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.

USC, its programs and campus are a jewel in the crown of Los Angeles. This outstanding university has created an environment, offerings to students and visitors that run the gamut of arts, science, green space and exploration galore. There is so much to do and a never ending offering experiences. Walk, stroll meander the campus, good eating spots and the... More

My daughter attended USC and loved everything about it. We love to find any reason to go back on campus even if it's just to buy some SWAG at the huge bookstore. Fight on!

Love going to the USC campus- it is very community minded and I walk on their track often for exercise. The area is constantly being developed and improved upon.

I am not sure if USC merits a special trip unless you are an Alumni, or sports fan. The campus is attractive, but is in a generally sketchy neighborhood. Exposition Park which has a number of great museums is across the street and is certainly much more worth a visit than USC. If you have the time, and you are... More

Did four years for undergrad and another for grad school here. Area may be questionable at times, but there's no question that the campus is gorgeous! Take a look around and enjoy the parks and fountains!

Nice place to walk and visit libraries to have a good read. Beautiful buildings and really old CA buildings. Close to science attraction's. I recommend to walk with someone to know the place and history's.

University of Southern California (USC) is a beautiful campus situated in the older area of Los Angeles. UCLA was down the street until they moved to the Westwood area. USC has wonderful architecture, free and low-price programs and not just for students, faculty, and staff. It is worth it to go and take a walking tour of the campus and... More

You can take certificate programs and USC; they are offered in many different areas of study and are top notch. I've taken three different courses and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. Check their offerings online.

Hawk everthing you have to send any of your children that have been accepted! You and they will never regret it. Unbelievable once in a lifetime experiences for your children & their futures. Just be sure that they acknowledge "Mom & Dad" onstage as they win their Student Academy Award; and you've gone broke paying for this Lifechanging Education :-)!
