What does USC Upstate mean to you?
USC Upstate is a place of excitement and enrichment for me because I am learning new and interesting things every day. I get to spend all day, 8 am to 8 pm, working in the field of mathematics and mathematical research with some of the best professors in the world. I could not have picked a better school to pursue an undergraduate degree. I only wish that USC Upstate would adopt a Master’s and Doctorate program so I could stay and enjoy this wonderful University.
This scholarship will impact my life greatly. The reason is that for the next two semesters I will have to take six classes and also work in the mathematics tutoring lab, so keeping a job outside of school will be extremely hard and may result in bad grades. The extra money from the scholarship really helps me due to the fact I am in financial need.
