My brother is moving to Columbia, South Carolina for school at USC and would really appreciate your input on a safe place to live and enjoy the city for at least 4 years.

My brother is in mid 20s, hip, down to earth, conservative yet progressive minded, metrosexual, doctoral candidate-to-be at USC. Ok, that sounded like I am pimping my brother, but he is trying to find information about the city so he can find a safe, clean, place to live where he can quietly study, read and do his research. I would really appreciate any suggestions on nice places to hangout as well(cafe, etc), a clean bar for grad students, restaurants for good home cooked meal, perhaps, or anything. He is open to new experiences coming from a big city and hope to get familiar with the city a bit before he moves down there. We'd also appreciate any recommendations on health clubs, hobbie organizations, sports, etc.
He's been told that he can get a one bedroom house for as little as 300 bucks but I am afraid that could be in a shady part of town...(although this could likely be a huge generalization).
Thank you in advance for all your input.
