  • Columbia,USA

Established in the year 1801, the University of South Carolina (abbreviated as USC) is a public research-centric university in Columbia. Set up as South Carolina College, the institution officially began imparting education in 1805. Back then, the institution had just one building (now known as Rutledge College) housing an administrative office, academic spaces, residence hall and a chapel. It was in 1865 that the General Assembly granted it the university status and it got its current name. With sports affiliation from National Collegiate Athletic Association, 19 varsity teams of USC participate in the South-eastern Conference as Gamecocks.

USC has a beautiful 359-acre main campus in downtown Columbia and consists of state-of-the-art academic and administrative buildings, athletic facilities, university residences, dining points, parking areas, green spaces and pathways. Besides this, USC operates seven satellite campuses at different locations: Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Sumter, Union, Aiken, Beaufort and Upstate. Each of the campuses features excellent academic facilities such as modern classrooms, high-tech laboratories and lecture halls, to facilitate enhanced learning and research. The university libraries are the main source of information for learning, teaching and research. All the printed and digital resources are accessible by both students and the faculty. Other than this, the university provides free Wi-Fi and transportation services to the students. The student-run newspaper publication titled 'The Daily Gamecock', was founded in 1908 and is published during the spring semesters.
