USC is a beautiful campus once you are on the campus and parked. It has many interesting things to do. We have had wedding receptions there, which were beautifully done. We go to football games and tailgate, which is wonderful.

We visited the campus of USC in downtown Los Angeles so kids in our group could see the famous School and see what the campus looked like. It's a beautiful school. Smaller and more compact than I'd imagined.

Of course, the campus is beautiful, but it is also home to some of the best faculty in the country. Wonderful event hosted by USC and the BHBA - Entertainment Law Symposium.
