2 College Freshman

Majors: My program has no attention to it. They say it is good but in reality it sucks. There are some professors that are amazing however.

1 College Freshman

Academics: They say "Academic Standards Steeper than this hill" However the academics suck. The classes are too easy and I do not feel challenged.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It could be better but it isn't the worst. Greek life is only existent if you know someone that is in it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They are strict on some things and other things they don't care about.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's San Francisco, there is literally every kind of food options available off campus.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: The school once had a good basketball team but now the athletics sucks. The basketball team is infamous on campus for sleeping with every girl that will let them and the basketball coach scouts girls out for the boys team to hook them up which is completely inappropriate. However everyone overlooks it because they're the only thing that is somewhat good about the school. USF fails to address this issue and leaves the students feeling like all they care about is their money.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It is never too hot and always cold year round. The weather is amazing, it is san francisco.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The school gives out muni passes to all undergrads.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The school makes every student take a course called think about it but it really does not do much.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: The school says it's diverse but all there is is an abundance of Chinese students with rich parents.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is the worst. There is never any toilet paper in the stalls, the restrooms are not kept clean daily, there is no soap, and the staff is very rude for the price you pay.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Academics fairly good but not overly fantastic

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics does not have a huge following

4 College Freshman

Weather: Weather is mostly sunny and actually in a drought this year. Day by day is fairly consistent but during the day the weather can vary greatly

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Some people know how to keep themselves together while many do not

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diverse ethnically but the majority of the students are financially well off

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Located in the city between the beach and downtown. City is small and all parts are accessible and vibrant

4 College Freshman

Transportation: School provides public bus passes to all students and taxis are very accessible all throughout the city

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many different choices for off-campus dining but can be a bit pricey over time

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's strict but could be stricter

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: A bit strict but an experienced I liked nonetheless

2 College Freshman

Weather: Other than the occasional sunny days where everyone can be found either at the park or beach basking in what few bright days we have, the weather is awful. It is always foggy and cold.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It can get dangerous in the city or at least sketchy, and things can be a bit pricy but apart from that it is great to live in a city that has so much to offer.

Campus Housing: The only great thing about living on campus is the proximity to your classes and it's role in keeping everyone together and creating a great social atmosphere. Apart from that living on campus sucks.

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.
