What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current graduate student in University of Southern California's M.E. School Counseling program. My program heads makes an effort to build community among students through Courageous Conversations, on-campus workshops and other activities. The University of Southern California sends out alerts when illegal activity takes place on or around campus. Alerts are sent via email and text: depending on what communication preference students choose. I have never felt unsafe when I visit campus. In addition to building community, the School Counseling Program hires professors who are current or past School Counselors. The professors share personal stories relating to School Counseling, encourage students to keep in touch after graduation and give direct feedback regarding the field of School Counseling. In regards to campus-housing, I am aware that University of Southern California has housing for students. Since I do not live near campus, I can't provide much insight regarding campus-housing. There is a place called University Village close to campus. There is a Target, Trader Joe's and a variety of eateries for all to enjoy. Some people may find the academics at University of Southern California difficult. Personally, there is a lot of writing and studying to do: especially as a graduate student. How ever, finding the time to write a paper or study and communicating with professors when an extension is necessary will lighten the work load. I have asked professors for deadlines and have not been denied an extension. Communication is key...please use it. Also, some professors are not strict with deadlines: if this is the case, I suggest taking advantage of the opportunity. Plan out when you will turn your work in, find ways to study or write between work and school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a really nice school that truly lives up to the high expectations of students who are new. There are a couple things I have to say I was disappointed in. The rec facilities are really poor, there's not even a rockwall for students. California is huge into climbing so this was a big surprise. Also, while everyone knows it's expensive, the dining hall food is gross and they are terribly small with very little options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USC is academically challenging and it is a privilege to attend. If you're looking for what a traditional college experience, USC it is. The professors are accessible and the activities held are amazing as well. Food and housing could be better as well as the drug control but other than that, it is amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall a great school with unbelievable education. I just wished I could actually afford it. As a student you have all you need at USC it's a different vibe from my previous college. I think what makes USC the best is the level of care professor have over there classrooms you can tell they what you to be great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USC is fine, for humanities, business and engineering, students mostly get a great return from the school. The school has many positives for those majors, although it’s not great for people interested in commercial arts. I’m in the fine arts department at Roski, but there is a push back in things such as illustration, comics, cartoons, and almost any interest in commercial entertainment. The animating department is part of a different school within the university but talking with some of the students there seems to be a lack of quality control when assessing the acceptance of people with decent draftsmanship skills. The networking in the Fine Art Department needs some work, alumni job perspectives are slim. A friend of mine is moonlighting as a hostess. There is not much of a push for teaching students professionalism. There also seems to be a funding issue, many of the classes need to equipment, from easels to electronics. The library sprung a few leaks earlier this year that damaged some desks. Also, there’s the scandal of when most of the MFA students left the school in 2016 for funding and structural issues within the school. Although in the last year or so there has been some re-structuralism within the school as it’s trying to fix its image. An illustration will be a course offered next semester and there is now an increased investment in 2-D and narrative arts. There’s hope for the school, in maybe a few years’ time it’ll become a much more positive investment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors that I have are all really caring and are passionate. I am only a freshman at this school, but I feel that I am already so immersed in the community and the school spirit. Everyone is very friendly since we hold the mentality that we are all a part of a big family: that Trojan Family. I love this school so much and am so proud to be a Trojan! Fight on!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Students are kind. However, tuition is to high. In addition, the school do not have need-based scholarships. There is merited-based scholarship, but this only cover 50% of the total tuition. It is not possible to study here for people who do not have money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USC is not perfect by any means, but what I truly love about it is that every student there seems passionate about something. Whether it's actually what they're studying or not, everyone has their thing that they get excited about and that they want you to be excited about. Classes are often surprisingly small, giving you one on one access to the professor after class. This is despite having the numbers to solidly be considered a "large" school. And while large in number, the compact layout of campus makes it feel so small in the best way. You always see someone you know on the way to class. The students are smart but not overly intimidating or competitive. Overall, USC has a place for everyone.
