    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    U101 provides a safe environment to discuss whatever you feel like along with teaching you some valuable life lessons. When I had some issues with my roommate, my U101 class helped me analyze the problem and offered potential solutions they felt might work. My U101 class also showed me how to request and claim tickets for sporting events. U101 just puts you in a supportive, helpful environment which is super helpful considering the fact that we are all out on our own for the first time in our lives.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about USC. You have to go through a lot of seminars but they are all super helpful in their own way. I learned about studying abroad, the Student Success Center, the Career Center, the Thomas Cooper Library, the "Top 10 ways to get kicked out of USC", the Carolinian Creed, some of the ghost stories pertaining to USC, tailgating, football games- honestly, the list just goes on and on. U101 is definitely a course that is worth your while because you really do learn a lot about where you will be spending the next four years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your assignments. There are not a ton, they are not hard, but they come up quick. Do them ahead of time and be safe instead of panicking an hour before class because you forgot and now you are in a time crunch to get it done.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    At first I was hesitant about "wasting my time" with a U101 class, but after only one day, I was glad I enrolled. I was a part of my dorm's specific section and was able to meet so many of my neighbors that I had not met during orientation or move-in. These classmates turned out to be some of the closest friends I made in college and couldn't imagine not having met them by not taking U101.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was that it reviewed the interworkings of college life and the campus. USC Columbia is a large, wide-spread campus with so many different things to do and see. I am grateful that I learned all about my school and campus in this class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    TAKE IT! And take a section tailored to you if possible, Dorm, Major, etc. You can't go wrong.
