23 year old guy here from Midwest, relocating for my first job out of college to South Carolina. Going to be working everyday in Lugoff, but looking to live somewhere with other younger professionals. Hoping I could get some suggestions on some apartments that will be a good time with a younger crow to check out when coming down there in two weeks/

Spears Creek has a nice newer apt complex that would be a good place to check out.

Are you looking for a party-centric area, or just close to activities/things to do? If the latter, I would probably look at the apartments on/around Sparkleberry. You'd be close to work and can avoid traffic issues (you'd be just around the corner from the I20 ramps then a quick jaunt to Lugoff), and you'd be close to Sandhills & that end of Two Notch. If you're active, Sesquicentinial State Park is just minutes away. That area of Cola doesn't feel as 'suffocating' as other parts do so, depending on what part of the Midwest you're from, you may also be a bit more comfortable here.

I don't know what the "night life" is like in that area so if that's what you're looking for then you'll probably want to be downtown somewhere. Keep in mind that's going to substantially add to your commute times (and frustration) and probably cost of living
