    San Francisco is a great city, and it isn't that far away. The campus is nice, although the dining center food could be better and more varied, but I guess you'll get bored of everything, eventually. There are plenty of other food options in Cesar Chavez Center and Stonestown Mall is a few steps away.

    Everyone is so nice! I haven't ran into a single person that I've just thought, Wow, what a jerk. I live in the Towers at Centenial Square, and although the floors tend not in interact with each other as much as in the Mary Ward or Mary Park halls, the rooms are spacious and dormlife members (RA's) offer many fun events many times a week for us to participate in. San Francisco is an AMAZING city, and there is always something to do for everyone whether they like to go to club events, explore nature, attend meetings, or just take a simple walk to the beach.
