South Carolina – a great place to work and live.
South Carolina offers a quality of life second to none. The state has a mild climate year round, a cost of living below the national average and some of the most affordable housing in the nation. With its five major interstates and a commercial airport within an hour of any location in the state, South Carolina offers an exceptional infrastructure that eases traffic and transportation time.
The Palmetto State is committed to retaining South Carolina’s best and brightest. The state offers several college scholarship programs to encourage higher education. More than 240,000 students are enrolled in the state’s 33 public institutions and 24 private schools. Additionally, South Carolina has three internationally recognized university research institutions and is home to one of America’s 17 U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories.
