South Carolina Honors College


Jackson Stanton

Ask me about... Pre-Law, the Carolina Band, getting involved, and business!

I am a sophomore from Clover, South Carolina and I’m majoring in Real Estate. My interests include music, history, and all things South Carolina. In the future, I hope to go to law school, and currently I work in Columbia as a law firm assistant. Aside from law, I also love working with prospective students and, in addition to being an Honors Ambassador, I have served as a Preston Ambassador as well as a University Ambassador.

 

I love: I bleed garnet and black and you’ll hardly see me out of Carolina clothing I love the University of South Carolina. It sounds cliché but it’s extremely true.

 

My weakness: I can’t say no. It’s really hard for me to tell someone I can’t do something and this usually leads me to being incredibly busy and can take away from time that I should be spending with friends or family.

 

I’m motivated by: My older sisters. They’re people I look up to and really push what is expected of me by my parents. My sisters are also the people that I can look to for advice or call when I’m doubting myself.

 

My dream job: To become a judge. Being able to preside over cases and make judgements seems thrilling. I would also love to practice some form of constitutional law.  

 

My life goal: To make some kind of difference in the world. This doesn’t have to be a huge difference, just as long as I know I’ve impacted somebody’s life.

 

My advice for prospective students: Don’t be afraid about coming to college or getting involved. Also, make the college decision on your own and pick what feels most like home.

 

My advice for current students: Live it up and cherish the short few years you have at USC.

 

My favorite thing about the Honors College: I love the small class sizes and being able to get to know my professors personally. This allows me to make better connections and have professors that will know my name by the second week of classes.

 

My reason for choosing the SCHC: While I loved the culture of a big campus, I still wanted that intimate attention from professors that are offered at small colleges. By being in the Honors College, I am able to benefit from both the large university’s amenities as well as the special attention that accompanies small class sizes.
