Degree: Health and Wellness, General
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Southern California provides the full college experience. The professors were brilliant and the quality of education was optimal. I was challenged as a student and further grew as an individual with all that I learned and experienced while attending this university. As a student that graduated with a bachelors of science, I was always provided with the best quality equipment and facilities. The university's excellent alumni relations offered high probability of internships. This institution provides bountiful opportunities no matter what field you chose to pursue.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Networking is a critical part of attending USC. While it is academically challenging, the greatest benefit comes to those who know how to leverage the universities resources in their favor. Social life revolves around the Greek community, so be prepared to be outgoing and open to new experiences.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

USC is a wonderful place, especially for STEM majors. The diversity however, was not as great. I at times felt alienated, or discriminated against. I would say the entirety of the experience, benefitted me as a whole. My sister now attends USC and finds it to be very inclusive with all cultures and races. USC is a great place to build strong network and delve into one's major interests.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

Great college campus with awesome school spirit. There is a lot to get into as the campus is very forward thinking and vibrant. Additionally, being in the middle of Los Angeles has its obvious perks - celebrities, movies being shot on campus etc. I would like to see more diversity in the classrooms at this school. At times I was the only person of my ethnicity in attendance.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

USC is a second home in many regards. It is my mothers alma mater and it is where I followed to receive my Bachelors Degree. Studying communication at Annenberg was a priceless experience. Annenberg without a doubt is an obvious choice for graduate school. The education and innovation within the school is one of the biggest reasons for my desire to obtain my Masters Degree. Continuing my education at a graduate level is a way to further develop this extraordinary education.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

This school is very expensive, but its reputation pays for itself. The university's name is great on my resume. The professors were fantastic, and I did feel I received a strong education. I wish the career specialists were more helpful in providing guidance after graduation, though.

Degree: Communication, General
Graduation Year: 2016

Attend on campus or forget it. The online version of the program is a joke with the types of students they let it and the adjunct professors. The real professors teach the classroom on campus. The material is thrown at you to figure out, taking up 15-20 precious hours of your life each week just to be frustrated at how unprofessional it all is. Half of the students in groups attack one another or edge people out..the professional quality and personal characteristics of people that attend is a level below what you would see in an undergrad program. The online teachers are rude, always right, put you down, and then "tell on you" by cc'ing four other people. Honestly it's ironic that they teach professional communication when the communication to their customers..students..is terrible.

Degree: Gerontology
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended USC as an online Gerontology student. The coursework was extremely challenging and the professors were extremely knowledgeable. The amount of time spent on class and preparation was competitive with other institutions I researched. I am a very proud graduate of USC.
