Upstate Experience

Why USC Upstate? USC Upstate offers students a high quality education at a reasonable cost; one-hundred percent accreditation in all professional programs; and a variety of programs and organizations. Yet, it's small enough for students to receive individual attention from faculty who are committed to teaching. In fact, the average class size is only 25-30 students and the student-to-faculty ratio is just 18 to 1! Our smaller class sizes and frequent one-on-one conversations with faculty are consistently noted by students as contributors to their academic success.

Still not convinced? USC Upstate offers more than 70 clubs and organizations where you can get involved and meet new people around campus. Join one of our leadership programs, attend our multicultural programs, or get involved with Greek life, the Campus Activities Board, or Student Government. From academic and professional organizations to honorary and faith-based organizations to performance and special interest organizations, there is something for everyone! We believe in promoting student success through campus involvement and leadership development. Research shows that co-curricular involvement promotes academic success and leadership development, while also encouraging students to connect to the greater campus community as they persist towards graduation. For more information on student life, contact us at (864) 503-5122 or  stulife@uscupstate.edu

Have you considered living on campus to get the full Upstate Experience? Housing and Residential Life offers three affordable housing options for on-campus living: the Magnolia House (for freshmen only), the Palmetto House (for freshmen and upperclassmen) and the Villas (for upperclassmen only). All residence halls are easily accessible to campus facilities, including the Wellness Center and other recreational facilities. Studies continue to show that students who live on campus tend to have a higher graduation rate, a higher grade point average and a stronger bond with the University. For more information on housing, residential life and campus activities, contact us at 864- 503-5422 or hrl@uscupstate.edu.

USC Upstate is an exciting place to be, and we hope you will join us as a proud Spartan!
