Guys & Girls: You are going to find that there are quite a few nasty people and many nice people. Are they hot? Of course! What school doesn't have hot people? You will find people that you like to hang out with from the dorms, classes, organizations, and all sorts of other ways. There are so many ways to meet people here.

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are hot . . . and a little shallow.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: I will say that the guys at USC are mostly hot, especially the frat guys. Guys at USC are pretty arrogant, though. Just warning you. The girls are all pretty hot, too. It's common knowledge that a girl from USC will be in demand at any other campus in the nation but could have a hard time finding a guy at USC. It's mostly because everybody's cute and smart. There's a lot of eye candy here.

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are both hot. We definitely have a beautiful campus people-wise. Actually, most of us think that the non-frat guys are cuter than the frat guys. It's all individual opinion. Also, some people dress up very stylish to go to class, and other people wear warm-ups.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: The girls are super-hot here. I, truthfully, see some of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. The guys are good looking, too. The people at USC are, overall, good-looking. It's a semi-rich school, so a decent amount of people who go here keep their looks up very well.

Guys & Girls: USC is getting uglier as it gets smarter. Seriously. It's funny and sad. The Greek scene is superficial, but there are plenty of other scenes. Bottom line, there are a lot of hot girls and guys.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: I don't mean to be cocky, but USC has very beautiful people, males and females! Plus, I love how it's very diverse compared to a lot of other private schools in the United States. I meet people from So-Cal, Bay Area, out of state, and out of the country!

Guys & Girls: It's LA, so looks are everything to a lot of people. A lot of people live off of their rich parents and are kind of shallow, but then again, there are a lot of great people, too. It's a culture shock to move to LA, but it's great once you adjust.

Campus Strictness: Campus police are very loose. We are one of the only schools that serve alcohol at the stadiums for sporting events. During Homecoming and Family Weekend, booze is everywhere. There are those who don't drink, so if you don't, it's okay. Drugs have a harsh penalty if you're caught.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: They don't usually do anything about off-campus parties. If there are big problems, LAPD deals with it. If it's small, DPS takes care of it. Careful when you walk from house to house; minors in possession (MIP) citations will be given.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: They are pretty strict if you disobey the rule blatantly and if you are disturbing others.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: They are relatively relaxed about drinking. DPS is more worried about safety than about kids partying. With drugs, if you get caught, the punishment is much harsher; drinking is more of a slap on the wrist.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: USC is just as strict as any other school. People are always having parties in campus housing. Sometimes, they get caught, and sometimes, they don't. It depends on your RA and how loud you are.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: In dorms, they're strict . . . but it depends on your resident advisor.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: DPS is really strict about catching people with drugs or alcohol, but what they don't know about, they can't crack down on. Also, the Greek scene gets away with a lot on the drinking front.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: They are strict outside the home. However, if you are in your dorm or apartment, they could care less. They let you have privacy, I guess.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: They're pretty easy to get around, but if they catch you, they're jerks. You can get away with anything if you're smart about it.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: Drugs are a no-go, alcohol is possible if you're discrete and have a cool RA. DPS is always looking for something to do, so if you're being public about what you're doing, there will be paperwork. Off campus, though, LAPD has bigger things to worry about than college kids having a good time.

Weather: It's Southern California. It's always on the warm side, but during fall and winter, the nights get very cold. Your wardrobe definitely needs to be prepared for both extremes of weather.

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.
