Governor Nikki Haley spoke to USC students about her accomplishments in office for the last term on Thursday. The USC College Republicans invited Haley to speak and to answer questions from Twitter and the audience afterwards.
Gov. Haley addressed issues such as job creation, education and the economy. Students asked a wide variety of questions, ranging from supporting the arts to the common core educational standards.
Secretary of the USC College Republicans Anna Chapman thought Haley's appearance showed she did care about students.
"We thought it was a good idea for her to come speak because students don't really... they're not really her base," she said. "But for her to come.. it's a good gesture."
Democrat Leland Williams, a second year psychology student, wasn't completely impressed with Haley's question and answer session.
"She seemed to obviously care about small businesses... but there's this thought in the back of my mind where I'm like, does she just care about the small businesses?" he asked. "Or does she actually care about the people?"
Gov. Haley allowed students to come up and take photos with her after the question and answer session. She also encouraged students go to the polls on Nov. 4 and spread the word to get out and vote.
