We wanted to check out the film school here. They have visitor pay parking where you have to pay in advance. Beautiful, clean campus. The film buildings reminded us of the Twilight Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios in Disney - very 1920's-ish but brand...More

The USC campus is quite beautiful, with a mix of modern and older buildings. Walked around in the early evening and enjoyed the trees, building and athmosphere.

Great school! I really enjoyed staying at USC for graduate school. It's beautiful here. The only thing is that it's close to downtown LA. Kind of dangerous but you will also have night life as a benefit. Korean Town is a good place to go...More
