Athletics: I am not involved in sports much. Although athletics and sports are a major part of the university

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small class sizes, professors always willing to meet with you. Great learning atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Trojan family is real. The networking opportunities are insane, and the career center is really strong.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've had great experiences with housing. Freshman housing is really special and I'll always remember my freshman floor. The dorms are very social. Cost is not ideal, but manageable, and the housing process is really smooth. I'm currently in sophomore housing off campus and absolutely love it. Spacious apartments, very cute and a really great atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life, so I can't say it's the best but my two roommates are both in sororities and absolutely love it. I'm also still very close with both of them even though I am not. Some people may tend to involve themselves exclusively in their fraternity or sorority, but most people I've met just enjoy having the resource, and still maintain friends outside of Greek involvement.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have never been a sports fan, but I love the way USC emphasizes the Trojan family. When it comes to gamedays before football games, I feel a strong sense of camaraderie that made me enjoy the sport. Even if you're not a sports fan, the atmosphere adds a positive feel to campus life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It feels extremely personal. There are opportunities everywhere and especially as an engineer we're encouraged to mix and match the parts of USC that matter to us. For me, I work on campus doing research, I'm head of a club, I'm a student ambassador, I'm in a design club and that's my life within the school. But someone else in my major is on the varsity hocket team, in totally different clubs etc. So life here feels extremely personalized and I like that. The school also has a ridiculous amount of resources for its students, at least within engineering. There is so much energy put into the well-being of the students that it always feels like you have a strong support network.

Fight on!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: USC is not located in the best part of Los Angeles, but rarely have I felt unsafe. On campus I feel completely protected and my dorm has so many security barriers it almost seems excessive. They also have security guards stationed over four blocks past campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Of the classes I have taken so far, the professors were very knowledgeable in their subject and invested in the success of their students. This especially holds true for smaller classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I already saw proof of the Trojan network within my first month at USC. I was wearing a USC jacket on an airplane and an alumni offered me a job!

Campus Housing: I live in a freshman dorm on campus, and it's definitely not as bad as I thought it would be. If you are an incoming freshman and like a more social environment, choose New/North. My dorm is pretty close to all my classes and right next to the dining hall. My only complaint is that it gets kind of loud.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is central to the social scene at USC. Many of the best parties are thrown at the frats on the row, but this is not the only place they can be found. I would definitely recommend going through recruitment if you are interested; Greek life is a great way to make new friends and find a home away from home.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
