Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

How quickly can four years go by? Come to USD, and you’ll soon find out. As students prepare to graduate, they tend to dread leaving the idyllic world of USD for the “real world” of interviews, jobs and bills, and total responsibility. As freshmen, students come in and can have difficulties balancing schoolwork with the fun aspects of the city. They complain about the strictness or the spotty network connection or the walk across campus that takes forever when you’re running late. They dread the gossip that can dominate campus, especially on Monday mornings after a party on Saturday, when they might be still crying over the boy or girl who dumped them. But as seniors and alumni, they’re filled with nostalgia for the caring, supportive atmosphere of USD. They long for the meals they used to skip from the Student Life Pavilion. They wonder where life took the president of Club X or Team Y. They miss the professors who pushed, helped, and watched them succeed.

The majority of students who graduates from USD can’t imagine having gone anywhere else. USD strives to shape balanced, well-rounded individuals. The University partners with the city of San Diego to do just that. Students learn more than meiosis, business strategies, or how to analyze poetry; they learn the professional and social skills necessary to find a job after graduation, leaving with networking abilities, professional acquaintances, and lifelong friends. But more than anything, they graduate with fond memories of their college experience that will last a lifetime.
