Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Jan-03-2012 I am a current student here

    I enjoy being at USC because I am on track to getting my degree and achieving my career dreams. USC is giving me many of the tools I need and this is what I appreciate the most. Life on campus has not been a hindrance to me. In my opinion, housing is best in the Parkside area (if you like cleanness, quietness, privacy, and good study areas). I also love the camaraderie here. I have been able to meet students from all over the world! And it's exciting!

    The choice of classes, the people you will encounter here, and the overall environment is certainly one that's almost impossible to hate. USC holds a lot of prestige in California and nationally for that matter, and opens so many doors for people looking to find internships, study abroad, and follow what they love to do. The always-sunny, awesome weather doesn't hurt either.

    I love it here! There is a huge sense of being apart of a Trojan Family and you definitely feel it everyday. I can't tell you the countless times my friends and I have run into someone that is connected with USC and felt like I've known that person for years. Being a trojan means your a trojan for life.
