Parking is somewhat limited due to the amount of students with vehicles.

I am not one for much diversity, but there is plenty of it here and it is a good thing that everyone can fit in.

I have my own computer so I do not use the schools computers much. The few times I have, they seemed to work well and had no problems, but I have not used them enough to give a good review.

The food is very good and I was personally impressed by the quality of it. I thought that my college food life was going to be full of fast food and mystery meat. It is actually very healthy and well cooked. I can't find much to complain about. My personal favorite is the Greek food place called Santorinis in the Russell House.

There is in-state student scholarships, however, despite huge financial help I'm not really digging the USC experience. Therefore, I'm looking for transferring elsewhere.

Policy enforcement is pretty much strict here. If any alcohol affiliated objects are in your room during room check you get fined $250. However, there's barely any room checks in my dorm. It's usually depends mostly on ur RM.

I rarely see diversity at University of South Carolina. The minority groups however tend to hang out and are pretty tight knit with each other. LGBT group usually have random events on campus. Religion in the school is pretty much Christian-affiliated.

I am in the college of Arts and Sciences as a Dance Performance major. We get excellent instruction and training from the professors who were accomplished professional dancers at New York City Ballet and Boston Ballet. The director genuinely cares about every dancer and is constantly looking for new ways to improve the curriculum. There are many opportunities to work with guest choreographers, and for students to choreograph on other students. There are two professional ballet companies in Columbia and several modern dance companies that hire graduates.

Sports at USC are huge! Our football team is amazing and the games are so much fun to watch. The whole campus is rowdy on game days and there is so much school spirit! Everyone always tailgates before the games which is really fun.

Every time I have gone out with my friends, I have seen drug and alcohol use by students. Although not everyone is doing it, you can definitely spot people who are.
College Sophomore 2012-12-17T17:36:08Z
I have seen quite a diverse student body so far during my time at USC. I haven't seen any problems personally. As we are all in college, we all have a certain level of tolerance and acceptance of others. Any issues I have seen are everyday banter that is generally solved by arguing it out then walking away.

Public transportation is provided for on campus travel. Shuttles are available to get around campus, and even to some off campus housing areas, depending on where you are located. There are parking garages and lots for those who bring cars, but it is better to pay for a spot than to chance waiting for parking meters. It is a walkable campus, so walking is also a good way to get where you're going. Bikes, mopeds, and longboards/skateboards are also a favored way of travelling.

School policies on drinking and drugs have been enforced and have become stricter. Fines for being caught with either have been raised from $50 to $250 for drinking and $350 for drugs. The university is determined to lessen these issues and make the environment better for everyone.
College Sophomore 2012-12-15T05:00:39Z
There are a lot of awesome things on campus that set us apart from other universities. We have the horseshoe which is where our campus started. There is an old library on the horseshoe that has tons of old original pieces of work and books in there. And the most rare thing is we have a grave on campus that is one of our presidents of the university.
College Sophomore 2012-12-15T04:57:28Z
We have all different kinds of diversity on campus. We have people from all over the U.S. as well as international students. We have LGBT programs and clubs as well as different clubs for the international students.

Campus housing is good. I stay in Patterson and it's only a couple of years old. Janitors are in the dorms all day cleaning and every couple of weeks they come in and clean your sink and bathroom.
College Sophomore 2012-12-13T18:53:26Z
The campus is more spread across thecity than most campuses
College Sophomore 2012-12-12T22:02:32Z
I love Columbia i think that it is a great city to have a university in. Its not too big and its not too small. I love it.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on Carolina's campus. There have been times when i walk home from the library at 3am, and i feel perfectly safe, not to mention i live in the dorm furthest from campus. If anything dyer happens on campus you receive crime alerts to your university email.

Guys & Girls:
At the University of South Carolina most of the guys are very polite and very down to earth. You can almost find any type of guy imaginable here because of how big our student body is. The guys in general here are for the most part very handsome. There are a lot of sorority girls here, and when i mean a lot, i mean you can point them out all around campus. They are all for the most part pretty attractive, and most of them are pretty down to earth. However theres always the exception.

Nothing compares to Gamecock football. Game day is city-wide holiday, tailgates are amazing and nothing beats sandstorm in William's Brice
College Sophomore 2012-12-12T19:07:38Z
Academics are challenging but all professors are willing to help, especially if you get to know them. There are also plenty of tutoring and mentoring if you are having difficulty in a class
College Sophomore 2012-12-12T19:05:18Z
Greek life makes up a good majority of parties and events, but even if you don't rush there is still plenty to do! Greek life is more important for a guy than girls, girls can get in to any party or tailgate, its a little more difficult for the boys

At USC all of the facilities are great! My favorite is the Thomas Cooper Library.
Recent Alumnus 2012-12-12T15:21:11Z
I didn't have a chance to live on campus because there was no space available. We need to expand. From what I have seen, most of the dorms are nice, but they could use a lot more space.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
