Parents, send your children here. I almost didn't apply and I'm so glad I did. Easy to add on second majors, minors and everyone gets involved somehow. Great school spirit, great professors and a beautiful campus. Lots of resources for academic support; everyone here cultivates their own college experience

Let's be honest, the area surrounding USC is not comforting to a mom dropping her youngest daughter off at college. This summer the shootings have ringed the south central area outside the campus. But it's truly a beautiful campus, worth visiting. I felt good about the school's high standards, it appears to have thought of everything. I liked the amount... More

Nice campus/buildings, beautiful weather but visit during the day and don't wander off-campus too much!

We visited USC along with UCLA, Caltech, Stanford, Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz - and they were all wonderful. This is an amazing campus with lots of history, wonderful buildings, and great kids.

Graduation was well run. Weather was unbelievably hot! (USC could have provided shelter (covering or fans) for the audience and water stations). Beautiful University! I'm glad my daughter chose USC for her Masters program!

We visited the USC campus for it's 2014 graduation. The grounds are beautiful with towering magnolia trees, beautiful lawns and building that date back to the early 1900's. The graduation took us to several places on campus and each was decorated with typical Hollywood flare. While visiting Los Angeles, this would be a place to see.

I only spent a short period of time on the USC campus, but immediately could see why so many people love it. The brick walls and wide walkways make it feel very "college-y" and the gardens really bring the campus to life. I was there before school had started, so the atmosphere was not as great, however it is still... More

I think these two locations would be of interest to the general public. First heritage hall for those who have an interest in college football you will get to see a heisman trophy up close. Also, a number of other collegiate awards are showcased in the main hall. The school of film has extensive exhibits from the movie business. Inside... More

The buildings and water features alone makes USC campus worth a trip - its right across from the science center and you walk through a brilliant rose garden before you enter this campus, wonder around and enjoy lunch in the campus tutor center.
