South Carolina education program has some excellent teachers who really value your time and commitment. Since most of my peers are also full time teachers, we are able to focus in on the important subject at hand and help each other in our daily plans.

I loved my experience at the University of South Carolina. It was the place that helped me find an identity as an adult, helped me determine a career, and helped me stretch my mind beyond where I thought it could go. The atmosphere was somehow both high energy and nurturing, and the friends I made there are my friends for life.

The University of South Carolina is a top-tier public university that has a variety of majors and resources. It's a big school where a student can feel lost but also has all of the tools and resources to allow a student to be successful in whatever major they choose.

I was enrolled in the online/distance learning program, a two year program. The program was extremely conducive to my day job and other responsibilities.

The class sizes are great- I haven't had a class with more than 10 people in it so far, but that also is undesireable at times, as well. Because the program is so small, sometimes there are troubles with scheduling and making sure that everything works out. Right now I'm studying to in the Teaching Students with Specific Learning Disabilities and there's a bunch of people that aren't from the education world taking classes with me. Unfortunately that means we have to review everything I've learned in my undergrad studies already.

Columbia has a lot of neat small things to do. The education faculty are great and willing to work with you personally. Even in the most intense academic loads, I could still find time to unwind.
