4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: People are very diverse and open minded and easy going.

5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Being in San Francisco all the students were extremely diverse. I had friends that came from every background! Whether they were gay, straight, funny, creative, smart; there was every type of person on campus. Every student was also extremely accepting of one another and I never felt out of place, or felt socially competitive with any other students.

Guys & Girls: A lot of people are social and will take the time to get to know each other. Then theres some people who will stay in their cliques.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of good looking guys on campus; they're not hard to find. There are a wide variety of people on campus from athletes to artists, so everyone can find their type. As far as I know, the girls are cute too. Being in San Francisco, you get your occasional weird dresser, but it adds to the diversity.

Forging a social life is a little bit harder, as it is a Jesuit school and there aren't a lot of parties on campus. I know most of my friends from the dorms, so I count that as the best way to start relationships, both friend-wise and romantically.

USF is a beautiful campus with a lot of attractive people. Students dress well, with lots of girls showing skin, even in the classroom. However, due to San Francisco’s unpredictable weather, people tend to come to school wearing lots of layers, with cardigans and coats in constant rotation. The guys, typically dressed in jeans and T-shirts, are generally friendlier than the girls, or at the very least, more approachable. Girls are stereotyped as being catty or cliquey, but that’s the private-school stigma talking. Most students are nice and easy to talk to, especially once you’ve shared a class or two. 

Students often complain about the ratio of girls to guys, and more specifically, the lack of available dating prospects. This is a common issue with smaller schools, though the small number of undergraduates in no way diminishes the overall attractiveness of the students. And because USF is diverse, all stereotypes aside, there are many good-looking guys and girls. The hard part isn’t finding them—it’s getting to know them. Since USF is set in one of the most interesting cities in the nation, most students look elsewhere for dates.

Social Scene
The residence halls are vital to the social lives of younger students at USF, particularly because underclassmen are required to live on campus. Each residence hall has an RHA (Residence Hall Association) representative who works with resident advisers (RAs) to put on special events and social gatherings. Also, USF's small population allows those living on campus to make a solid group of friends early on, and that tends to carry on after people have moved off campus. Involvement in clubs and organizations at school and studying in the UC or outside of Harney are also great ways for students to mingle and meet.
Hookups or Relationships?
More often than not, students dating at USF are involved in relationships. However, casual hookups are inevitable at any college, and USF is no exception. Hand-holding couples sit out on the grassy areas around campus on warm days, just like everyone else.
Dress Code
At school and in the city, anything goes. Most of the USF population dresses to impress, even for an 8 a.m. lecture. Since there are a lot of wealthy students on campus, there are a lot of stylish, well-dressed people to see. Still, just as many students come to class in sweatpants and USF-logo attire, hand-sewn tops, and thrift clothing. And because there are so many students in each category, everyone is content to wear whatever they want.
