Impressive campus. The landscaping is neat and clean, the buildings are beautiful, and the stadium is massive! My son took me on a driving tour of the campus. Being from Massachusetts, I'm kind of used to beautiful college campuses, but USC is truly a wonder

Visit Williams-Brice Stadium to experience one of the best and non-fluff college football experiences in the nation. The Gamecocks are a very passionate fan base and team is now almost always great. The entrance of the team is one of the best, too. The Gamecocks have real traditions, unlike other teams that have traditions "stolen" or "adopted" from other programs.

Go to the state fair and then hit the stadium for some good ole Saturday afternoon football. Nothing like having a great day of fun in South Carolina.

Walking around the quadrangle and visiting the McCutchen House for an event at the Hospitality school. The showcase for the University's highly regarded academic program was informative and energetic.
