History

  • The University of Southern California was formally founded in 1880, the result of a ten-year long dream of a group of citizens led by Judge Robert Maclay Widney.
  • When USC first opened its doors to 53 students and 10 teachers in 1880, the 'city' still lacked paved streets, electric lights, telephones and a reliable fire alarm system
  • Today, USC is home to more than 33,000 students and nearly 3,200 full-time faculties, and is located in the heart of one of the biggest cities in the world.
