USC Sumter has been named the second-best community college in South Carolina and No. 5 for best community college in the nation, but this isn't new information for those attending and working there.

This is the third year in a row the campus ranked second in the state and the second year it ranked fifth in the nation by Niche.

"Being ranked highly and recognized by Niche for their hard work further legitimizes our value to Sumter, our larger service area, and the state."
