The Trojan Family connection is the most unique aspect about the University of Southern California. There is not another school in the United States that has a stronger alumni database than USC does. This allows students to find careers and advance themselves in the world outside of an undergraduate education.

I feel that USC embodies a large research university quite well, but it also has a strong sense of partying and social life seems to revolve more than I would wish around alcohol and parties instead of academics or a focus on innovation and academic change. However, recently I've seen a group fo students here who really focus on technology and innovation that I've been able to work with well and has been very encouraging. Overall, faculty is interesting and helpful towards helping with material and classes, overall tend to be on your side.


USC has more diversity than any other school that I considered. It is not limited to one ethnic group or type of person. In my opinion, USC has the most well-rounded student body than any other school in the nation. I liked that USC excelled in academics, sports, and campus life.


USC has an incredible network of people, the Trojan family--students, family, faculty, and alumni--that bleeds cardinal and gold. There is really something special about the mere amount of school pride and connections that everyone has with one another; you're always proud to be a Trojan! The work ethic and passion that each individual here at USC has is amazing; I walk around campus every day thinking, "Wow, I am surrounded by the next big leaders of America, and I'm incredibly proud of each and every one!" It's truly something you can't get anywhere else.


The University of Southern California is unique because it offers the USC Medical Preceptorship Program, which is designed for pre-med students with an interest in learning more about the medical field. This program gives students the opportunity to get a sense of the medical field and observe physicians while doing their work in one of the Children Hospital departments. Being part of this program USC offers is something many pre-med students like myself, look forward to because we want to experience and observe all the different processes and decisions a doctor has to make throughout his/her workday.


Once a Trojan, always a Trojan.
