I know that because we just got back from a tour of the campus. (I still find it hard to believe that Matt is old enough to start thinking about college!)
The university was established in 1880 and today hosts 35,000 students.Even though the campus is in the heart of Los Angeles, it is beautiful!
We of course had to tour the theatre technology department, since that will probably be Matt's major....
Here are a few facts for you:
Freshman Class, Fall 2009
Average GPA: 4.05
Tuition: $40,000 yr.
I have to show you something else that was going on during our visit:
Any guesses as to what's going on?
Well, lemme tell ya.
That silver wrapped statue is "Tommy Trojan" the school's mascot. This week he is wrapped up and is being guarded night and day by the Trojan Knights. (This week is the BIG cross-town rivalry football game and they are trying to prevent a sneak attack by the enemy!)
They have a bell to ring if they need assistance. And they have a webcam helping to keep watch over the statue and campus. Click HERE if you are interested.
