College Tour '10 -- University of Southern California

By Valerie Strauss

University of Southern California
From a student

I really liked that the school had a ton of school spirit.

And because it is a research-based university, I loved the school’s location in L.A., because of all the research opportunities there.

Also, the school has a great alumni association, so it’s really easy to get jobs/internships through their association.

I didn’t like how L.A. was mainly a driving city. It makes getting around the city a bit difficult, but USC is such a large school with a big campus that transportation wouldn’t be a huge problem.

I also didn’t really like how L.A. is so big. It’s difficult to tell one area from another. It was hard for me to understand if there were neighborhoods or "mini cities" inside of L.A. itself.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, e-mail me a brief report at You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
