Prior to matriculating at USC as a freshmen in fall of 2002, I was thinking that USC was a college that really kicked a$$. Unfortunately, as time went by, I have to agree with a lot of the negative comments other students have posted here. USC may be a top 50 college, according to US News, but really should be in the second tier category,…and I'm not kidding. I think I would have had a better experience at a Cal-State or a small private institute (i.e. Univ of Redlands) where the students are not snobby, close-minded and are friendly. When I visited a Cal-State campus, as well as Pomona college to see my friend, I was surprised as to how friendly the students were. At USC, students (not all ..but a good handfull of them) are close-minded, and the student body seems to be segregated by the frat scenes. It's not only the frat scenes that segregate the student body…not to play the race-card…but also your ethnicity that's a label as to whether you're accepted in the Trojan "elite club" or not.

USC's life is based on football, sports, and other shallow things. Academics seem to be placed on the back-burner. I will do one thing for sure…never to send my kids to USC in the future.
