Beautiful campus. Daily visitor parking is $12 cash or credit. Parking can get full really quick though when school is in session and you end up having to park at the shrine parking across the street on Jefferson. Take note there are 2 shrine parkings...More

USC is like an island oasis in central Los Angeles. The grounds are immaculate and architecture diverse and most interesting. On a football game day it seems the entire grounds are comprised of one giant tailgate party. Drop by the main bookstore on Childs Way...More

Took a walking tour of the University. It is a beautiful campus, intimate setting compared to the factory across town, athletic heritage that is second to none, which is chronicled in Heritage Hall.

USC is awesome. The campus is very nice. Older buildings have beautiful architectural designs. The fountains are calming and the library is also worth checking out. The campus is easy to get to if traveling on the Metro Gold Line.
