12 Reasons Why You Should Attend College In The South

Originally from the Midwest, the best decision I ever made was when I decided to go to school at the University of South Carolina. The south as always appealed to me, and when choosing between universities this was the perfect opportunity to experience something I never had before. Now a junior at USC, I know, without a doubt, that going to college in the south is the absolute best. Whether you attend USC, Alabama, Georgia, Auburn or Ole Miss you’ll have the best time of your life, and here’s why.12 Reasons Why You Should Attend College In The South

  1. SEC football isn’t just a sport; it’s a way of life. In the south, football is a religion and every Saturday is a holy day.
  2. Dressing up for football games is foreign to most, but in the south, cowboy boots, dresses, and bowties are essential for game day.
  3. Football tailgates in the south are something you have to experience for yourself. Once you go to one, you’ll wonder why people still go to school in the north.
  4. The weather is perfect. You have 7 months of warm weather, and then a mild winter.
  5. School shuts down in the winter time if there is a mere chance that it’ll snow. Seriously, no one has any idea what to do when it snows.
  6. Bojangles’ chicken selects are life changing. My first day at USC was one for the books. I remember moving into my dorm, and later that night going to First Night Carolina at Williams Brice Stadium. Right across the street from the stadium was a Bojangles. My roommate asked me if there were Bojnalges up north, and I of course said no. She immediately took off in the direction of Bojangles. It was closed but she marched right up to the drive through window and knocked on it. Somehow she convinced them to serve us, and made me try their chicken selects. Since then I have been a loyal costumer.12 Reasons Why You Should Attend College In The South

  12. Those who go to school in the south always have the best stories, the best experiences, and are the envy of everyone else. It’s as simple as that.
