The process of getting into my major was very easy. You just had to meet with an advisor in order to get signed up for the major. You must be proactive with your advisor though if you really want to make sure you are getting the best out of the program. You must openly ask questions about paths towards graduate school or internships that could help you.

There are a lot of food options near USC, however the ones that generally stay open late are only fast food options. Also, cafes and restaurants nearby generally are a bit pricy. This is expected for LA though. Lately a lot of food options have been opening. For example, my current favorite is Pizza Studio and Built right by USC. Pizza studio has pretty good prices, but Built seems a little pricy for a burger in my opinion. Both are great places though!

I am very happy as a Kinesiology major. However, I am not looking into going into medical school. I am interested in going to a post physical therapy program. My major generally has the same classes intended for pre-med students as well though. This makes things a little difficult because general classes like chemistry and biology are generally crowded and professors are trying to weed out those who should not be going into med school. If i could do it all over again I would take the classes off track so my GPA would not have suffered so much.

I have not had the opportunity to start an internship with the University of Southern California yet, however I plan on applying to internships on the Health Science Campus for USC in order to become familiar with the physical therapy department. I am afraid of not having enough time for an internship, but I believe it is something important and worth committing to. I am currently a student worker for the University of Southern California in the customer support center for their Information Technology Services department. My responsibilities include answering the phone and helping students connect to the network, reset their password, or connect to our VPN services.

Health & Safety:
There have been occasional safety difficulties, but SC has a ton of policies in place to prevent future problems and make sure all students have the resources they need to feel protected. I rarely if ever feel unsafe on or near campus.

People talk a lot about USC being in "the ghetto", but I actually really love the community. We're in driving distance of beaches, mountains, and deserts, as well as a huge cultural center and great nightlife. There are also a ton of opportunities for community service and engaging with other universities, and all the job prospects that come with being in a large city.

Financial aid will work with you, but you need to put in effort as well. The A is for the relatively large number of merit-based scholarships available, more than more colleges, which is great for middle class students.

Bussing system on the edge of campus that will take you around LA for a few bucks and even Santa Monica for $1.25.

The easiest process ever. Literally walk up to the office with documents, fax, or email them and they are guaranteed to be read by an officer within a day or two. The office has a waiting room with a flat screen, computers, and leather couches. Couldn't have been easier. They even filled out my application for me.

Los Angeles has great food on every corner and a classy restaurant is never more than a mile away. Less classy and equally delicious food is never more than a quarter mile away.

Good food, i recommend new north for parties and parkside for isolated suites.
College Sophomore 2013-08-31T00:29:53Z
Great spot and even better security but the cost seems outrageous to me.

I don't live on campus but I could talked about the university in general. Atmosphere is great at USC! Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The campus is beautiful. I love there staying and studying for my classes. They have over 100 practice room for musicians which are open 24/7.

The administration is very involved in Student Life.

If you're Greek there is tons to do on the Row during the week and on weekends people hit up the Hollywood nightlife scene. Also, there is a bar ON CAMPUS.
College Freshman 2013-08-30T00:01:38Z
There are people from all over the country and the world.

Just a lot of drinking and occasional smoking. Nothing too hard core

On and around campus transportation is excellent. There are trams and shuttles that go around campus and to various parking lots all day and into the evening. There is also a free campus taxi service for after hours.
Off campus, it's LA; it's horrible. You need a car and you need to know how to handle major traffic. Parking is expensive or inconvenient --take your pick. The buses and subway are not connected well, are dirty and dangerous. And you can't walk anywhere.

It's expensive and mostly run down houses or really overpriced apartments. Share housing with friends or just stay in the dorms.

It's LA. Everybody is concerned with looks and style. Some VERY pretty people. ;)

I went to a small school in my hometown for my first two years and I highly recommend it. It allowed me to transfer in as a junior with most of my general requirements done and saved a lot in tuition. Also it's a great way to rehabilitate a less-than-stellar high school record. Financial aid is great here but you will probably accumulate some debt. The school is expensive

I was a Cinema Production Major. It was very exciting and in many ways a rewarding experience but I feel like there were too many negatives to give it a better grade. oThe program is SUPER demanding. There is a lot of favoritism and pettiness from the faculty. The grades are almost arbitrary and the school doesn't help with job placement afterward at ALL. In fact they make you pay for career counseling. There were never enough resources to go around in terms of equipment and space and the grad students got first priority over undergrads on everything. So they have a green screen sound stage that they'll brag all day about but if you're an undergrad, you'll probably never see it. If you do go, do as many internships as you can and try to line up a job before you graduate. Don't worry too much about school competition, it doesn't really matter. And know that you will probably end up working as a producer, an agent or not in the film industry.

Los Angeles is huge and has great weather. There is a LOT to do. The only reason I gave a B is because most activities require driving and there isn't much in walking distance from campus. Also, campus crime gets a lot of attention but, frankly, it happens to people that don't have street smarts. Don't leave your doors unlocked or your valuables out when you're not their to watch them. Don't walk alone at night; have a buddy or call the free campus taxi. Don't get drunk beyond reason around people you just met. If you do those simple few things, you'll be fine. There are some fun campus activities. The university has a great movie theater, swimming pool drive-in movies when it's hot out, free comedy shows and some concerts. Athletics are huge as is tailgating. It's not my thing but a lot of people are into it at SC and really enjoy it. The city at large has everything: sports, shopping, concerts, the beach, hiking, museums, nightlife, amazing food of every kind, hiking, surfing and skiing within a days drive.
