The impact of USC's largest-ever freshman class is being felt across its downtown Columbia campus in a variety of ways, including:
Parking: A few students have taken to Facebook to complain about the difficulty of finding a place to park.
Classes: Getting into some classes has been tough because they fill up quickly.
Housing: With freshmen required to live on campus, some upperclassmen who wanted to live on campus could not find space.
Teaching loads: Some professors have been asked to take on additional classes.
Money: The large freshman class, estimated to be about 4,400, 50 more than last fall's class, could bring the university up to $3.5 million in additional revenue.
