It seems impossible for students to categorize the teachers at here as good or bad. The difficulty is that the students have a range of preferences when it comes to teaching methods. While some think that the best teachers are the ones that give them an easy A, others prefer a challenge. Some prefer a lecture format and others find a Socratic-style question-and-answer session more stimulating. There are all kinds of teachers with varying teaching methods and levels of personal involvement with the students, and many students use www.ratemyprofessor.com to decide which professors to take when signing up for classes. Academic advisers are helpful when trying to find out information about particular teachers, but sometimes students are forced to rely on word of mouth and independent research to find out what teachers will best meet their needs.
There are multiple programs favorable to students excelling in their academic pursuits. The Honors College provides academic opportunities for students who qualify, offering challenging courses with the best teachers, seminars, and perks such as better on-campus housing. Similarly, students accepted to the Capstone Scholars Program enjoy special housing and opportunities to study abroad. The University 101 Program—a nationally renowned college introductory class open only to freshman—teaches students how to adapt to the university environment while they earn class credit. Students can also choose to be a part of one of USC’s nationally ranked programs like international business and marine science. This is an exciting time to be attending the University of South Carolina because of the growth and changes being made. Ultimately, the education you receive here depends on the effort you put forth, but the means of obtaining an excellent education is definitely there for those who desire to take advantage.
