5 College Freshman

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.

Campus Housing: There are some dorms that are less than average and some dorms that are like 5 star hotels. There are diverse options for living styles, but sometimes it is hard to get the one you want. However, It is fairly easy to move resident halls.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus. It is harder for girls to get into the sorority they want then for guys to get into fraternities. There are lots of things to get involved with within the greek community. Such as, homecoming, greek week, greek intramurals, functions, and philanthropy events.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football games are amazing and always a good time. It is highly encouraged to attend other varsity sports games, which people usually do. Intramurals are super fun and well organized and can get pretty competitive. Club sports are easy to involved but can be pretty cutthroat.

Overall Experience: I had the best time at USC. I was able to get involved, have amazing grades, and still enjoy the party scene. I joined a sorority and have thoroughly enjoyed greek life. Classes are very doable and academically pleasing.

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.
