Yup, we have outstanding Football.m and World-Class Academics, and an Ivy-League style Campus in the middle of the urban core of LA. A fantastic Rose Garden, and don't forget the Science Museum next door, one of several excellent museums. And yeah, the light rail stops right in front of the campus. Worth a day trip!

A really beautiful campus that every year gets prettier, too bad the surrounding neighborhood can't all be purchased and beautified.

Just saw from the outside - new building going up looks very nice - campus itself seems a bit congested but still very pretty. Only bad thing was the location - definitely not a good part of town.

A lovely campus to walk around. I don't recommend that single women do it alone, as the surrounding neighborhood is dangerous.

My alma mater, USC campus is great because the campus is walkable and everything is confined within those four streets, jefferson and expo, figueroa and vermont. One end to the other takes about 20 minutes max. Visit tommy trojan, the cinema wing area, take a picture at bovard and at VKC. Part of my tour whenever i go back to... More

USC is one of those destinations whose initials alone suffice for their identification - Yep, this is the University of dreams. I highly recommend visiting using the METRO for your transportation - avoiding LA car hassles. It's simple to park your car in one of the Free Metro lots & buy a $7.50 All Day access blue Metro cars &... More

It was very good experince to see volunteers students, usaf ans us army in international relations building (under all countries flags) while trying to introduce their carrier opportunities to new beginnin students. Beside that buildins and green parks areas in campus are very charming. We all very much enjoyed the atmosphere.
