Most students are placed with the help of the career center. I have not attempted this yet as I have two more years in college.

I only had one professor with whom I could not establish a rapport. I ended up retaking the class for a much better grade.

the classes are challenging and the professiors genuinely care about their students. There are a lot of intramural sports to keep us in shape. I have made a lot of friends at school. I love the town and always find plenty to do to keep busy when I am not studying. the beach is only an hour away. The students, professors and people who live and work in Greenville are polite, friendly and extremely helpful.
