My husband and I drove through the campus in the middle of Columbia and wished we were back in school! What a nice campus. There seem to be lots of housing and parking nearby. The Grek Village looks awesome!

The game was amazing even though it rained and they stopped the game due to lightning. We ended up watching it on a big screen at 1801! Gamecocks Won! It was truly a great experience.

If you are visiting Columbia, the USC campus definitely is worth a visit. The landscaping around the central Horseshoe is beautiful.
