Student Ratings

Overall Rating

What I think about South Carolina State University overall is that it is the total package institution of higher learning. When I visited the school the atmosphere was vibrant. The campus is most beautiful and easily accessible. The opportunity to see the football team in action was a nice experience as well. The feeling of comfort was there as most everybody treated you like you were an established student already.
