Enjoyed parents weekend recently and was able to learn a bit about this beautiful university and campus. Lovely grounds well manicured and cared for with stellar facilities and buildings. Fountains and eateries on campus including Starbucks. Enjoyed watching a classical guitar class. Attended some engineering classes-really impressed with the caliber of offerings and the Trojan spirit. Make sure to see... More

We walked through and had a look around Campus on our way to the USC v Colarado football game and it was a great experience! The atmosphere, student activities and festivities taking place made me wish I had come over earlier to study! Nothing like what you can imagine from what we have at home in Australia. The movies don't... More

USC has a really gorgeous campus, and its reputation just gets better and better. It was once known as the University of Spoiled Children, but no longer!

Being a UK UNI scholar i have felt it a duty to visit as many US west coast unis as possible. Comparing to this to UK uni's is night and day, the pride taken by the students at these US univeristy is inspiring and creates a thrilling social atmosphere. Walking around the campus is beautiful, and is a great delve... More

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. I highly recommend taking a walking tour of the campus. Over the years, many movies have been filmed at USC including "The Graduate" and "Forrest Gump". USC also boasts of many celebrity... More

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
