By far the best university in California. While it may not be ranked as high as UCLA, it benefits from an incredibly advanced social network that propels its graduates into prestigious career paths immediately after college. It has an extremely diverse student body that invest themselves in a wide array of extra-curricular activities and athletics. Speaking of athletics, USC has one of the most impressive athletic programs and arguably the number one football team in the nation.
By looking at the numerous negative posts about USC, the insecurities of other rival schools (primarily UCLA) become blatantly obvious. It is clear that the students of USC feel they have nothing to prove, as they do not stoop to the same level by posting aggressive, immature attacks on their rival schools. Instead, they seek to highlight the positive aspects of their college experience. These rival schools should not get so down on themselves that the feel the need to use derogatory acronyms such as "University of Sucking Cock." They should be proud to be affiliated with such a prestigious neighbor. If they did, they could even learn a thing or two.

While the overwhelmingly Asian student body at UCLA spends the majority of their time with their noses in books, USC students are able to balance their schedule to practice other important life skills such as social interaction. The social scene at USC is unparalleled. The "Fraternity Row" on 28th street stretches all the way from Hoover to Figueroa and features the most powerful national chapters of fraternities and sororities. The fortitude of these national chapters allows greater funding, which allows these Greek letter social organizations greater possibilities for social and philanthropy events. The students in the Greek system perform the highest academically and are the most involved in campus activities, testament to the fact that the strong social atmosphere at USC allows the students to flourish.
Students from USC will all be leaders in whatever fields they choose to pursue, not only because they are academically qualified, but because they are socially competent and interested in a myriad of activities other than studying. They are actually interesting people. FIGHT ON TROJANS!
USC kids sure know how to party, but they always get their work done first.

The truth is that UCLA and USC are both good schools. There are good people and pricks at each school. The rivalry between the two breeds hatred in certain people on both sides. I'm a UCLA student, but I respect USC.

It's cool that we compete in everything, but it should be a friendly rivalry. This hatred is just not needed. The fact that LA can house two prestigious universities like UCLA and USC is amazing.
We're all smart people at UCLA and USC. Let's act like it.

The University of Southern California is a world-class leading research university located in downtown Los Angeles. It has the nation's best film school and its communication, engineering, and business school are all in the top 10.

Both USC and UCLA are very good schools, anyone who needs to trash talk the other to make theirs sound better is just foolish.
There are some challenging and some not so challenging professors at USC. But the same goes for UCLA. I've sat in on classes at both institutions.

University of Southern California.

The University where students are too busy becoming rich and successful to talk trash at
Dude, did you see how bad USC is getting slammed on

No man, I'm too busy running corporations, living the good life and gettin that paper

A really costly school in the pits of LA. Really prestigious if based entirely on the fact that it costs a lot of money. Also, lots of beautiful and rich women with boobjobs.

Academically, a small joke. Class difficulty seems to be on par with the Community College level. When I audited some classes there, it appears my lower division classes at UCSC (Notice the extra "C") were more difficult than the upper divison classes there.

Anyways, the beer at the football games is too expensive and the cheerleaders are butterfaces. Also, when people do that pumping Trojan "V for Victory" salute... from a distance... looks oddly like a field of people giving a fascist salute. Coincidence? Maybe, just maybe...
Dude, the whole stadium's doing a "Heil Hitler"!!

University of Sucking Cock
N, used to describe the habits of the "students" (both male and female) of downtown los angeles
USC "graduate":"I graduated from the University of Sucking Cock, now my degree is worthless and I have herpes in my mouth!"

1. University of Spoiled Children.
2. University of Second Choice.

Self explanatory unless you're from USC.
USC's reputation has improved over the years: it's gone from being the University of Spoiled Children to the University of Second Choice. That's pretty promising.

A famous private university in Southern California, whose academic and athletic reputation is overshadowed by a silly rivalry that they have with another excellent school, UCLA. Most students don't really care, but the playfulness of the rivalry is ruined by a minority of mean-spirited killjoys on either side.
USC idiot: Hey UCLA! We've risen 50 places in the US News and world report rankings! We'll probably beat your sorry asses this year!
UCLA idiot: Well, at least I don't go to a university that really stands for University of Spoiled Children. Hur hur GET IT?
