1 College Junior

Transportation: No public transportation in LA, the rumors are true. (except the bus but it's awful and somewhat scary)

4 College Junior

Computers: It gets busy so you really should bring your own computer, but there are many and various computers available to students in the libraries.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although it has its problems, USC is the best school for the well rounded student. Olympic level athleticism meets graduate level academics and first rate arts.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Although at one point it was rather limited, it gets better every year, and with three meal halls now on campus you can usually alway find something you like. A bit expensive, but good quality, especially in terms of service.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: Frat houses are good, but exclusive. Other USC parties are frequent enough, but hit or miss, and there is only one bar off campus which has long lines and is extremely classless. However, if you really look for a good scene you can find one either in greek life or neighborhood parties.

Students from Southern California usually love USC from the beginning and strengthen their bonds with the school as time passes. Students who travel to USC from longer distances tend to adapt more slowly, dealing at first with the culture shock that inevitably comes with a first impression of LA. Universally, those who can survive the transition into the USC way of life fall in love with the school after first semester. Typically, students entering school with a skeptical mind-set ends up getting the most pride out of being a Trojan. At the very least, they come away with a new affinity toward college football.

The opportunities on campus are plentiful, and in LA, opportunities are endless. Time flies for everyone at USC, and changes in living conditions, academic standards, and career goals come quicker than newcomers might expect. USC graduates are sure to look back on a college experience that could not have been offered anywhere else. Basically, the more that students are willing to explore the opportunities available to them, the more they endorse the idea that USC is the perfect school for its time and place.
