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.

I was visiting the USC campus because I'm considering USC as my future college. I was able to talk to an admissions officer. She told me, that the average SAT scores of the attending freshman year 2013-14 was 1,950 to 2,250 which is almost an ivy league required score. In addition the Grade Point Average (GPA) was 4.0 out of... More

Hands down USC is the greatest and the most expensive University to attend, but it is a beautiful campus and if your lucky enough to go here or if you just are stopping by, its one of the rare west coast campuses who's architecture, programs and schools can easily compete with any elite school from back east.
