2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I hated my traditional style dorm that I was in last year, mostly because I did not like the girls I was with on the hall and I need to have my own space.

Greek Life: So many people are in Greek life and it is all they talk about. I often feel left out because I do not want to join.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is too big for me, as well as too far from home. Everyone parties and drinks, which I don't want to do. I haven't met any good friends.

Overall Experience: The professors are good, The only thing I am struggling with is the accents of some of them.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: USC has an amazing greek life but it is very hard to join Fraternities in general due to the mass amount of people who rush but the sororities all have quotas and every girl who sings up for rush must get a bid even though it might not be from the sorority they wanted

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics are played in the SEC and in baseball and most women's sports we have competed for a conference title which brings a buzz around campus but our football team hasn't been the best the past two years but the school still rallies around them especially on big game days

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My time at school has been amazing all of my professors were very helpful and showed a genuine interests in helping the students succeed in their classes. There are many programs that are put into place that are specially designed to help students in the more difficult classes. Outside of the classroom South Carolina has been so much fun with it being located in the state capital there is always something going on that will be fin to do.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a beautiful school, but many of the administrators don't seem to be informed.

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.
