University of Southern California Graduate Reviews

36 reviews
My enrollment advisor, Mr. Petronus Williams was invaluable in the process of touting all of the benefits of choosing the University of California as my destination of choice for my Masters degree. We discussed the high academic caliber of professors along with the school's stellar reputation. Of most importance was our discussion of my eventual standing in the world of Gerontology after graduation which clinched the deal for me. The fact that the classes were online did not discourage me because more work is required in online courses. I'm not afraid of hard work and my 3.68 GPA is proof of that. I am looking forward to the start of class and more learning ALL I can in the field of Gerontology. Onward and upward at USC thanks to Mr. Williams. I salute you!

The University of Southern California has such outstanding faculty. I am so grateful that I get to learn from their expertise is. It is, I believe, beyond measure. I love how diverse it is. So many students come from all over the world and being in such a community is enriching.
The campus is the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is very well taken care of and buildings are constantly being renovated. It really feels like home.
Safety measures made by the school are excellent.
There are so many different clubs, gyms, and sports teams for those who are interested in physical exercise.
Generally I feel that no matter what one's interests are, at USC you will definitely find community with similar interests and friends with diverse backgrounds.
As of one semester, entering my second as a graduate student, I can say that my experience with USC has been great! Their student services support is very helpful and easily accessible. They are very proactive in making sure that all required documentation is submitted in a timely manner. They also periodically check on you during the course of the semester.
