4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Walk Home Cocky is a program that I am a part of where a group of students in this program sign up to volunteer as often as they wish. Those who volunteer stay in the library until 3 am. If any other students in the library don't feel comfortable walking back to their dorm or car, two members of Walk Home Cocky will walk them there so everyone feels safe and protected.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Not the best value, but one of the nicest dorms on campus. It was very nice being so close to classes.

5 College Sophomore

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: They have a number of security posts that alert the campus police in an emergency within reach of one another. They give you access to the phone directly to the campus police. They tell you about how to be safe and prevent yourself from being a victim from theft or other crime activities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is associated with many outside jobs and companies. One being the military government which they handle a number of research and development projects for the Apache helicopter. I believe companies look forward to working and training new USC students after graduation. They provide you with known and local internships as well as career seeking permanent positions.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I cannot speak from experience but during my orientation they spoke a lot about the campus living which sounded great and they are close to your classes. They also offer a shuttle bus that takes you around and all through campus. My fiancé had a dorm there and they kept if very safe and seemed clean. A little small but that was expected.

4 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit is encouraged and students seem to enjoy getting involved in sporting activities and attending games of all sorts. The athletic department is pretty huge and some of the best players come from this school to advance their careers. They take pride and recommend a healthy living by attending the gym regularly with a gym suited for all people and with a variety of equipment.

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.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
