Los Angeles was just a Wild West frontier town when USC opened in 1880. Today, there are some 35,000 "Trojans" in the heart of the city, taught by a full-time faculty of around 3,200 scholars. It offers the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, based at University Park, a graduate school and 17 professional schools based in and around LA.
