The USC athletic department has created a new section for students at Carolina Stadium.

Students have had an uncomfortable, grassy hill with no seats in the outfield at the stadium, a location that's lead to complaints about being able to easily view the game. 

"It makes it a lot easier to where you don't have to stand in right field all the time or sit in left field and not be able to see anything," said student David Custer.

Students will have 160 tickets for stadium seats available on a first come first serve basis when the season starts on February 17

The athletic department says it wants to increase student involvement in the baseball games.

"We were able to come up with a plan to have a student section and really just help with our overall, I guess what's the word...home field advantage," says athletic department spokesperson Andrew Kidick.

Carolina football has a student section, and Carolina basketball has the Garnet and Black Army. Student Brandon Cooper says that after two national championship wins, Carolina baseball should have a student section too.

"It's usually a little grassy open area. It's not too nice, not the most comfortable place to sit...I believe they won the championship twice. I think students deserve a place to sit," said Cooper.

Students are relieved to hear that proper stadium seats will be available to them.

"I'll definitely be going to the games this year now that they have a student section," said USC student William Dossche.
