I couldn't be happier anywhere else! The student life is incredible, allowing every person to find their niche. The Greek life and parties are unbelievable, definitely adding to the college experience. Students maintain an amazing balance between their social lives and academics, which definitely has influenced me to do the same. My dream school managed to surpass my expectations.

I have absolutely no regrets about choosing to attend USC for college. I have had an unbelievable amount of support for all of my endeavors whether they be academic, sevice, or athletically oriented. There is ample funding available for me to accomplish my dreams and a diverse and intelligent student body to cooperate with to make my dreams a reality. I got in two research labs on my first day of school and even met with a business professor who offered to connect me with a patent attorney and manufacturing facilities for when I need them in the future. USC has sponsored my attendance at concerts, major sporting events, beach trips, island trips, and dinners at the president's residence. USC even funded a spring break trip for one of my classes to have an experience on a train from Moscow to eastern Siberia. This school is amazing and I have meant countless friends who I am both inspired by and glad to know. I love my school, its administration, and its students. I am proud to be a Trojan and excited to have three more years of college ahead!

I love being in a sorority, but there are some negatives to the Greek Scene. Overall, it is a positive social environment. However, people care a lot about 'rankings' and it becomes kind of cliquey. For example, guys in certain fraternities will only date girls in certain sororities, etc. It is not dominating, but there is a sort of attitude and stereotype associated with being in a 'top house.' However, being a member of a sorority at USC is a great experience within itself. The houses are beautiful, and you can live in them for much cheaper than campus dorms. The girls are great, and it is a nice way to have a group of friends, a place to hang out and study, and of course, Friday Brunches!
