Don't care where you have lived, based on you comments here using 100 different names, you have a hard time with facts.
You are Vhammod or Vhammond, my Indian friend.

Clemson is ranked higher academically than USC. USC is really just for chicks who want to study English and sociology.

And, from a personal observation, parents of South Charlotte high schools like Myers Park are telling me that USC is now one of the desirable state schools to attend. That could explain why the 2017 class has about a 50/50 split between SC and non SC residents. The yield of the in liming class was higher this year meaning more folks accepted the admission offer.

On a side note, the renovations to older historic buildings look terrific.
LOL, how can you complain about CLemson charging higher tuition than SC when SC is taking half their freshman class from out of state? They just chasing that $$$$$, it's not about educating kids in this state. LOL

I wouldn't doubt if this was Darla Moore's idea.

I remember watching The Simpsons and Homer told Lisa he was going to have to punish her and she asked "You are going to send me to the University of South Carolina?"" LOL

LOL, I lived in the DC metro, they have no idea Cola exists. People in DC are refined and they seek refinement, and they could never find this in a dirty south city like Cola.

There is an alumni club pretty much anywhere for any large university so that is silly thing to bring up.

I also think that a lot of times (not all of course) students choose to go to USC or Clemson because they grew up fans and make the wrong choice for their educational goals based off of that. For me I always wanted to go to Clemson and have been a fan since I was little, but I also wanted to go into Mass Communications and felt that I would be lost at a big school so I went to Francis Marion and was able to gain much more there for what I wanted to do. As much as I love Clemson and would have loved to follow in my family's footsteps by going there, it would have been the absolute wrong decision for me.
USC business Clemson engineering is simply because Clemson started out with more engineering and technical focus and USC started out with business, and they've touted themselves for these programs, but neither one has an advantage over the other. Engineering and business is the same stuff any college you go to. USC engineering program might be better in that it is smaller and you probably get to the know the professors better than at Clemson.

I doubt you would have been lost at Clemson, your class sizes in mass communicatino aren't going to be any bigger than they were at Francis Marion. You might have a few freshman lectures with like 300 people in there but once you get into your major that won't be an issue.

USC takes many more students ever year than Clemson so makes sense they have a bigger fan base but it is defintely pretty even throughout the state. This map is a joke.
The map is based on Facebook page likes for various teams. I guess a lot of Clemson fans just don't have internet access. USC's fan base is much larger than Clemson's and the gap is widening. Here is another survey that points out the discrepancy.

I don't think number facebook likes means anything, a lot of people hate Facebook even some of the people who used to be on it all the time. All it means is SC has more fans than Clemson who use Facebook AND make a point of liking teams on there.

Nobody outside of the state outside of alumni care about SC. It's just another college.

That says more about them then about Columbia. At the very least, everyone should have learned the state capitals in elementary school.

Furthermore, a portion of Black DC natives in particular have roots in SC, due to it having been a destination city during the Great Migration--not to mention the SC natives or those otherwise affiliated with the state that have moved there more recently.

well you can say that about every city. we all got ties to somewhere else at this point.

Is it really referred to as the Great Migration? I never heard that expression before.
