  • I thought the purpose of handicapped parking was to reduce the amount of distance one has to travel to a building on campus. I had to walk 80 yards with my cane to see my niece graduate today. As a 100% disabled veteran, and a two-time graduate (B.A. & MHR) from USC, I find it incredible that the plans for a parking lot would NOT place handicapped parking at the CLOSEST distance to every building on campus.
  • Staff was violent and rude. Escorted me forcefully out of the stadium AND reported me to the police for bringing a small camera to an event. On their website it clearly stated the parameters for a camera and my equipment abided by their rules but for taking a picture a guy came out grabbed my arm and yanked me away. He was yelling, spit on me and was dishonest to the police officer claiming many things that simply weren't true. Arena is great, staff is on edge. Will avoid events here in the future. I recommend just driving up to Charlotte instead.
  • Now, I liked the Carolina Colosseum a little better but that's probably more about nostalgia. Colonial Life Center is big and easy to access. It never feels insanely crowded. One warning: they don't have any activities addressing the lives of our colonial ancestors.
  • I have a great experience every time I got, whether it's Carolina basketball, concerts or kid's events. A lot of bathrooms and concession stands with quick service. Bathrooms are always clean too! Parking around the CLA is also great.
  • Went there for Frozen On Ice, the Stevie Nicks Concert and Harlem Globetrotters. Very Nice Arena,
