We visited the USC campus as part of an official college visit for our high school age son. (Visitor parking was $10, fyi.) The tour lasted 2 hours and consisted of a talk from one of the school's admissions officers and then a walking tour led by one of USC's students. The admissions officer had some great info about the... More

There is a new Cinematic Arts Complex which is beautiful and around the corner is the Shrine Auditorium where several award ceremonies (SAG awards) are held. The streets surrounding the campus have many different styles of housing from Victorian homes to more contemporary. Worth a stop if... More

This should be listed as an attraction. This was a family friendly event and it was an excellent value especially if you have children. They did not sell alcohol and children's tickets were discounted. Easy $10 parking is located across the street. The venue was not very full but I could imagine what it would be like with a packed...

I like the campus as I'm 1 of Trojan family. u can buy lots of USC clothes in the bookstore. USC has teamed up with Nike, under armour, Columbia, brooks brothers in the USC clothes. U will find the collections amazing. I have bought more than 10 sweaters and jackets in 2 years. I still feel I need to go... More
