What Other Students are Saying...
"The staff at USC Upstate, especially Dr. Tina Herzberg, have gone above and beyond to make my entrance into the program and this career field a smooth transition. From assistance with registering to answering questions about specific eye conditions or evaluations, they have always been hepful, informative, and uplifting.  I have attended two other USC campuses and the folks here at USC Upstate are the best!"
