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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to USC was one of the best decisions of my life. When it comes to academics, the class size is small enough that it feels intimate and I don't feel afraid to participate. There are so many opportunities to join a variety of different clubs, from science to politics, to art, and more. The sports environment at USC is unlike no other, and game days are bigger and better than any I've been to at any other school. The people at USC are amazing because there are people of all different backgrounds even though we are a private university. I would recommend anyone come to USC if they have the opportunity to, or at least visit to get a taste of what our school has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USC has a "work hard, play hard" attitude where there are talented and motivated students who also pursue personal interests. Being in Los Angeles, there's always something to do or explore. It may take time to find your niche for some people, but there are lots of student orgs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I am an incoming freshman and have not experienced the school to its fullest, overall I feel like it is a good school, especially for my major, film and tv production. Even though the recent admissions scandal have slightly tarnished the university’s name, I will not judge the university until I have a chance to fully experience it myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus itself is beautiful, which is one of the most attractive reasons as a prospective student to apply. Once you have the opportunity to check out a college tour, the students guiding you show their genuine passion for the schools and are willing to answer questions in complete honesty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are a variety of opportunities on campus. Everyone I have met, professors and students included, are all trying to bolster one another to achieve their goals. On-campus organizations serve to help students develop both professionally and socially. Professors are very willing to be guiding mentors when students need assistance. Personally, I have experienced this first-handed when I approached my professor on what career path I wanted to pursue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its overall a good university. Sometimes they do misstep in cultural sensitivity for events they plan, but there is currently a student movement to increase diversity of the students that represents ALL of us. There are a variety of resources throughout campus that can be overwhelming. My only comment about these resources available is that they should create better linkages between awareness of resources and getting people to actually use them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USC is a great university because they have extraordinary programs and facilities that help enrich the education of their students. USC’s plaza allows their students to have an easier way of getting groceries as well as creating more on campus job opportunities for their students. Research fellowships, like SURF, help students learn about their desired field of study. The internship opportunities provided, via the co-ops programs or the St. Jude Medical Internship enable students to expand their academic and professional relationships. This program is exciting because of the hands on experience it offers in a hospital environment, as well as the medical networking opportunities. In addition, USC’s Major 2 Career program provide multiple platforms that highlight job opportunities within majors and connects students with recruiters. Another program that assist students is Opper2nity. Furthermore, the pre-med program, which is committed to providing student center services, give students the support and assistance needed to accomplish their goals. I also like how USC values one-on-one assistance and learning through community service. The assistance available through the variety of programs and faculty help students succeed within their undergraduate interests, as well as postgraduate life.
