Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

College Life Rating

USC has any club you can think of, and there are countless opportunities to get involved. Safety on campus is great, while during the summer months can seem a little sketchy (even though there are tons of DPS officers around). Safety immediately outside campus is also fine during the day, but you definitely have to be street-smart to avoid dangerous situations. I would not recommend living near campus--either on campus or further away.

College Life Rating

So far there seem to be options for all tastes in this school, with a vast population of students and academic programs the school life seems pretty vibrant with everyone coming together by one the best football teams in the country.
