    Faculty, staff, and students truly make the University feel like a home to any student, welcoming them at first encounter, though considering it is a small university where you are known by your first name. The weather is perfect- the sun is shining on most days out of the year. The beach is thirty minutes away and Georgia border is only fifteen minutes away. Also, Walmart is right across the street to provide for your most essential needs!

    I love being at this University! USCB is tucked away in the small city of Okatie that is surrounded by palm trees, and there are beautiful beaches all around. The amenities are up-kept very well, and there are many activities to engage in here.If you are someone who enjoys peace and tranquility, this is the place for you!

    While the education is great as well as the professors the activities offered to students are very limited. They do not have many extracurricular activities. They do attempt to offer things for students but not too often and what they plan is not well suited for every student.

    The campus is small enough for people to interact with those who attend this college. It feels like everybody is comfortable with everybody. There is a group for everyone here. The staff always have a welcoming smile and are hold conversations with students. This is a campus that will make one feel welcomed and at home.
