What are 3 words that best describe USC?

I'm working on my USC application, and just for some inspiration, what 3 words would you guys use to describe the school and its culture? Any input would be super helpful in giving me an idea of what makes USC unique!

Sure, I'd be happy to provide some input! Based on what I know about USC and the general impressions students and alumni have shared, I would describe the school and its culture with the following three words:

1. Ambitious: USC students are known for being driven and motivated to succeed academically, professionally, and personally. They exhibit a strong work ethic and constantly strive for excellence.

2. Collaborative: Despite the ambitious nature of its students, USC fosters a supportive and cooperative environment. Students are encouraged to work together, share ideas, and help each other succeed.

3. Spirited: USC has a strong sense of school spirit and pride. Students and alumni are passionate about their university, regularly participate in school events (such as sports games and other campus activities), and maintain connections with the school long after they've graduated.

These three words capture some key aspects of the USC experience, but keep in mind that each individual's experience may vary. Best of luck on your application!
