Off-Campus Housing: It's like any other campus I have seen, apartments are apartments and not necessarily designed to be convenient for students but the landlords are fair.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful with a blend of old and new architecture to make spaces unique and interesting. There are lots of green spaces and areas to relax and study in outside. The library is top-notch and provides a wonderful array of services for students.

Off-Campus Dining: I am a picky eater in that I just don't want any run of the mill chain place and really enjoy ethnic cuisine and there a great number of choices around campus to pick from. Most of these choices have decent prices, great food quality/presentation and a friendly atmosphere.

Academics: The professors are wonderful and have lots of real world experience that they bring into the classroom which enhances the learning achieved in a course. Almost all of the professors are great at making a personal connection with the students and interacting with them outside of office hours to bring more learning to the student. The workloads are at times high, but they make the student focus and see the end game and get everything done.

Academics: I love my major and it great because many other majors come to us to help them when they need to do research or organize information and they are not sure where to begin.

Administration: It really needs to be less strict. The police should be monitoring things in Five Points instead of busting underage drinking. They don't have their priorities straight.

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.
