I have never encountered a time where I couldn't find a computer to use, you may have to walk but there are SOO many computer labs it is ridiculous.

Alcoholism Over Drugs – After completing my freshman year at USC I really saw how much drinking goes on at a college campus. However, even with its presence one is able to find others around that are not into the drugs and alcohol.

Watch Out for Creeps – Five points is where you want to spend your thursday, friday, and saturday nights but stay in groups! Just keep an eye out for robbers and creepy cab drivers.

International Business – So far, my advisors have been very helpful in keeping me on track with my classes. A new business school building is in the process of being built which looks very nice but won't really be located in the center of campus. The International Business School has been ranked number 1 in the nation for several years too.

Greeks Get the Attention – Greeks dont run the school but from the non-greek perspective it sure seems like that. Pretty much everyone i know is in a sorority. They do a lot for the school and charities but they can be pretty exclusive with their themed parties and whatnot.

It's a fairly big city that has plenty of dining options. Many restaurants and great graded ones as well!

It's Amazing – University of South Carolina is the most amazing thing in the world. I have such a great time and school is fairly easy if you manage your time correctly.

Housing Off Campus – The apartments are really expensive, but at the same time affordable. Most of them are located right next to campus and most of the residents are usually students.

Pretty Good – Columbia is a great area for students and has a lot to do, but there aren't as many programs for minority students. The Vista is nice and 5 Points is nice as well, but only during the day. Crime is a very real possibility, although there are help boxes and campus security. Overall, I've had a great experience at USC and I'm definitely glad that I'm a Gamecock.

Our program is very competitive and consist of a lower and upper division in which GPA is the key factor.

there's so muc school spirit at this school; you feel it everywhere you go! football is obviously huge here-lots of tailgating. Baseball is big as well. Intramurals are popular among some students but don't dominate the school. Strom, the gym, is phenomenal.

Guys & Girls:
Girls Are Pretty – The girls on campus are all really pretty. there are good looking guys as well

Hot Alot – For a majority of the school year it is extremely hot. The weather is nice and sunny but if you have to walk more than 5 minutes to class you will be sweating. Everyone is always outside during these hot months.

Pretty Simple – I found it to be pretty easy because they sent out reminders for filling out the forms. Once you get accepted, it will send an email which makes it much less stressful. Overall, its an easy process.

Apartments Everywhere – Its pretty easy to get an apartment off campus because there are easy to come by. They have provided plenty of options for the students but they tend to fill up quickly because of the high demand for off campus housing. The other downside is that they are all usually 10-15 minutes from campus so its never walking distance.
College Junior 2012-06-02T01:46:28Z
Very Good – There are many nice options at great prices that are usually cheaper than living on campus. Just make sure you sign up for off-campus housing asap, because things tend to fill up fast.

Depends Where You Are.. My freshman dorm was absolutely disgusting, it had mold growing and I felt dirty in my own room no matter how much I cleaned. However, my friends did get placed in very nice and big rooms, compared to my shoebox sized room. I would say that upperclassman dorms are nice, but they are also pricey and are becoming harder to get because USC is accepting more and more freshman.

Harder to Stay in – For Exercise Science, it isnt hard to actually get into the major, it is hard to stay in the program. After your sophomore year, you will either be able to continue the track in Exercise Science or just take the same classes, but not be apart of the track. You have to have at least a 3.5 to stay in and need a lot of extra activities to stand above the rest.

Five Points and the Vista! We are surrounded by so many options, from Mexican to Greek to American to Italian. We have everything. Five Points has more of the bar type restaurants, but only minutes away from campus. The Vista has a lot more nice restaurants. Definitely try out Carolina Ale House, it has good options and isnt expensive!

Go Greek – Our Greek life prides itself on not only great academics (some of the highest for groups on campus), but also strong relationships, community service, and dedication to our school. Our fraternities do throw parties, but you dont have to be Greek to go to. They also hold many philanthropy events and always support sorority philanthropy events as well. Our sororities are getting bigger and bigger pledge classes- (300+) in our 9 sororities, and we are adding 3 more in the next few years.We have our own Greek village on campus where all of the sororities have houses and most of the fraternities do as well. I would say that non-Greeks respect Greeks for what they do, but may see Greeks as being too involved with each other, but thats why Greeks love it. Our Greek life holds true to its name and is definitely something to not miss our on.

A big city with the small town feel - everyone loves the Gamecocks in Columbia. The shopping in Five Points is perfect and only seconds away from the campus, we are walking distance from our stadium for Saturday SEC games, and you cant drive down the road without seeing cops - you feel more than safe here.

Dorm Living Arrangments – should be living with people in the same age group

Wifi Problem – needs stronger wifi, not everyone can make it to labs

Good for Education – Im exercise science, ou can apply to be whatever major you want when you appply for the school however, after your sophmore year you are applying ot be in upper division. Then its all about GPA

Many White – There are lots of white students who attend the university of south carolina. However this is because of the location and the fact that it is close to benedict college wich is a prodominently black school. however there is still diversity and not many people judge
Sorry, there are no reviews.
