Great place to go to College. Nothing like it! Great school and the sports rock! Such a wide variety of majors. I would highly recommend this College for anyone that wants to experience the best of everything that this school has to offer!

Not sure why this school is so underrated.......It has a beautiful campus and offers so much for the students. The business school is going to continue to get national rankings as they make great progress. Football is awesome in the fall, but it is just a part of this college experience.

But bring your walkers. This place has some hills to climb! I have been to this University many times. It really would be a great place for your kids to go to college.

Daughter graduated from USC a couple of years ago and while she was there we got in a habit of attending USC baseball. Their new stadium (so to speak) is modern and easy to attend. Good access for those with a physical challenge. Fun baseball food available. We look forward to attending a basketball game later this season.

The University of South Carolina's main campus in Columbia is beautiful. Start in The Horseshoe and you can wind your way through campus and explore the old buildings and the hidden gardens. Very good way to spend an hour!

Beautiful grounds with massive green areas great for bringing your own picnic and even a football to throw around at the "Horseshoe". Really nice library and bookstores.

My son goes to school here. At first I was disappointed he chose USC because I went to another South Carolina school (no, not Clemson). I was pleasantly surprised to see how much USC has to offer in terms of a variety of experiences and depth of education. In the end, I am glad to know how much of a... More

Liked: Lots to see and do. It has a museum on the campus. If you like college football, come here and see a game. We had a great game day experience. The stadium is huge, but a sight to see.

The campus is beautiful and offers many places for a nice scenic walk. It is safe and easy to navigate. Trees, architecture, friendly faces.
