Belong: Our Community

Reflecting the diversity of our backgrounds, more than 70 campus organizations and communities bring together students to explore politics, culture, spirituality and academic or professional interests. Popular clubs range from African Americans in Health, to the Cervantes Club of Arts and Letters, and the Association of Indian Students.

A Place to Be You

Our vibrant campus represents all 50 U.S. states and 135 countries and comprises one of the most ethnically diverse student populations in the country. Bold and curious, USC students are not content to simply sit back or play it safe. You will find student athletes participating in student film festivals, engineering students taking art classes and business students joining a rock band.

More than 60 percent of our undergraduates participate in community service and service learning programs.

USC maintains a long tradition of celebrating and supporting the visual and performing arts. Students will find numerous free film screenings, exhibitions and gallery showings, and hundreds of theatre performances — all without leaving campus.

The Visions and Voices arts and humanities series brings the world’s best writers, musicians, performers, thinkers and speakers to the community each year.

Although non-sectarian, USC is home to a vibrant multi-faith community of more than 80 student religious groups, representing most of the world’s major denominations, as well as comprising a strong Interfaith Council. Whatever your spiritual affiliation or interest, the Office of Religious Life at USC helps provide the means for you to observe your faith and learn about others.

The scholar-athlete tradition is strong at USC. More than 80 percent of our undergraduates participate in everything from football to foosball. If USC were a country, we would rank 14th in the world for the number of Olympic medals won. USC students have also achieved exceptional records in our 21 men’s and women’s NCAA Division I sports.
