3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Just the usual stuff. You can find more options though than on-campus dining. So that's nice.

Scholarships: It's pretty awful. Financial aid office has been no help whatsoever. Options are also limited when it comes to receiving financial aid. Tuition fees are high, so it's not good.

Campus Food: A lot of the options are not healthy and if they are, they're expensive. It's better to eat off-campus. Cheaper and the food is better.

Campus Housing: The campus is relatively clean, but bathrooms are not clean at all, even if they make a point to clean them every morning. The amenities offered are plenty. Cost, however, is extreme, at least when you consider living in a small space with roommates.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many great off-campus housing places. The availability is pretty good and the cost varies between places to live.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are many places to go and party. Just make sure that the environment you are in suites you.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are okay. Some are far more expensive than they should be, but the food quality is pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus strictness is about where it needs to be. We can't expect them to be lenient about everything, so I think they are pretty strict about the right things. Campus housing does not tolerate alcohol in dorms, underage drinking, and too much noise. Also, the visitation policy is also strongly enforced, especially in all female dorms.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Everyone institution may have glitches with financial aid, but overall, USC does a great job with financial aid. Just make sure to apply on time and avoid doing things late.

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.
