Tolerance is high on campus. The Gay Lesbian Bi Transgender Assembly is highly influential to school administration. Although most fraternities and sororities are opposed to initiating openly gay students, certain houses say they have gay members and are fully supportive of them, which would never have happened 10 years ago. Gay students who are harassed by roommates and neighbors have a strong support system at the GLBTA.
There is a mix between traditional SoCal conservatives and a growing breed of young liberals.
Coined by timeless rival UCLA as the "University of Spoiled Children," the student body at USC comes across as affluent to outsiders. This is not entirely true. Although a huge number of students are wealthy, there is an even greater number of students on financial aid. It is a credit to the University that students are willing to do whatever it takes to study at USC and get involved on campus.
Most Common Religions
Christianity and Judaism are the most common religions at USC, but the presence of other religions is definitely felt. There are student organizations for all kinds of religions, as well as Alpha Gamma Omega, the Christian fraternity.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are more than 300 student organizations on campus, many of which are in the interest of minorities. There is also a Jewish fraternity, Asian fraternity, and an African American fraternity.
