     USC's campus will look a little different this fall - more people.  Lots more people.

     Over 4000 new students have been accepted this year.  Administrators are expecting to have about 3700 freshmen entering the school next fall.  But what about upperclassmen?

     "It will definitely be a problem for current students on the Columbia campus," said Joe Fortune of USC Housing Services.

      All freshmen are guaranteed housing on campus, which means about 1200 upperclassmen will be put on a waiting list for on campus housing.

     Growing class sizes also have professors worried some older buildings in need of repair might not be fit to hold so many people.
