Our boys were enthralled before entering the building. Beautiful grounds and bustling campus. Our student/tour guide was excellent and learned a lot about the school. She was a wealth of information. You do have to cross busy streets which is concerning but overall positive visit.

visited USC area and thought we'd see what the campus and sounding area was like, wow what a trashy & rundown city. The downtown area where the university is located is infested with homeless people. During our time there was some rain and the streets flooded, heard that this is a common occurrence due to old infrastructure and poor city... More

It is the home of champions, from women's basketball to baseball to equestrian and track and field. It has many cultural stops, including theater-in-the-round in Longstreet Theatre, concerts at the Colonial Life Arena and Broadway shows... More

After a tour of the South Carolina State House downtown Columbia, I was directed to the McKenzie museum and strolled through the "horseshoe" part of campus. It was a lovely spring day and students had hung up rope hammocks in the trees and were relaxing. Loved the ambiance and it was great fun to congratulate the happy students on the... More

What can I say other than make sure you visit, take in the community, and consider the value proposition of the University of South Carolina? This is one of the most important personal and economic decisions you will make. Be sure and test the complete range of academic and student life experiences of the Gamecocks.
