This is one of the older university in the country. Great ambience, trees galore and a nice feel to the entire experience. The people in South Carolina are extremely friendly and they definitely make you feel at home at USC.

Proud graduate of USC...Gamecock Alumni since 1989. A walk around campus reminiscing about the good ol' days! My heart bleeds Garnet and Black and so does the hearts of my entire family. One of the best colleges nationally and internationally for business, law, and a whole lot more. Hail Carolina... Go Cocks!!

We were here for a college tour and also included a tour of the business school and review of the honors college. This was the only college we visited that gave so many great options for tours. It is an impressive campus that is just beautiful! We hope to be back.
