AMAZING; Academics are rigorous, but with all the support available that you need to be successful. Social life is upbeat and eventful with tons of diverse people with whom to interact. Also, Los Angeles is a vibrant city with numerous opportunities in a variety of fields.
Second year from San Diego, CA
USC is a great school that I feel encourages each person to progress and achieve success. There are so many opportunities in and around campus to to experience Los Angeles and Southern California. When you're on campus, it feels like being part of a big family, that screams FIGHT ON at you every once in a while.
