At a Glimpse: Columbia, South Carolina

Known as the capital of South Carolina and the home of its flagship university, the city of Columbia, South Carolina is much more than your average college town. Being placed in the middle of the state, it isn’t too much of a drive to any other major city in South Carolina. With more than 40,000 young adults in the heart of the city it is expected to be vibrant and full of many engaging memory makers.
