Classes are canceled, and the triennial “snowpocalypse” is upon us. Students cheer, professors palm their faces in concern over their course plan, and Northerners mock the state’s massive overreaction to the weather. A school cancellation over freezing temperatures and a meager amount of snow may seem farcical to those who grew up walking to school uphill both ways and in three feet of powder, but there is plenty of merit to this weather-imposed decision. It’s no secret that southern states unaccustomed to snow are ill equipped to handle the rare cold snap. As a result, the school must play it safe and call off classes.
We’ve written about Pets Inc. before. They’re a West Columbia animal shelter that continues to fight against hard times as it grapples with debt, a short staff, and more puppies than they know what to do with.
Finals week is always a brutal reminder just how hard college really is. You’ve made it this far into the semester, and hopefully, your grades are still intact, but you’ve got that last stretch of papers and exams before the stress is over. Throw in a job, internship applications and all the rest, and you’ve got the makings of a difficult time.
USC will be kicking off the New Year on the right note, or so it thinks, by helping everyone make the right choice. Come Jan. 1, 2014, Tobacco Free USC will take effect and all tobacco products will be banned from campus.
Five score and 17 years ago, Old MacDonald thrust his lofty pitchfork into a ravaged post-bellum farm field, striking an arbitrary rock.
The Proving Ground, USC’s competition for entrepreneurial students and their startups, concluded last night in a live presentation of the finalists.
Among USC’s countless service events is the annual Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive, which kicked off again Monday. While it’s easy to see the immediate effect of volunteering at a soup kitchen or adopting a pet from a shelter, too often, donating blood falls to the wayside.
Peter McCausland made headlines two weeks ago after his generous $10 million donation to USC’s largest school, the College of Arts and Sciences.
While the USC has an array of environmentally friendly and self-sustaining facilities, No Impact Carolina Week turns the focus to the student body and their adoption of similarly green practices.
Columbia residents clearly support Mayor Steve Benjamin and the rest of the city’s leadership, considering they all won convincing re-election bids Tuesday. While these votes of confidence show that Benjamin and his colleagues have broad support, they should not lull leaders into complacency; the city needs strong decision-makers more than ever.
Chicken Finger Wednesday not withstanding, USC is apparently pretty healthy. The university was recently ranked as the No. 26 fittest college in the nation by The Active Times. The award is judged based on fitness, health and wellness, and included evaluation of athletic facilities, team sports participation, campus eateries and overall quality of student life.
Pets Inc., a West Columbia no-kill animal shelter, is facing closure as it battles debt, an undermanned staff and a stock of animals far beyond its capacity.

Is the sky falling for our Gamecocks as we watch Jadeveon Clowney’s legacy tarnish after sitting out Saturday without warning coach Steve Spurrier?
Hello parents, and welcome to USC.
USC managed to make national news under less than ideal circumstances after a remarkable amount of students left Williams–Brice Stadium in the third quarter of the Vanderbilt game a couple weeks ago. There was a range of excuses for the mass exodus involving everything under the sun: lack of hydration, the unentertaining blowout score and quite literally being under the blistering sun for far too long.
Police found no evidence of a rape near the East Quadrangle in February. Consequently, the case was closed after the victim failed a polygraph test and provided inconsistent details regarding her alleged rape, and police leads led to dead ends. 5 The case was officially closed in August, and shortly after its closing, an online alert of the case’s status was deleted from the USC police website. No further update had been provided to the students from the police, and it wasn’t until a report of the investigation was released last week after a long delay that the information regarding the case’s closure has come to light. When Carolina Alert sent a text message about the incident back in February, many of us were scared. We were upset that USC took hours to let us know about what was going on.
At long last, steps are being taken to allow students to use their CarolinaCards off campus.
It’s no secret that USC’s housing conditions aren’t ideal, as most students are eventually forced to live off campus due to lack of accommodations on campus. On the tail end of the great migration are landlords of varying quality, from hospitable to downright malevolent.
