McCarthy is great! New, clean facilities, room common spaces cleaned 2x per week.

Arguably one of the nicest dorms at USC. Has air conditioning, which isn't necessarily a given. Considerably spacious and even has cleaning services twice a week.

What can go wrong with the village? You have access to every story within 1 minute. The only downside is that if you want to meet other freshman, it may be a little harder than other freshman dorms like New North. Going to class takes a little longer too.

Great amenities. Great workspaces. Great people. Prime location. I was in a loft and even though the room is smaller than other setups, I felt like I had enough space.
