If there are indeed aliens living on distant planets, it could end up being University of Southern California students who find them.

The school announced Wednesday an agreement with the SETI Institute to help look for extraterrestrial life.

SETI scientists will work with USC students and faculty.

USC and the non-profit alien-hunting institute will share technological resources and facilities.
