Campus Visit Notes for University of Southern California
When I toured USC, every person I met was nice. Now that I am a freshman at school there going into my second semester, I have found that not many people here really are that nice. I consider myself an outgoing person and I have had a really hard time making friends. I rushed the first week of school which sucked. It was really hard to be putting yourself out there the FIRST week of school only to have yourself heartbroken if you did not get into the house you wanted. However, I did make a few friends during the process. Still, I got off to a bad start with rush and not getting the house I wanted and then I was living at parkside. I moved to New North hoping to make more friends and that definitely did happen, but it is still hard finding nice people. Many of the girls are stuck up and do full hair and make up for 9 am classes. But, there are nice ones as well, they are just harder to find. USC is an interesting place with lots of opportunities, but I'm going to be second semester freshman and am still looking for my niche. My advice to any incoming freshman is to take a FRESHMAN SEMINAR! Mine was AMAZING and I LOVED my professor. We're friends now. Good luck to everyone!
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
The Radisson across the street from campus is the best but the Bonaventure downtown is great as well. We like to stay at the Langham in Pasadena because it's straight up the 110 and easy to get
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Go to LA Live. They have great restaurants and USC has a shuttle that goes there on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. If you're looking for closer to campus, The Lab in the Radisson is good.
