“First college library in the U.S. ”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

The historic Horseshoe is one of the most evocative places you'll ever see on an American university campus. This old woman cherishes the memories, is grateful for the excellent College of Journalism and Honors program, and still yells "Go 'Cocks!" at an embarassing volume at the merest hint of a good reason, having been a fan long before it was fun. Keep Calm & Trust the Visor! It's good to be a Gamecock.

“Huge school”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Nice school but the campus is all over the place. Not a good flow at all. The high rise dorms resembled the projects with even gates on the upper floors. Nice school with great programs but the campus wasn't welcoming at all and we were there during an open house.
