I visited the USC Law School for a conference and was amazed by the incredible new building. Although brand new, the law school manages to blend into the historical character of USC and the surrounding area.

Was here for a campus visit for daughters who are looking at colleges. The campus is beautiful, and though downtown, you don't feel like you're in the middle of a large city. Our tour guide gave an excellent tour.

We spent some time walking around the horseshoe of the campus, stopped at the visitor center, bookstore, and library. The campus is historic and worth the time to see.
