5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority, but it seems fun

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My experience with campus housing was okay. I think that overall, the living arrangements are acceptable. My dorm was very spacious and clean, however other on campus housing such as Bates and Bates West were very poorly kept. Additonally, there was not a consistent level of security in all of the dorms. I think it's very sexist that the all female dorms has intense security protocol while the all male dorm has little to no security.

Greek Life: Greek life at USC is great. It brings students together and bonds us as brothers or sisters of really awesome Greek organizations that push students to be the best and brightest young men and women that they can be.

Overall Experience: USC Columbia has been, like everything, good and bad. However, I feel that focusing on the positive aspects lets one get the most out of school in every way. MY 2 favorite thing about USC, as well as the most unique things are the campus and the bar scene.

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.
