University of South Carolina is a beautiful campus with a lively student body. Squirrels are everywhere and will steal your lunch, if you take your eyes off it. Great location to just walk around and relax.

We are from Kentucky, and went to watch a UK vs USC football game. Parked on campus, and took a shuttle over to stadium. Everyone was nice through out our time there. A nice campus.

It was so exciting seeing the stadium first hand. Our son wants to attend Columbia for college and this gave him the opportunity to see a game & explore some of the campus. His eyes lighting up was well worth it

Visited in May after graduation, so not much was happening on this beautiful campus. The campus was a combination of historic southern charm and vibrant arts and culture. I love college campuses that integrate with the city and USC does this well. Inside the bookstore...More
