Attending the University of Southern California was a great college experience for me. I was able to grow and mature by working my way through college as a Resident Adviser. I also enjoyed the opportunity to work as a Teaching Assistant (TA) for a Professor in my field of study who inspired me as a Computer Science student.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

I am a current graduate student in the University of Southern California's computer science program and so far I am very happy with the program. I am a DEN (Distance Education Network) student and so I attend all of my classes online and since I live in the Los Angeles area I take all of the exams on campus. My experience with this so far has gone very well as I have been able to work full time and attend my graduate courses online. I have also been able to make use of the many resources available to me as a USC student such as the many libraries that are available. Both Leavey Lbrary and Norris Medical Library have been great resources for me to be able to study and get work done. So far the quality of instruction has been excellent as the professors and TAs have been extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The courses I have taken so far have been challenging but not so much so that they are impossible to pass. Every time that I am on campus I notice a great diversity in students and I have never felt unsafe on campus.
