4 College Sophomore

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.

Overall Experience: USC is just a bloom of vast and diverse opportunities. As a transfer student, I was afraid of not being able to integrate on campus, but my transition was smoother than expected. The Trojan community here has been welcoming to me, both students and professors.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: the health center is helpful but due to the nature of greek life at usc incidents of sexual assault are fairly common

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: the older dorms lack certain amenities but ultimately the people you live with and around are the more important aspects of living on campus

4 College Junior

Greek Life: USC is an acknowledged party school and the greek life feeds that culture. it creates problems most definitely but if that is what you are interested in than the school is perfect for that

5 College Junior

Athletics: Trojan pride comes from our nationally ranked athletics. sporting events are an opportunity to bring the entire student body and rally behind our school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is campus security and the campus itself is pretty safe, but it is in a terrible part of town, so just off campus it's a bit sketchy.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school and alumni affiliations make a USC education invaluable. There are ample internship and networking possibilities. Also, Trojans hire Trojans.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a non-traditional, transfer student, my experience at USC is vastly different than the majority of the student body. I'm here for the education and networking opportunities, but not necessarily the whole "college experience." Trojans definitely like their fun, as I'm sure most college students do, but for me it comes down to the rigorous and diverse academic options. I did extensive research, both before and after getting accepted to USC and it is the only college where I can pursue all of my academic interests, from business and real estate development to music industry and PR. USC has it all and offers the opportunity to pursue up to 3 different majors. The financial aid options have been invaluable as well.

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.
