  • I am a current student here

    I LOVE being a Carolina Gamecock. I love walking around campus and meeting new people. I have also thoroughly enjoyed attending our home football games. Being in the student section and going wild when we score has been the highlight of my semester. I have also really enjoyed taking advantage of some of the school sponsored activities such as a FREE Josh Turner concert for students only, How great is that? I really look forward to the upcoming semester at USC.

    I enjoy being on this campus and atmosphere! The campus provides a large variety of organizations, events, and dining. The campus is always peaceful and calm, filled with trees and grass everywhere. The only issue is, there are also plenty of squirrels and birds everywhere on campus, due to the large amount of trees present. But this problem isn't too much of an issue, eventually you'll get used to seeing animals everywhere. The students, staff, and Resident mentors are all friendly and kind. Everyone is nice to one another, and courtesy is always the priority of everyone here at USC.
