Reasons to attend and to not attend University of South Carolina

To Attend

  • “The Greek community in itself is really strong.”
  • “The weather makes a huge difference in your mood and behavior. Having the weather be nice helps people get out and do stuff more.”
  • “Tailgates and the school spirit. There is a really fun social life.”
  • “Because it’s such a big school, you will find your people.”
  • “It’s an accepting environment for how big the school is. I’ve never felt intimidated by the size, and I’m always comfortable going to someone I’ve never met for help.”
  • “There are great organizations and a ton of resources that can help you succeed.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re someone who doesn’t know how to advocate for themselves well or doesn’t ask questions, it’s easy to get lost academically. For example, the advisors have so many kids assigned to them they only talk to the people who reach out to them.”
  • “If your learning style is in small classrooms, you may struggle in the classes because up until junior year you’re mostly in large lecture halls. If that’s hard for you, I’d consider a smaller school.”
  • “I can see how some people feel excluded if they aren’t in a Greek organization.”
  • “If you’re more interested in a tight-knit community altogether, like seeing the same people twice and having your professor know your name, I would not recommend USC.”
  • “If you don’t like a big school and feel that it’s too much of an effort to branch out, this might not be the school for you.”
