Coordination can make most of USC’s offerings (editorial)
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE between a higher education system that tries to be all things to all people — thus wasting public resources on an impossible goal — and a system that employs its resources strategically, for the benefit of the state as a whole. It seems the University of South Carolina and President Andrew Sorensen are moving, appropriately, toward establishing the latter. The most obvious example of this strategy is the renaming of USC Spartanburg as USC Upstate. The change defused regional tensions that were leading some to call for a “USC Greenville.” Civic pride has its place. But moving toward one four-year USC campus per city is hardly necessary in our small state.

Safety a burning issue for college students; Candles, hot plates among dorm fire hazards
...The Citadel expects 750 freshmen this year, with an overall enrollment surpassing 2,000, said Pat McArver, spokeswoman. Those freshmen don't get to bring much at all, not even televisions or microwaves. While McArver said she's sure the rule is probably safety related, the main reason is that the rooms are too small for extra appliances. "It's a space limitation," McArver said. "They have to use their space very efficiently."
