USC is a big name school. However, USC needs to market itself OUTSIDE of southern california. Some of my friends on the east coast never heard of USC or better yet, think it's a state school! USC also needs to strengthen itself outside of the USA as well. Some of my professors were very helpful and wrote me letters of rec for professional school. The students on the other hand, at USC, tend to be very cold and cliquish. Students who knew each other from high school tend to hang out with one another. Same thing goes for greek life. If you're no a part of the greek system, don't expect them to even look at you. What others here say about this aspect of greek life is true...and unfortunately, is highly supported by the university's president (not the segregation...but greek life as a whole). Students may also be rude too. There were several students in my dorm who would always play their electric guitars, and when I asked them politely to turn down the music, they turned UP the music. Dormlife at USC is pure hell. The RA's don't know what the hell they're doing. I've filed several noise complaints with the RA's, and they do jack. On the lighter side, the new international parkside dorm is nice. I also like the new dining facility there. It's gorgeous. OTher than that, I can't wait to graduate next spring and get the hell out of LA.
