3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It's easy to guide your friends and family to visit campus, as long as you have your ID card ready to swipe into buildings. Getting into the dorm rooms requires visitors to have IDs, or even if they are children and don't have IDs, they have to sign in. I like this as it makes campus feel safer and I wouldn't want just anyone coming into the dorms and passing by (or even coming in) to my room. The rest of campus isn't very strict though. You're free to do whatever, and there are security cameras around.

Campus Housing: There is considerable variation in campus housing in terms of quality. Some dorm rooms are a bit older but not falling apart and others are newer and more luxurious and modern. I've been to rooms in every dorm except Fulton House and Gillson so I have a good idea of how to compare them. In terms of price, though, they're all costly, especially when the meal plan is required for most of the dorms.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: So many options. Lots of variety. Never gets old.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I havent yet live on campus. But it is sure nice to have that opportunity. If its affordable at a college students affordability.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They were great and encouraging to help me do my best and hopefully get a job within my field. Unfortunately, it is hard for me to land a great job with an Associates Degree at hand. So am planning to go to back to school to get my Bachelors Degree in Health, primarily at University of San Francisco.

The city of San Francisco serves as an incredible backdrop for the University, which is every bit as fascinating and unique in its own right. USF is an older school with a rich history that dates back to 1855. Though buildings have been renovated to fit the times and more modern demands of students, the University itself strives to maintain a time-honored system of social justice with a strong emphasis on moral, fair education for every student. The five schools at USF offer more than 100 degree programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels, yet maintain an average class size of just 28 students and a student-to-faculty ratio of 15 to 1, so students and faculty get better acquainted than at larger schools. And much like the city itself, USF is incredibly diverse and tolerant. People from all over the world flock to USF, so in coming here, you’re certain to meet students of all ethnicities, religions, and cultures.

USF gives its students the chance to enjoy the intimacy of a small college experience and the big, bright adventures present in a major city. When the campus feels too small or schoolwork becomes too demanding, San Francisco provides an amazing escape. The included MUNI pass makes buses accessible to all students, and as a result, students can take full advantage of the different restaurants, museums, beaches, parks, and nightlife available here in the city. In balancing college life, academics, and the city itself, most students find USF to be a fantastic school set in one of the country’s greatest cities.
