5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class sizes actually aren't bad. Large lectures tend to have TA's and discussion classes so you can get that small classroom interaction. There are a variety of options so you can really find a class on anything you're interested in.

Overall Experience: Our alumni network is insane and there are so many resources to be used on this campus. If you seek out the information you will find a lot of help and support.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on this campus. Most of my friends are in greek life so its hare to get the opinion of non-greeks but generally they seem indifferent or that it is just good for the parties.

Athletics: Sports are a major part of USC, specifically football. There are gyms in a lot of student housing buildings and a main one for all students on campus that is pretty nice. I am not very involved in sports, but you can sense it all around you on this campus and there are many student athletes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience in school has been amazing so far. There are so many opportunities here and I have learned so much from my peers around me. The best part would be the friends I have made. These are people I consider to be my best friends and I know will always remain in my life beyond this university. Greek life is extremely prominent on this campus and I myself am apart of it. My experience is extremely unique to me because I am in a much smaller house and I feel as though I get the best of both worlds. I am apart of greek life and get to enjoy the many benefits of it, but we are also small enough that it does not become overwhelming and I believe we define out house while it does not define us.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Some sketchy areas when it comes to safety but overall campus police and a changing community are contributing towards a safer area.

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.
