Health & Safety:
The surrounding area is rather unsafe, but the actual campus I feel very comfortable at. They also make a large effort to aid in students making health conscious decisions.

There is a lot of diversity on campus. There are a ton of international students.

It is difficult to get into this school. Difficulties with applying include: getting in touch with anyone in financial aid or articulation! They work so slowly and seem to have no answers. The most important thing for admission is GPA. This is a very normal application process. You fill out a form online.

The computers on campus are new. The computer labs and printers are accessible. Network reliability can vary along with wireless access. You need your own computer no matter what.
College Junior 2013-07-09T05:07:53Z
Rent is expensive in Los Angeles no matter what, so USC can't really help that rent for housing is expensive. Regardless, it's expensive, and that's why I give housing an overall "C".

While our social lives are rarely infringed upon by USC's security officers, our academic lives here will be pretty much like high school, in the sense that whenever you talk out of turn while the professors are teaching, or if you were to violate academic integrity, there will be consequences. The most important thing; do not cheat, for if you do, and your teachers find out, you will either get an F in your work or an F in your class for the whole semester. Do it the second time, you will suspended from USC for the entire year.

The dorm I live in consist of friendly fellow Trojans that are nice and well-mannered. The social atmosphere is very pleasant, and even though there are students who reside in the same dorm I do that come from cities, states, or even countries far away, they know how to make you feel right at home in USC. Other than being a bit far from my classes, my dorm is quite all right.

Because most students will participate in the USC Cardinal meal plan, such as myself, we won't be given a chance to eat off-campus unless we were to have some money to spend for ourselves. We will only eat on campus.
However, from what I have heard, the food outside campus and the food in restaurants within relatively short distance of USC are really good.
College Freshman 2013-07-08T23:45:10Z
The labs and libraries within the campus are full of computers that, from what I've heard, is a bit crowded during crunch times. However, because there are many computers to accommodate the many students attending USC, it is a bit rare to find that all of the computers used. Plus, many students bring their laptops, so that definitely helps those who rely on USC's computers
College Freshman 2013-07-08T02:34:16Z
Student life at USC is amazing. I'm part of the Spirit of Troy and it is the most spirited group on campus. Even though we don't have a uniform, everyone is always seen wearing cardinal and gold.
College Freshman 2013-07-08T02:31:05Z
It is so scary off campus. I'm from a suburb so maybe it's not as bad to some people, but I run to the train at night to get home so I don't get kidnapped.
College Freshman 2013-07-08T02:29:42Z
I love USC, but I'm extremely afraid to ever leave campus. South Central is a rough neighborhood but I'm glad the security is so great on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-07-03T14:18:55Z
Greek life was under a lot of scrutiny this year which made for quite a few early shut down parties. But RAs were usually pretty chill about ignoring partying in the dorms. Campus security officers are a huge pain about where you can and can't ride your bike.
The dorms are pretty nice. New/North is where most of the freshmen live and it's kind of a dump with no A/C but the social atmosphere is great. Fluor Tower is the best place to live because it's a nice building and is still pretty social. It is farther from the center of campus though. Price is pretty average for a college dorm.
College Sophomore 2013-07-03T14:14:50Z
Parking on campus is super expensive and pretty strict but it's definitely convenient. Parking off campus is free but it's really hard to find a decently close spot.
College Sophomore 2013-07-03T14:13:39Z
Nothing better than SoCal weather! It's definitely hot during the first semester, but the beach is so close and it's really nice to be outside all the time.
College Sophomore 2013-07-03T14:12:48Z
USC isn't very fair with their scholarships. They either award them to the poorest of the poor who definitely deserve it. Or they give them to the rich kids who happened to get good grades. They leave out the whole middle class section of students.
College Senior 2013-07-02T18:33:06Z
The financial aid office is very helpful. I have not had any bad experiences with that department. They make everything easy.
College Senior 2013-07-02T18:31:42Z
Transportation is alright. The school does offer shuttles that takes you to the other campuses. However, the cost for parking is a bit pricey.
College Senior 2013-07-02T18:30:30Z
As a graduate student, there are various caucuses that cover the many diverse populations. From the various races, LGBT community, as well as the different religious clubs, this school takes into consideration all individuals attending.
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T01:59:11Z
Fine. It could be better, but its decent considering the number of students.
College Junior 2013-06-28T15:51:47Z
LosAngeles is a gigantic city with a lot to offer. There's more than enough to keep people interested - Venice Boardwalk, Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood, all the studios, Long Beach, there's numerous museums from the Getty to Ripley's. There is something for everybody and vast cultural communities that offer history, information, activities and awesome food. Even the cemeteries offer something - weekends at Forest Lawn Glendale actually have a carnival atmosphere. USC offers a fantastic educational experience, LA offers a fantastic living experience.
College Junior 2013-06-28T15:47:05Z
Housing close by is hard to come by and it's not exactly a safe neighborhood off the campus itself. What apartments there are seem to be reasonably priced and clean. Many students who live off campus prefer to commute from the beach communities. Commuting can be tough, though, traffic in LA is tough to maneuver and public transportation is hard to deal with.
College Sophomore 2013-06-28T15:37:21Z
Professors are actually quite hard to reach. At this school, expect large classrooms where you'll basically be taught by inexperienced TA's rather than professors.
College Sophomore 2013-06-28T15:36:36Z
The school and the officials understand what it's like to be a college student so very little punishment for drinking. They care more about getting you home safe than getting you in trouble.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
