California’s oldest and most famous private university is recognized globally for its excellence. In fact, like Hollywood and other famous Southern California originals, USC often acts as a global ambassador for American higher education. This distinctly American institution has more Olympic medal winners than any other college (indeed outpacing all but 12 countries in medal count and preserving its edge in London, with 24 medals to University of Florida’s 21) and has one of the most successful sports programs in collegiate history.
