USC is involved in very high level research activity and thus has quickly risen up the ranking. It may interest you that although USC claims that their students hail from 112 countries, but it feels a lot like India once you’re there. It ranks #62 according to U.S. News' 'Best Global Universities Ranking' list.

Campus

Location

The University Park Campus of USC is in the West Adam’s district of South Los Angeles. The campus is within walking distance from LA Coliseum and Staple Centre, House of the LA Lakers.

Campus

The USC campus is spread over 235 acres with two main libraries having more than a million volumes of all the possible topics in the world. ‘Traditions in the Lot’ is an on-campus Bar while Trojan Grounds and Ground Zero are the popular Cafeterias within the campus.

Residing Options

Though Cardinal Gardens, Fluor Tower and Pardee Tower are the popular dorms On Campus, majority of the students prefer staying Off Campus. 30th Street Villas, The Bungalows, Conquest Housing and the Medici (5 kms from the campus, pretty expensive but extremely safe and excellent facilities) are the Off Campus residing options for the USCites where the charges range from 900$-1200$ a month.

Faculty

The faculty at Viterbi School of Engineering (USC’s engineering college) is renowned for being extremely knowledgeable, and even more approachable. Students are terribly impressed by the way professors maintain an admirable balance between teaching (and helping) students, and carrying out their own research work.

Jobs and placements

While getting a good, well-paying job should never be a problem – USC organizes excellent job fairs couple of times a year, where most students get picked up at fantastic salaries – you need to work pretty hard to ensure that you get a job that you really like doing, since the competition is pretty intense.
