We know this is a tough time for admitted students as they weigh their plethora of college options. So, Why USC?

USC vs. UC Berkeley?  USC vs. UIUC?  USC vs. Stanford?  USC vs. UCLA?  USC vs. MIT? USC vs. Cornell?  USC vs. Carnegie Mellon? USC vs. CalTech?

The list of schools you all have been admitted to is, quite literally, a “who’s-who” of top engineering programs.  The simple fact of the matter is that you can’t make a wrong choice.  These are all great schools…. great engineering programs…. great possibilities for success!

We could tell you over and over again, and we probably will at some of our Admitted Student Programs On Campus and Off Campus, why USC is a great institution to conduct your undergraduate studies at. But why take it from us? Listen to some of our students and faculty members below.
