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

So much to see and do. Get a guide so you can see all that is offered. See the Quad, the gamecocks stadium, the art school and it's displays.

We live around USC campus & everything associated with it costs money. Parking is ridiculous (& extremely hard to find) and their offices/housing is taking over the city.

USC is a very pretty campus that covers a large area in Columbia. Be prepared for lots of walking, hills and steps though! There is a mix of new and old buildings and lots of tradition associated with the school. People are very friendly and...More
