I think these two locations would be of interest to the general public. First heritage hall for those who have an interest in college football you will get to see a heisman trophy up close. Also, a number of other collegiate awards are showcased in the main hall. The school of film has extensive exhibits from the movie business. Inside the buildings are posters from a number of classic movies so its worth browsing

The buildings and water features alone makes USC campus worth a trip - its right across from the science center and you walk through a brilliant rose garden before you enter this campus, wonder around and enjoy lunch in the campus tutor center.

I was visiting the USC campus because I'm considering USC as my future college. I was able to talk to an admissions officer. She told me, that the average SAT scores of the attending freshman year 2013-14 was 1,950 to 2,250 which is almost an ivy league required score. In addition the Grade Point Average (GPA) was 4.0 out of a 5-point system. USC is a very competitive and selective school. The faculty student ratio is 9:1 even though they have 40,000 students enrolled out of which 18,000 are undergraduate students. The average class size is 26. The annual tuition fee is $ 48,000. If you apply (using common app) before December, 1st you are automatically considered for the scholarship program. Otherwise the application deadline is January, 15th. The campus is unbelievable! They have a great film school, solid business and engineering programs and an amazing library. USC is, besides UC Berkeley, the oldest school in California; founded in 1880. There are often movie scenes shot on campus. The campus is well maintained and very clean. Great Place!!

Hands down USC is the greatest and the most expensive University to attend, but it is a beautiful campus and if your lucky enough to go here or if you just are stopping by, its one of the rare west coast campuses who's architecture, programs and schools can easily compete with any elite school from back east. While visiting LA you'll hear people state that they are a USC or UCLA fan, so make the best choice of the two and become a USC fan yourself.

So much to see and do on the campus and its close to the Science Center and Natural History Museum across the street and there is always some new shopping or section getting remodeled in the school or around the area, very nice place to visit or see some football.

This is such a nice University that is filled with a huge rage of majors. The school itself has so many great areas like the pool which I think is beautiful. They have really large green areas and buildings and its very clean. They also have good college sports I saw a girls basketball game and they had good plays. I think this school has a little bit for everyone who visits from intesting memorabilia in the arts department to good sports games.
