I really enjoy attending USC. The school spirit and culture is so great and inclusive. The campus is beautiful and it is in downtown LA without it being super apparent that its in a huge city. Football and greek life are a big part of USC culture, but at the same time it is easy to have fun without being interested in those things. The academics are rigorous, but USC students like to work hard as well as play hard.

USC has a very diverse student body. There is a strong culture of "work hard, play hard," and students tend to be very hardworking when it comes to studies, while pursuing many extracurricular activities. This mentality also applies to the Greek life, which is very vibrant. Almost 50 percent of students are involved in some form of Greek life. As an undergraduate student of the Marshall Business school, I have been given many opportunities to grow through the student organizations and career events. The career office has been very useful to me. It offers students personality and and career tests, mock interviews, resume editing, and on-campus recruiting. Many large corporations have a strong recruiting culture at USC, and there are many opportunities made available to students.

I absolutely fell in love with USC. Their campus is such a beauty and everyone is full of school spirit. My tour guide was amazing, and so kind. She made me feel like I was already involved in the school, and that I was already one of the trojans. Not only did they offer my major, psychology, they also offer a variety of other majors, activities, and clubs. Because my uncle attended USC, I know for sure that USC is a good school, and it's always going to be my first choice.
