USC and Other College

The University of South Carolina (USC) is located in Columbia, which is due east of West Columbia and a short drive for college students. The college receives high marks in academics with strong sports and extracurricular programs. Although barring the funny team name of Gamecocks, sports are no laughing matter to these students, with recent titles in football, baseball, and soccer. For students who live off-campus in West Columbia, a satellite facility, offers select courses to students. While USC may be the best college option, prospective college students have the choice of Midlands Technical College, West Clemson, and other colleges or universities.

Lakeside Fun

When work time comes to an end, the time for relaxing comes, and West Columbia is a great place to do it. With Lake Murray nearby, students and residents alike can kick up their feet on the sandy beaches or foot it into the fishing areas for some fly fishing. Canoeing or just chilling on the pontoon are ways to regenerate on the weekends while the beaches and grasslands make for ideal picnic settings. Even if you do not make it to Lake Murray, you can enjoy one of the many parks or simply walk the length of the river that runs through town.

The Brooks of the Lan

With most cities dubbed the west, north, east, or south of another city, the name usually comes from of a split from the original city. Not so with West Columbia, which took the given name due to proximity with the city of Columbia. Originally named Brookland, before being incorporated the area became home to mill workers. The city originally took the name of Brookland, only to change to New Brookland due to the existence of another town named Brookland. To break from both monikers, the residents voted for the change to West Columbia in 1936, and the name has remained the same since.
