Due to our weather always flip-floping from being super warm day to its time to put on some snow boots to stay warm doesn't really affect us from attending classes. Because we are in the south and we rarely get snow, if it snows classes are canceled due to us Southerns do not know how to travel in that kind of weather

Guys & Girls:
Young men at Carolina are usually preppy guys that tend to be Southern gentlemen mainly Frat boys and then you have the average guys who just come to class to get a grade others are either hood or laid back but still attractive. For women, would stay we tend to be Southern belles at school even some girls wear heels to class everyday.

They give it a nice go. Some things are certainly better than others. The salad bar offers a great variety of toppings and you can pick as many as you like. There is also a healthy options counter. It tends to cook meat and fish to the consistency of rubber. They take steps every year to improve and their sustainability efforts deserve notice.

Health & Safety:
USC is always taking steps to improve security. I feel extremely safe in dorms and I am fairly comfortable at night. It is important to stay out of five points after dark. Once you leave campus, the safety risks greatly increase. USC does an okay job of alerting students if there is an incident.

They know you are in college and completely abuse it. If something ever wasn't right I had to get my parents involved before they take you seriously. I doubt it is much different than other campuses. Don't live in the woodlands if you value your possessions and sanity.

Columbia offers a wide selection of cuisines and price points. South Carolina also offers two restaurant weeks throughout the year. It makes it easy to eat somewhere nice while on a budget. I love eating out in Columbia! Check out the happy hour at tsunami and download the campus special app for even more discounts. Pawley's Front Porch was featured on the food network and has half off burgers for Tuesdays happy hour.

At USC, there is a lot of nice weather. It has recently been raining a lot and I hope that is not permanent. There aren't too many shelters to hide from the rain on campus. The Springs and Falls are nice and sunny most of the time. However, Summer classes can get annoying with that hot and humid weather while commuting between classes.

Diversity is huge at the University of South Carolina. There are a lot of students who come and study from abroad. There are also a lot of clubs and organizations directed toward diversity. We recently had a reenactment of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement on campus.

The school spirit is great, and the fan support from non-students and alumni from surrounding areas are amazing. The athletics department, particularly the football and baseball programs, is what influences the reputation of our school. Although we have lost a few games already this season, we have a program that generates money for not only athletics, but money for the University as well.

I love it because this field has so many opportunities after graduation. You will be sure to get a good job. The school offers many different internship opportunities for you and the advisors are also very helpful when it comes to preparing you for graduation.

It was quite easy getting into my major. Criminal Justice is my passion and the experienced professors provide me with useful and adequate knowledge. My tip would be to study hard and befriend an upperclassman to assist you if you find trouble and also visit your professor, they like it when you come to their office.

We have to take a drug awareness video before enrolling in classes which is mandatory. So people are aware, yet some do not care.

Gamecock Football is what USC surrounds itself with. If you're looking to go to an amazing school, where the tailgating and fans are crazy. You have came to the right place!

My experience was terrible because I lived in the old Woman's Quad. However, they are actually rebuilding the woman's quad completely so it should be brand new and amazing!
College Sophomore 2013-10-02T13:15:40Z
We are very strict with academic integrity. If a teacher thinks you're cheating - then you're probably going to be on academic probation.
College Sophomore 2013-10-02T13:14:46Z
Not many students know about the system. Therefore, everyone walks back to the dorms. It's very dangerous to do so because Columbia, at night, is not a safe area.
College Senior 2013-09-30T21:42:07Z
There are so many different racial and ethnicity backgrounds around campus.
College Senior 2013-09-30T21:40:25Z
I've been here four years, never seen any drug related activity on campus or support for such.
College Junior 2013-09-15T19:40:14Z
The campus is diverse, and students still need to be more accepting of people of different race.
College Junior 2013-09-15T19:36:47Z
The campus provides comfortable dorms to many of its students. In addition, there is a bus system that will provide transportation to and from classes to students who live off campus.

USC has a quality athletics department that offers something for everyone. We even have a Quiditch team for the sportier fans of "Harry Potter" books and films. Varsity football at USC has a rich and colorful background. It is said that historically, the men of the Columbia area were at war with a group from the northern part of South Carolina over a territory dispute. The war went on for many years until both groups became tired of sending home dead soldiers. They set down their weapons and agreed to finally settle the matter through sport. That sport was football. Those two groups became the USC Gamecocks and its rival (who we do not name.) That war continues today.

There are lots of great places on or near campus to find some of the comforts of home away from home. In the food court there is one restaurant that cooks a different home-cooked dinner every day. The library is open day and night and provides a calm environment for study. USC's gardens and fountains are a peaceful retreat between classes where students can catch up with their homework or meet up with friends. The computer labs are state of the art with the newest software for every application on campus; math, science, and computer technology.

Health & Safety:
Campus security is top notch. There are emergency outposts where security can be reached day or night. Shuttles and buses keep students moving on and off campus for safe relay to and from housing. USC is very active in maintaining a safe environment for education.
College Sophomore 2013-09-04T02:53:44Z
USC is a huge campus with beautiful pathways to classes... a great mix of old ornate buildings among newer more modern facilities and top of the line technology. The four-story library is an oasis on the bustling campus. The school is the heart of downtown Columbia, SC and it pulses with a rhythm of excitement and anticipation - especially on game days.

Greek life plays a big role at University of South Carolina. All the different sororities support different charities and it is an awesome way to get to meet people. Fraternities are not as big of a deal as sororities here.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
