Moved our son in this weekend as a freshman. There are many things the school offers to help make it a second home for your children. USC offers many school activities and the city has many things to keep them occupied. Should be a great experience for anybody who is accepted and chooses to go to school here.

Been on campus twice for LSU vs. USCe for Softball games. Very nice campus and loved the atmosphere of the area. People were nice and friendly to us, even though we is Tigers! Also I found the quad was the site of some Civil War activity when Sherman used the faciliteis for Union Hospitals.

Very large campus spread out over downtown Columbia. Large student body (over 20,000). Two bookstores: one in the Russell House and the SC Bookstore on Main and Greene. Columbia is the main campus; there are other campuses in Aiken, Beaufort, Spartanburg.

It was are first time to Columbia and we drove to the Stadium hoping that we would be able to walk around and maybe go inside ! But the grounds were under construction and it was all fenced off and only hard hat's allowed. My son is the biggest gamecock fan around lol He just turned 15 and is 6'4... More

You're average mega college. Lots of students, buildings, and housing. Football is huge around here and over rated. Unless you or your child plans on attending or you are a collage football nut with undying loyalty no matter how badly they play, there is nothing much to see here. Go to the zoo. At least you'll get your money's worth.

We happened to park in front of the University and I took a photo of the school's sign while on the way to watch the historic removal of the confederate flag pole being removed since we missed the flag removal. From the outside the school is beautifully bricked and well manicured.
