See below for commons questions around University of Southern California virtual tours.

How effective are University of Southern California virtual tours?

It depends how you use them. University of Southern California is a hustling, bustling campus and community. The beauty of University of Southern California virtual tours on CampusReel is that authentic video tours, made by real students, can be spectacular at capturing the University of Southern California vibe. We also go well beyond the confines of the University of Southern California campus by taking you around Los Angeles. In traditional virtual tours, you will mostly see still, unengaging images and will not see the surrounding area at all – which is why CampusReel virtual tours are so important.

Can a University of Southern California virtual tour replace a traditional in-person visit?

If you cannot visit University of Southern California in person, then we can honestly say that we believe a CampusReel virtual tour of University of Southern California is absolutely the most effective and holistic way to understand the University of Southern California people, campus and community. However, if you do plan on visiting University of Southern California and other colleges in person, we strongly recommend that you at least prescreen your college options on CampusReel before spending the time and money to visit. Most prospective families find that as soon as the step on campus, they instantly know whether or not they like the school – but they’ve already spent all that time and money getting there! Our goal is to eliminate all the time and money visiting University of Southern California in person until you can make a strong educated guess that it’s worth the investment.

For your convenience, below is a list of University of Southern California places you can virtually tour on CampusReel.

Rest assured we are working on adding more CampusReel guides to the University of Southern California virtual tour.

What are the benefits of a University of Southern California virtual tour?

This can save families a lot of time and money compared to visiting University of Southern California in person. Another often overlooked benefit of a CampusReel virtual tour is that it goes far beyond a traditional in person tour University of Southern California. Campus visits are limited both in time and scope – how are you expected to truly understand a college in a 1 hour tour? That’s why we stress the added benefit of CampusReel virtual tours – experience University of Southern California and Los Angeles during different seasons, days of the week, and even hours of the day. What’s game day like? What is finals week life? Again, traditional virtual touring platforms don’t include this benefit.

Right across from the Galen Center (home to USC basketball and volleyball) and behind the beach volleyball team's court lies South Residential college. South is home to many first-year students whether they are freshman or transfer students. It is made up of three connected buildings (Marks Tower, Marks Hall, and Pardee Tower), as well as the building in the backyard, Trojan Hall. While new students have it rough at South Residential, New North Residential, and many of the older residential colleges without air conditioning, the bond RAs establish between floormates and buildings is really cool. Sometimes they schedule inside activities like crafting or pizza movie nights. Other times, they plan trips. We could grab Ramen, head to the movie theatre, or even explore some of L.A.'s nicest cafes and art galleries. These events are always free to us, even the subway transportation. Another cool thing about first year housing is that in some residential colleges, professors live downstairs with their families. That's right, kids are growing up knowing USC as their home and us students as their role models. Having Faculty in Residence reminds students that there is life outside of these gates. It can be so easy to get sucked into living as though we're only surrounded by people our age. Furthermore, this emphasizes that professors have lives of their own, and they are always accessible to us. The university really wants students to get to know faculty, so hikes, dinners, and all kinds of activities that integrate the two groups are commonplace at 'SC.
