They have some amazing programs at USC, and it is really well thought of as an institution, but the cost is through the roof (around $50,000 per year if you live there), and the school itself is in the ghetto. USC would do better to...More

We went to USC to attend the Graduation Ceremony held in May,2018. We liked the University, its building architecture, its culture and much more. It is one of the best Universities of the World.

I liked the calm nature of this university as a doctoral student and it's a pleasure to go back and visit from time to time. I'm always happy to see new and more state of the art buildings being constructed.

While the Campus of USC was certainly wonderful and has almost anything a student would want, the neighborhood adjoining it left a lot to be desired. I would recommend that USC start the long and hard process of developing the adjoining areas into up-scale residential...More

Wanna visit? Shell out $12 for parking. It's the first thing you do when you get there. Doesn't really leave a pleasant taste in the mouth and provokes the thought, "Apparently they don't care if you attend or not." In contrast, three other schools in...More
