Beautiful place!

I took my niece to visit the campus. The neighborhood is not the best but the campus is huge, well patrolled and stunning.

Enjoyed our self guided tour of the campus. It was holiday break so nothing was open but the bookstore. This is a nice campus and we will be back to see it when the students are in session. The Cinematic Arts buildings were especially impressive.

So many engaging lectures and things to do during family weekend. I enjoyed a lecture on Sinatra, seeing the Spirit of Troy perform and attended a USC football game.

USC is a nice place to go to. But, parking is a problem. We enjoyed her graduation for her master's degree. It's great to walk around the campus:)

It was a nice campus. The sports field was nice. I was taken a tour (available). We explored and had a picnic lunch. I learned new things. Many presidents have been to USC.

This is a fun campus, and like UCLA, it has a reputation that needs to be seen. I love campus exploring and when I get a chance, I like to see any University Campus in an area. USC is in a place that wasn't always nice. The area is cleaning up from the sad state of the 70's and 80's,... More

Spent 1 and half years here and always love the campus a lot. It is not very safe around the campus but inside is definitely very nice. Gym is awesome too! Worth going if you stop by LA.

Visit the campus of U.S.C and you will be seeing one of the best private universities in California and one of the most expensive. It's a nice tour.

As my partner got a couple of degrees from USC. It's a lovely campus (although slowly losing its open spaces as it is getting built up) set in what was (and maybe still is) a risky neighborhood dominated by gangs.
