will get less even though they say thats not true.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Very poor quality of food which is extremely overpriced. The meal swipes you dont use dont roll over so if you miss a meal that money just goes to the school and not you. The workers (Sodexo) are extremely rude and do not follow our campus wide tobacco free rules.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings are mostly old and falling apart. The wifi is always disconnected and there was a huge black mold problem going around. It is also extremely hot in my dorm all year round.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A few incidents have happened this year, but I've never been too fearful for my safety.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a HUGE part of life on campus especially for NON-minority groups. Almost every non-minority is a member of greek life, and a lot of if not all of their social scene is centered on greek events and going downtown.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a HUGE part of this school. Top of the line facilities, and athletic events always give students something to do year-round.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is practically a must after freshman yr. Considerably cheaper too.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of unique off campus dining choices, a lot within walking distance and a lot of cool delivery places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is okay, they could go out of their way to handle certain issues better but I guess with that being said it can be a good thing sometimes because if you "slip up" it's not the end of the world.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party scene is okay. A bit segregated. Usually the african american parties take place in houses/apartments areas like copper beech and the caucasian population usually goes downtown where a fake ID is necessary. Tailgates are also usually exclusive to frat boys and sorority girls although some "regular"girls can get into the tailgate lots with no problem

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not much experience with the office.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus dining is a bit of a ripoff because you can potentially pay for "X" amount of swipes and not be able to use them because you only have one swipe per time period, reguardless of what you pay for.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
