We toured around the campus, enjoying the architecture as well as the landscaping. 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

As an alumnus, I LOVE USC. Since I have graduated, the grounds have become more interesting, innovative, and interesting. With the multitude of sporting teams and available events to attend, there is something for everyone. If nothing else, the Homecoming festivities are GREAT. There is such a sense of family, and it is always a great time. For prospective students/parents,... 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

When we have visitors, especially from out of the states, we like to take them to see our beautiful local "school". We have been lucky for the last several years as our grandson has the inside scoop since he is attending there for his PhD. There is lots to see, the architecture is beautiful, both old an new and the... More

While we have seen most of the campus, I had a chance to see the new buildings and inside the gym. It is awesome that USC keeps improving the campus, and surrounding area.

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!
