4 College Sophomore

Academics: Engineering education is great, not Ivy-league tier but will give you endless opportunities in LA regardless.

Drug Safety: Mostly in Greek life and other very social clubs. Otherwise, I barely notice it.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: USC is very big on Greek life. As someone who is also a part of Greek Life (although not in a top tier sorority), there is a sense of cockiness by the top sororities and frats. We have a greek row of houses available so there are lots of housing options. I still enjoy being a part of Greek life though.

5 College Senior

Athletics: USC is definitely known for its football team. The spirit that Trojans have are undeniable when it comes to sports.

View student contributors

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.
