Top 5 Things Gamecocks Have To Look Forward To This Semester

Forever to Thee, Gamecocks. As we all crawl back to Cola this semester, we have a few things to look forward to, other than classes of course. Columbia, the City of Dreams, that we all call home has turned up the heat and humidity to welcome us back to USC to begin another school year that we're all looking forward to after summers of working, internships, and hometowns full of parents. I have compiled a short list of the top 5 things for USC students to look forward to this semester, oh and go 'cocks!

5. Coming home to the #3 best college town in the U.S

https://mrtintinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/downtown-Columbia-SC-window-tinting-company.jpg

Livability.com has just ranked Columbia as the third best college town in the states which is definitely something to brag about. Crediting the small city with job opportunities, high salaries, plenty of entertainment, and affordable living, Columbia is a haven for college students. 

4. New apartments

http://www.elford.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/greene-05.jpg

Park Place, 612 Whaley, Greene Crossing, and The Stadium at 5 Points, are all recently built or renovated apartments in Columbia geared towards college living. With close proximity to campus, shuttle services, and clean, new units there are plenty of living options. I must say, we're pretty spoiled with so many nice, not-too-shambley college apartments.

3. Cleaned-up bars

https://twitter.com/5PointsSaloon/status/764611970117070848

5 Points is famous (maybe infamous) for its sprawling downtown littered with USC students partying Monday through Saturday nights, and it's safe to say some of the bars are a bit of a dive. According to Twitter, however, several of the bars have done some renovations and cleaning making the least classy area of Cola a bit more classy.

2. Free Darius Rucker concerts

https://twitter.com/dariusrucker/status/763511061794304000 https://twitter.com/HarrisPastides/status/763801525005197312

Darius Rucker has agreed, via Twitter promises confirmed by both the president of the university and Darius Rucker himself, to perform a free concert on the historic horseshoe. There is one condition, this will only happen after the Gamecocks get 6 football wins (see no. 1). Darius is a big Gamecock fan himself, so we will keep our fingers crossed.

1. Hopes of an solid football season

http://profootballspot.com/uploads/monthly_2015_12/resizedimage.jpg.897f84a932ec2a0fde5ee4874b8b13bc.jpg

This is a sensitive subject. Our beloved coach of 10 years, Steve Spurrier, departed the team (read: totally f***ing ghosted us) last fall when he began to see the team doing poorly (read: spiraling into L after L). Since this traumatic time, still raw in the hearts of Gamecock fans, he has been replaced with Will Muschamp of University of Florida (head) and Auburn (defensive). A solid coach with a promising background, we have high hopes for a turn around this season as USC's thousands of students migrate towards the tailgates of William's Brice Stadium decked out in garnet and black praying for a Gamecock win.

Top 75 Colleges With Overall Best Quality Of Life

When we looked at other websites to see how they did their rankings, they said they were based on students' answers to several survey questions, including how they rate the beauty, safety, and location of their campus; their campus dorms and food; their ease in getting around the campus and in dealing with the administration; the friendliness of fellow students and interaction among different student types on campus; and their overall happiness. 

Quality of Life is sort of a hodgepodge category intended to capture how much students want to go to a particular school, how much they want to stay there, and how good the school is at keeping them there once they are in.  It also measures the relative prestige of the school in terms of wealth, as well as the job opportunities available to students once they graduate by the number of companies recruiting on campus (both in terms of absolute numbers and per student). 

Because there are so many rankings that exist out there, we decided to come up with what we believe is our prime list of the top 75 overall colleges in the world for their quality of life. Here is what we came up with:

COMMENT in the comments section if you believe your college should've been ranked!

75. Temple University

74. University of Chicago

10 Reasons You Should Move Off Campus

When you move away to college, you look forward to finally living on your own, even if it's with 20 0ther people in the dorms. Living in the dorms is a great way to meet new people and make new friends, especially when you're nervous freshman finally experiencing what it feels like to be away from home. Dorm rooms have a certain charm about them, but at some point in your college career you might want to move off campus. After your freshman or even sophomore year for some, it's always better to move off campus and experience what it's like to really live on your own. Because we all know that living in the dorms still qualifies as the staff still cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming the hallways even though you're doing your own laundry. Living off campus doesn't mean you're far away; you can find a place with your friends that is still near school, if not closer.

Here are 10 reasons why you should totally move off campus:

10. Experience

You have the opportunity to practice living in the real world without having to be in the real world. You can get used to some of the responsibilities of having your own house but you can still be the irresponsible college student that you love being.

9. There are No Rules

You can basically do anything in your house without getting caught. As long as you aren't so loud that the neighbors call in noise complaints, you can have fun without any repercussions. Also, you don't ever have to wear pants.

The top 100 party schools. It's the list that every college student can't wait to see every year going into the new school year. Colleges are ranked and students jump for joy when they see their college on the list. When their school isn't on the list, it makes that college more determined than ever to have a crazy school year in hopes of getting on the list in the future. Well, we have this years ranking for the top 100 party schools. How did we conduct this research? Well, let's see. First, we looked into seeing how often the college is in the news for alcohol related arrests, crazy fraternity/house parties, and overall viral content over the last year that relates to partying. Second, we looked into seeing what a schools track record is for alcohol use. Lastly, we asked students from across the country what they had to say about alcohol use at their colleges. From all of the information we received, here's our list. Enjoy! Did your college make the list? If so, share with fellow students!

SDSU. What can we say. It may just be our new favorite college. I mean, there's a reason we ranked SDSU number ONE for having the most attractive students. We've had THOUSANDS of greek videos submitted to us to be featured on UniversityPrimetime.com, and we wanted to start off the recruitment season right with SDSU Alpha Chi Omega. After analyzing all of these videos that have been submitted to us, one video really stood out to us. That video was SDSU Alpha Chi Omega.

Ever since we moved to PB in San Diego, we've heard amazing things about this chapter.
