We asked Mr. Thompson to share some of his thoughts about USC Union. “USC Union means a lot to me. My experience here truly impacted my years in college. It helped me to be better equipped when I transferred to Upstate. I had no fear or worries, and I lost my need to procrastinate.” He continued to say, “USC Union prepared me for my future by providing me with skills that I now use in my career field. Attending USC-Union I was able to become better organized, my time management was improved, and I got better at reading to learn new things.”
When asked if he had any advice for current or prospective students he said, “The advice that I would give to newly enrolled students would simply be to just breathe. Take each day one at a time and put forth your best effort. If you do those things, you will succeed in your years at college.”
