for fifteen years I worked across the street from the internationally acclaimed business school. The students were polite and careful about not using our parking lot. I think you will receive a great education and be "proud" to call USC your alma mater.

I loved my time at USC. The campus is beautiful and historic. I love the way the campus is centered in downtown Columbia close to restaurants and other venues. The idea of having a solid, public university in the State of South Carolina is great. The school goes back to 1801 and has been working hard to educate students since.

Its a university campus dating to 1801. Mixture of pre Civil War and modern architecture. Some interesting building: Colleges located around the old "Horseshoe", The Moore School of Business, the Strom Thurmond Center, Bryce Williams football stadium, Longstreet Theater. Cooper and Caroliana Libraries.

I like all of the events that are open to the public even the book review events. McCutcheon House on campus is the restaurant connected with the School of Hospitality and serves great food at lunch Monday thru Friday. I suggest reservations.
