Were visiting with my daughter who is interested in going to film school. All I can say is Wow! George Lucas and Steven Speilberg have helped make USC a small Hollywood. The state of the art facility is not jyst beautiful but superior to anything else we have seen.

USC is one of the most respected institutions of higher learning in the nation; and the USC campus is one of the most beautiful university campuses in California.

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!
