Guys & Girls: If you want a relationship don't come to this school.
The nice guys are the gay ones. The majority of straight guys at SC are frat boys who are only interested in sex. There is a very prevalent rape culture here so WATCH OUT. Nobody is going to take you out on a date. They harass you at parties and if you don't give them what they want, they'll find somebody who will.
In turn, if you are looking for casual hook ups look no further. USC is candyland for the sexually gregarious.

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.
