Excellent Campus In a Great Area

USC is growing with building projects at different points on campus. The school is attractive and well maintained. USC is a great asset to the Columbia area.

Did a college visit with my daughter. The campus looks great and building well maintained. Even in the winter, it still looked great. I hope to bring her back in the spring so she can see how much more beautiful it is!

Dorm room tours I visited the University of South Carolina campus in the spring of 2014 before I started going to school there as a freshman. It was my second time visiting with my mother, this time however we focused more on the aspect of touring all of the dorm options for me to live in. We had already done... More

We had the pleasure of going to a USC baseball game. This stadium is only a few years old and has great seating and tons of food vendors.

It only took one look/visit for our son to know that this was the school for him! After looking at many, many school during a 4 day road trip, the University of South Carolina stood head and shoulders above all of the schools that we visited. We were extremely impressed by their academic schools, beautiful campus, housing, caring attitudes from... More

Walk around the gardens (best in springtime) and explore the beautiful buildings and lovely architecture of the structures around the USC Horseshoe. A delightful walk around a very old part of the University. The Caroliniana Library is more beautiful inside and infrequently seen. If you get hungry, check out the McCutcheon House buffet.

The University of South Carolina is a big university with a small town feeling. The campus at USC is well laid out with most schools within easy walking distance. The Horseshoe is beautiful and connects most of the buildings. There is plenty to do both on and off campus. Campus security is always present and security cameras and call boxes... More
