  • We spent family time here with our daughter who attends USC and always love our time on campus. Beautiful and inspiring as always. 
  • We made the mistake of heading into the area when the Rams had a home game. Must pay attention to the NFL schedule. Although you don't get to see much of USC, you do get to enjoy the tailgaters and fa...  read more »
  • Extremely poor wi-fi connectivity on/near campus. (Mind the word extremely!) Signal gets lost every other minute. I have sent emails regarding this to them, still nothing done. I wonder when they will do something about it. Students need internet connectivity now USC!
  • USC is one of the top colleges in the nation with an acceptance rate of mere 16.5% and average unweighted GPA as high as 3.8+. However, from this rating section, I have seen many unreasonable hatred towards USC based on the impression from the 50s. After carefully reading these comments I was like "wth"? People really tend to stick their head around stereotypical thoughts. They never state facts and numbers such as annual global academic contribution, number of academic SCI articles contributed, and number of professors being awarded nation prize. Vague contents such as atmosphere, attitude and wealth are the only three words that could summarize their comments. Well, of course some UCLA people would like to come here and make up stories to make USC look worse. For instance, quote "I withdrew after attending the orientation", which is very unlikely based on both the general academic schedule and withdrawal policies; Of course, if you are turning USC down for community college, you are not wise enough to attend USC anyways. So, I strongly suggest whoever is posting hatred comments to make up better stories and do more research. Another thing I wanna address is the rich kids and party description. I wonder if LA citizens are living in a fantasy in which elite private schools in the whole nation open their doors for the poor and whoever is nerdy enough to not party. I don't see many poor or nerdy students in Ivies or any of the other alleged more prestigious schools like Stanford, Northwestern and etc. All of them consist of rich kids who party crazily and pay tuition as expensive, if not more, as USC's. Dartmouth even had massive alcohol intoxication cases every holiday. I don't see how these schools are being berated. People hold disparate attitude when it comes to comparing USC and their so-called more prestigious schools which have similar tuition, similar party tradition, and the same amount of rich kids. Whatever these people despite USC for are the things that they praise for other colleges. Such stereotypical thinking proves these people's possession of prejudice and lack of education. Nobody cares about the haters. Haters gonna hate even when they don't have proper cause to hate. They say about wealth and party; well, unfortunately, Harvard and Yale students do the same and probably more frequently. But you never belittle Harvard and Yale students because you don't possess the bias against them. I don't see how people berate Obama as a worthless man simply because he partied a lot during his Harvard and Columbia years. But when it comes to rating USC, every downside you have ignored comes back alive? Isn't it pathetic for all of you haters? After all, USC has transformed. It is now one of the most influential and prestigious schools in California and the nation. It has global influence on academic contribution. Enormous number of scientific articles are under the name of USC. I am impressed by what USC has done. It is one of the best schools you should attend because of the spirit of challenging and changing.
  • Very nicely groomed school with historic buildings and monuments. The school is locked down at night so it might be hard to find your way out.
  • I went to USC Sol Price for my MPA. I do love the campus and everything about USC. The value of the education is awesome and USC definitely has some hardcore professors although a few of them play their favoritism among the students. The only thing I never like about being in SoCal is the hot weather but other than that everything is fine!
  • Don't waste your money, people here are rude selfish and snobby but of course that's how all wealthy people that had everything handed to them are. They are destroying the LA community and making everything around it very expensive. Get out while you can!
