Interviews & Information Sessions
There are many possibilities for information sessions and interviews on campus every year, which many people take advantage of. Many questions can only be answered in person, which gives prospective students the chance to get a feel for USC staff and professors before they even apply. If you cannot make it to campus, there are many information sessions and interview opportunities that occur across the country. Sign up for the mailing list and keep an eye out for a pamphlet containing this information and take advantage of it while you can.
Campus Tours
Before you make the final decision about whether you should come to USC, make an effort to visit the campus and take a tour. The USC tour guides are students who can offer various insights that can only help in your decision-making process. The tours go all over campus and stop at many places you would be interested in, and remember to ask a lot of questions! Fifty-minute walking tours are offered Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Overnight Visits
Staying overnight at USC can be a very enjoyable experience because you stay in a dorm room with a current USC student, meaning you get to live the life of a USC student until you leave. Prospective students who stay overnight learn valuable things about USC and get an insider's look at dorm life and food on campus as well as the kinds of people who go to USC. It is an invaluable experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
