This school is a mixed bag for me. On one hand there are some great teachers, fun sports events and a great reputation. On the other hand, some of the math and Computer Science teachers don't speak the best English, and often teach straight out of the book.

Despite all the comments from my friends about

going to school in the ghetto,
the environment isn't that bad, but you'll be very bored without a car.

While some students seem friendly, it seems like there is a majority of fraternity/sorority people (I'd say at least 50%) who seem downright arrogant or snooty if you aren't "one of them." (I'm not being biased, I must admit I've met a few nice Greek people.) I did come to college to meet new people, and if I end up transferring, this would probably be the reason.

I'd probably have an easier time getting a job with a USC degree, but remember, prestiege doesn't matter if you aren't happy where you are…
