On foot you can walk most of the student areas. Be sure to check out the Horsheshoe and some of the nearby academic buildings. Some old and architectural, others brand new and modern. Also get in your car and drive to the outdoor athletic complex.

This was our second trip to this campus. The roads are clearly marked. It's steeped in history, but it an extremely large campus.

I'm not a USC fan. We were up from Alabama on. Business and thought it would be nice to go see the stadium. It turned into a nice evening stroll. The area around the stadium is so beautiful and interesting. It's worth a look.
