“A visit to the "old south"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Beautiful urban campus! The school has retained the refined look of the old south, mixed with the contemporary, urban look of a city in the south. Carolina love is everywhere---food, entertainment, fine living. Gamecock football rules the city in the fall. Great sport and cultural offerings year round at the Carolina Arena and Koger Center for the Arts. Well-respected academics.

“Updated Williams-Brice Stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Even with the additional seating, the foot traffic was easier to maneuver this year and that new Jumbotron is totally awesome!!

“Uniquely Suitable Collegiate Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

USC is convenient for students to navigate to and from classes. I was impressed with the security in the dorms as I had to surrender my driver's license to visit in them. The dorm where I visited was very clean, well-lit and convenient for students. This college has a security system that even transmits to parents what happens on campus!

“Lovely Campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I love to walk around here whenever I am in town. The Russell House (Student Center) has a great place in the cafeteria that makes salads. You can select everything you want in it, and they make a huge bowl, and then mix it all together and dump it on a plate. It is a great value at just over $4.00. Watch the dressing though, I couldn't eat the salad the first time because there was too much!
