University of Southern California
How many USC students does it take to change a light bulb?
None – they don’t bother, it’ll just get broken again at the next party.
What Uni in the USA says...
The University of Southern California is where you go if you want to live like in the movies. Life here is a realisation of all the classic stereotypes of Los Angeles college life – the rich white kids, the parties, the fraternities, the drugs, the lack of work, the sun, the beaches and the beautiful girls. The most centrally located of all the LA universities, USC enjoys a strong reputation, a huge and well-endowed campus, and one of the most dazzling (or terrifying, depending which way you see it) party scenes in America. If you want to learn something at college, it is certainly possible here, but it’s not the main reason the kids apply here in droves.
