Some people are surprised by how diverse our campus is. There's every type of person here.

Shuttle Service – An on campus shuttle bus service provides free transportation to areas(stores, movies, homes, etc.) in the surrounding community. The services are responsive and available for early morning pick-up/returns to campus.

Drug Scene – In life people are faced with choices. I choose not to be involved and as a result would say that I have not experienced peer pressure.

School Environment – Campus life is great. Student organizations really encourage/promote school involvement. There are a lot of resources to ensure your success in school. Everyone has been helpful and dorm life is a great way to transition to a new school and make friends.

A Bit of a Hassle – Year-long lot permits are the cheapest option. Daily parking in a structure is $8/day. There are meters too. Parking enforcement from both the city and USC are prevalent and ticket/tow often. Sometimes citations are given for reasons that turn out to be completely invalid.

Usually sunny, often humid. Mild wind on occasion. Some rain (usually a downpour that passes in 2-3 days).

Live Close by, but Worlds Away – I live just one block from the Row so I hear the parties and such. I have heard stories of anti-GLBTQ issues from the frats. Sororities are just like the stereotypes. Many frat houses look run-down from the outside but the sorority houses are opulent.

I feel like I am a student who needs more help finding grants and scholarships that I am eligible for and that give me a chance of actually receiving money

Very Good – The school does supply trams to Union Station and to other parts of campus and parking centers

Parking at USC is something of a bad dream. Parking in on-campus structures is based on lottery, and while you will always have a spot if you have a parking pass, if you are a commuter student and only come to campus a couple of days a week, parking is terrible. The major parking structures are often filled by events at USC, meaning you have to come to campus early in case your normal structure is closed or full. Additionally, it is much more cost effective to pay the $8 daily parking fee than to pay over $400 for a permit. The $400 permit is also a major blow to a poor student's wallet.

Diverse Campus – USC has an unbelievably diverse campus and seemingly goes out of its way to keep this statistic true. We have a broad Asian and Hispanic population, but there are no ethnic or racial groups that are not well-represented on campus. In addition to this excellent representation, there are many different clubs and support groups on campus geared towards involving minority students on campus.

Philosophy, Politics, and Law – My major, Philosophy Politics and Law, is the only one of its kind in the country. It is a unique blend of philosophy and politics, and is intended to be segue into law school or a career in politics. The philosophy that the major focuses on is logic, ethics, and politics. The politics aspect focuses on constitutional and international politics. The workload is time consuming, but rewarding just the same. The major provides an interesting perspective which I have found to be directly applicable to the justice system which our country uses.

Worst Location Possible – Terrible location, people here don't really care about the students.

The greek row has a pretty big monopoly on social events but there are also house parties that are pretty fun. Campus cruiser goes at pretty much all hours so transportation is convenient.

Most dorms are pretty social, some have a bunch of nerds. First year cost is pretty average, second year can get expensive. The dorms are all pretty conveniently located

Los Angeles – Plenty of clubs, amusement parks, recreational activities, sports teams, malls. UCLA nearby, they suck. Smaller colleges come to USC to party.

The process was okay but there were not a lot of options.

Drug Usage – There are a fair amount of people who use illegal drugs. It is not visible but you can find it if you are searching for it. There is not a lot of peer pressure. Enforcement is okay in student housing.

The fitness center is better than average but not the best I've seen. It has several rooms with different equipment. The student center was revamped the year after I graduated and is now very nice. There are campus organizations and clubs for just about anything you could want to get involved with.

Football's Huge – Game days are huge during the fall. If you like sports USC has tons of sporting events to attend. Football is of course the biggest, even with the recent punishments its still huge.

Guys & Girls:
Very Varied – A lot of bro-tanks. There's a pretty big difference between those who are in Greek and those who aren't. Greeks are sometimes clique-ish. Guys are probably better looking than the girls (and I'm a dude saying that). Lots of cute Asian girls. USC has got good art and music schools too, which I think shows in the population. Very unique individuals everywhere.

Fast Food – As far as off campus goes, its pretty much fast food with the occasional nice asian place. The real good food is in Koreatown or nicer parts of LA

For What You Pay, I Do Expect More – After graduation, it's all about the networks you make.
