What are the academics like at your school?
They are average. USC isn’t known for it’s education program, but the program itself is very good. The College of Education is filled with some of the most benevolent people I’ve ever met and the professors will bend over backwards for you.
What is the Greek scene/nightlife like?
Huge. You can find a party every weekend whether on- or off-campus. Sporting events dominate the weekends.
Describe the housing options at your school.
The dorms are alright from what I know. I’ve lived off campus since I’ve been in attendance. That being said, off-campus housing is usually great and safe.
What do students complain about most?
Safety of Columbia. It’s vital to stay in large groups and never go anywhere alone at night. We’ve had some tragedies happen to some innocent students, especially this past year, and it has shaken the school.
Describe the students at your school.
The school is so large that it is hard to put the student body into specific categories. I’d say anyone can find their niche.
What are the dining options on campus and off campus?
Multiple dining halls on campus, food in the student center, and many food places in walking distance of campus.
What is your overall opinion of your school?
Amazing. Go ‘Cocks.
