I absolutely love my school. It is a small campus that is located in the heart of San Francisco. The campus is on a 3 block radius and is so beautiful. It is like a little community in a huge city. This school has division one sports team and lots and lots of clubs and a few sororities and fraternities. The class sizes are really small which is good because all my teachers knew both my first and last name. I loved all my teachers and I am excited to go back next year. My suggestions are to get involved...

    USF has a beautiful and intimate campus that is small enough to get to class fairly quickly and is notable for the gorgeous architecture of St. Ignatius Church and Lone Mountain. The culture overall is rather reserved and closed off since many of the students are commuters and there is little school spirit. Academically, USF takes good care of its students, ensuring each student gets the classes he/ she needs and fostering its programs in nursing, kinesiology, business and marketing, and numerous others very well.

    The University of San Francisco is a great place to learn and explore San Francisco at the same time. This University is extremely costly to attend so look at your financial aid first. Also, the dorms are not the best but you only have to spend the first year there.

    Everyone is welcoming and makes you feel like you really belong here. The campus and it's people are here to make sure you get an amazing education and learn valuable life skills. Not to mention it's in central San Francisco so I really feel like I am going to the University of the Best City ever!

    I actually applied to the University of San Francisco last minute. It was a choice that always lingered in my brain, but I never thought I would go that far from home. Without touring the school or talking to anyone from the school, I chose this school and I think it is the best decision I could have made.

    When it comes to diversity, I would say USF is one of the most diverse campuses in both student body and teachers. There is so much support from the staff and everything is so personal and targeted to benefit students. Not only is USF a great community for learning and opportunities, the location is self is absolutely spectacular and there is never a dull moment.

    Well-rounded education with a focus on obtaining a degree to change the world. A very open and accepting community that creates awareness of all beliefs and cultures. The academics are about depth of knowledge and ability to use what you have learned to help others in society and yourself.

    I'm glad I chose this school because I never visited the campus but I just had a feeling that I would enjoy it. I was right. Now I'm doing really well, met a lot of people, and I can't complain about much, except that maybe tuition should be less but then again we are a private university in an expensive city...

    University of San Francisco is very honorable of their tagline, Change the World from Here, where Here represents San Francisco and the students' minds and hearts. Life in this university is not only restricted in its campus but also extends outwards into the city that holds the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge. Students from around the globe attend the University of San Francisco, so newfound culture is endless!
