Its easy to get in if you have the GPA to do so and also to change majors but do it early. The only downside for me is that students are required to have a minor I feel that's something that should be our choice since we have to take the classes. Professors are great and advisors and its so much to get involved in that can help you with your major and getting that early experience.

the School of Journalism is the best and widely recognized and its an honor to be apart of it. There is so much to take part in.
College Junior 2013-07-23T21:45:58Z
There are many things to chose from and you are encouraged to do well. They are one of the top schools and they surely live up to it and expect the best from their students.
College Junior 2013-07-23T21:43:49Z
They have a strong policy and many groups to keep students aware and informed.

When it rains it rains like a monsoon, but when its sunny its nice and becomes a warm summer day in November.

Columbia is a huge city and has lots to offer regarding nightlife, dining, and recreation.

My last internship it was no pay, 3 days a week, responsible for mail and phone calls incoming to the office.

I would choose the same major again. To become a government official and to assist others.

Though you will meet people from all over the country and world at the University of South Carolina, it is predominately a white school, many classes you don't even have with people of other races. We uphold a certain reputation at USC of being friendly and welcoming to all those who are interested in becoming a Gamecock. No matter what background/religion or beliefs many of us have, we will always have one thing in common .. being a Gamecock!
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T20:24:22Z
The students and staff at The University Of South Carolina are crazy about our Gamecock sports! We all put in a big effort towards showing our teams support. Football and Baseball are our most popular sports at the University. We have some of the best athletic facilities in the country, as well as a brand new Gym for the University. The University offers many opportunities for students not on Varsity teams to join IM sports.

Nightlife for the students 21+ is huge, we have Downtown Columbia, Five Points, and The Vista all within 3-5 Miles of The University Of South Carolina. A range of different night clubs and bars. For students under 21 there are many clubs that allow 18-20 year olds but very costly, so underage students usually enjoy house parties and socials with friends. The University has a free cab service for those who are to intoxicated to transport them home, all you need to do is show your Carolina Card. In other events we usually have a designated driver to transport our fellow Gamecocks home safely.

Guys & Girls:
The University Of South Carolina is like no other, guys and girls from all over the world travel to get a higher education here. The typical day to day attire for the girls is Nike shorts and a T-Shirt that usually represents the University. From day to night we transform into Southern belles, with Jack Rodgers and Vineyard Vine clothing. The University is close to many attractions, Five points and The Vista are among the most popular. The guys are all Southern gentlemen, mostly dressing in button down shirts and khakis. Carolina Football is a big deal and brings most of the college population together every weekend during the Fall, it's a great place to meet people and bond with fellow Gamecocks!

The dorm I lived in last year was awful, the rooms sucked, bathrooms sucked, strict visitation rules, etc. Also, several people did not get on campus housing this year. The housing sucks.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T00:19:54Z
Pretty good i goes, haven't had any problems so far
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T00:15:31Z
I think it's bad that you have to carry around change just to pay the parking meter
College Sophomore 2013-07-18T02:24:13Z
Places are never open when you want them. And the meal plan system they have sucks, as you can only use one meal swipe per time period (breakfast ends at 11:00 AM, lunch at 4). So, for example, if you miss breakfast by 3 minutes, you can't use your meal swipe until after 5.
College Sophomore 2013-07-18T02:22:53Z
Tons of taxis are available. During the school year, the school offers free transportation via taxis to on campus living from five points.
College Sophomore 2013-07-18T02:20:52Z
The bar scene at USC is great, with many options existing for students to go out and ease the stress of the week. Five Points offers many different bars, with different deals happening almost every night of the week, giving very affordable options to go out.

A variety of internships are offered throughout all the majors on campus. Some are paid and others are unpaid, but the experience is well worth it if you want to stand out for future employers or graduate schools. Time commitment usually averages around 10-20 hours a week depending on the major. Paid internships are usually above minimum wage, and pay also depends on the major. If you don't see any internships listed for a particular focus you're wanting to pursue, don't stop there! If there is a professor who is in that focus, don't hesitate to get in contact with them and ask them for opportunities, even if you haven't been in one of his classes before. They may not help you right away, but if you prove to be a good student who is motivated, they most likely will end up helping you out or pointing you in the right direction. Responsibilities vary on the major, but all tasks that involve applying the information you learned in your classes.

Beware of the summer heat! Even if you aren't living in Columbia for the summer, the beginning of the Fall semester offers the same, if not worse, weather. If you can't handle an immense amount of humidity, this isn't the school for you. However, this weather mostly only happens from the end of May to mid to late September. Otherwise, it rains occasionally throughout the school year. Buy rain-gear! You will definitely get good use out of them! Otherwise you can take the bus services around campus. The winters are only cold if you're from the south, but nothing too frigid. It rarely snows, maybe once or twice per year, if even that. Ice and sleet are more of a problem, but that is usually dealt with pretty easily considering classes get cancelled for snow flurries (even if it doesn't stick!). However, for the rest of the school year, the temperature and weather is perfect!

Quite frankly, it depends on the crowd of people you hang out with. And if you have a roomate who might partake in any drug-related activities, most of them won't do anything around you or at both of your place if you're not comfortable. However, drinking is more common at the University because of Five Pointes. Again, your safety primarily just depends on who you surround yourself with.
College Senior 2013-07-17T18:55:29Z
Assuming you are a sports fan or are interested in getting involved, the University of South Carolina has a lot to offer. Primarily, Football encourages tailgating for not only college students, but family as well (numerous who were previously alums themselves). I had never went to a college football game or watched college football before coming to school here, and I must say: it blew me away! The Gamecocks' games are high-spirited and offer many opportunities for the student body to get involved in chants. Lots of people like to dress up for the games, but there's nothing wrong with taking a casual approach as well! Baseball is the same way, but on a smaller scale. Also, for the athletes themselves, the university offers the largest gym facility on a college campus in the US, the Strom Thurmond Gym. Strom offers many opportunities to stay fit like the Outdoor Recreation group, a 3-story rock wall, numerous courts made for various sports, intramural sports, trainers, and fitness classes you can purchase semester passes for a small fee. While that gym is more popular, the campus also has another gym (Blatt) located on campus, as well. There is also a training facility available for all athletes!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
