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.

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 :-)!

Go when the marching band is practicing on the track, and you will have a great visit listening to the cheer. Avoid days when a major event is going on, as the crowds and parking problems will be annoying. A major research institution with stellar faculty, good students, and a ton to offer. If you cannot park on campus, use... More

the USC hall of fame is worth the walk around the campus. Right across from the Coliseum so easy to knock out two sites quickly
