There are a lot of different scholarships but the office never lets you really know about them
College Sophomore 2013-09-01T13:33:02Z
They have a lot of different event and are always doing things for the community
College Sophomore 2013-09-01T13:32:00Z
They have different options, but everything cost way too much and sometimes it tastes horrible.

Being located Downtown, there are a lot of different restaurants. The only bad part to this is that most of the restaurants are pricey for a college student.

Computers are up to date. Mac labs available as well as multiple PC labs

A decent sized city with lots to do. A safe atmosphere on campus.
College Senior 2013-08-30T19:14:55Z
The campus is very prompt on notifying students of any emergencies.

I've payed $80 for general student parking, I haven't been able to find a parking spot on any of the student lots since the school has started. I've tried coming during early hours and also late at night, and there are still no spots available. The only parking I've been able to find has been the Bull St. garage, and you have to pay hourly for it. I feel like buying a decal was a waste of money, and like I'm being double charged for parking.

Very amazing. Lots to do. There's Five Points, The Vista and lots of museums, shopping and night life that goes on in Columbia.

It is really hot and humid in the summer but it is nice and breezy in the winter.
College Freshman 2013-08-25T02:24:45Z
It is enforced very well, however, all of this does not seem to have an impact on students.

I've only had a couple of professors that I can remember that I felt were truly poor instructors. Most seem to have a real passion for what they are doing. All have been fair with their grading and test making as well as being available outside of class to meet with. I'd say the curriculum is pretty comprehensive and they do an adequate job of preparing us for our careers. The registration process can become very frustrating though. They give each student a specific time to log into the network to register for classes each semester, but it never fails that at least have to classes are booked for the times you need them to fit. Most of the classes are very large too.

Every year the issue at my school is that we have way too many incoming freshmen. The school always has a difficult time finding housing for all of them. There was an article in the school newspaper on the first day this year about the topic. According to the statistics only 90% of the incoming freshmen this year had a guaranteed place to live. I had a girlfriend a few years ago who was a freshmen and her dorm room ended up being a large study room that was retired to make living space. She shared this open room with three other girls and there were no privacy walls or anything. The better dorms I hear still do not have much space in them. We have a couple of dorms on the far side of campus that have been around for many many years and I frequently hear about how the elevators are out of order in them. All of the dorms can be lived in, but I would say most of them need remodeling. I believe most all of them have a commons area and they are frequently filled though. Some of the dorms can be rough, but overall I'd say most of the students are still enjoying their time spent in them.

My school has plenty of available computer labs. There are several computer stations at the school library as well as many other computer labs scattered across campus at various locations. All the software and technology is up-to-date. All the computers have flat screen monitors. I took a biology lab a year ago and in that class they were able to offer lap-tops to students that did not want to bring theirs to class. Printing is reasonable. At the school library they charge ten cents a page to print, but most of the computer labs allow students to print on up to 500 pages free of charge throughout the semester, though, those pages are only supposed to be used for specific assignments. You're not supposed to print just anything. The computer lab on the main level of the library is only crowded during the evening hours, usually after 4:00 PM or so. It's easy to find space at another computer lab though if need be. Wi-Fi is available throughout campus and I've never had any issue acquiring and maintaining any kind of connection. The internet speed is also excellent. For students who bring their own computers there are also plenty of outlets to plug chargers into and what not. Everything is really easy to use and accessible.

There are mostly fast food places within walking distance of the campus; there are a few nicer restaurants in the area, but they are generally a bit farther away.
College Junior 2013-08-20T19:09:23Z
The humidity stinks and it's pretty hot during the summer months, but overall the weather isn't too bad.

USC is a pretty large campus, and offers a lot of different places to study. Since it has a large population as well, there are a lot of different professors lecturing on the same subjects, so there's a lot of options with who can choose.
College Sophomore 2013-08-19T23:43:40Z
Parking at USC is pretty decent. The $80 a year spots are pretty far off campus and downhill, so walking from the car to class is murder. The spots that cost anywhere from $300-$360 are scattered around campus and you can get anywhere from them within 15 minutes. The negative to them is that they cost at least $300 a semester.
College Junior 2013-08-18T23:26:16Z
Parking is a nightmare. It takes forever to get a spot. You will always get a ticket if you are illegally parked if only for 5 mins

I'm not sure. This is my first year attending this university.

I have nothing but good things to say about the university. I've always wanted to go there. Now that im attending The University of South Carolina im very excited and happy to be a gamecock and wouldn't choose any other school.
Recent Alumnus 2013-08-18T16:30:10Z
Lots of computer access and availability in labs and the library. Mac and PC use available.

Internships are what you make them. Being an out of state student, I had to find my own in my home state. However, my college was very helpful in making sure I got credit and that my paperwork was ready, etc. For those who live in the area, there are tons of opportunities for internships and jobs. The University has connections in Columbia, Charlotte, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach. There are opportunities all over South Carolina as well as Georgia, North Carolina, and others.

Athletic centers are BEAUTIFUL and very nicely renovated at a steady pace. the union or Russell House is great. Students go there to eat, meet, and see events. The library is huge and there are options for all studying needs (quiet, no cell service, group areas, cafe). There are fun little quirks all around campus that make it fun and unique. The Historic Horseshoe features the original campus' buildings. It is a beautiful grassy area where students are always out on hammocks, playing frisbee, walking dogs, or laying on blankets.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
