Majors: I am a history major as well as a duel degree student working toward my teaching credential. USF's duel degree program in teaching is what attracted me to apply to the school. I really love the program and the people that are in it. The history program is also great. It's on the smaller side so class sizes of upper division classes are small and students really get to know their professors/advisers/classmates.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I opted out of the schools health care since I have coverage through another agency. I have also never had to use the health care or hospital that it located near campus. But, from what I understand its pretty good.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really know how the Greek system is set up here at USF. I personally have no interest in the Greek system, so I have never really asked about where they get housing or how difficult it is to pledge.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like most of my professors, but the bureaucracy that is attached to filing paperwork for taking summer classes off campus is tiresome. There is a lot of hoops that you have to jump through.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: One of the reasons I chose to come to USF was the alumni network and the potential for internships/jobs.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's okay, but I haven't really explored the city that much since I commute in from the East Bay.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's ok most of the time, but living on Lone Mountain means very few options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on Campus is easy since you're close to your classes and have access to a meal plan. It's easy but very expensive.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: the overall experience was good. Whenever I contacted the school they were available and were happy to help me.

Greek Life: Can't comment on this since it doesn't apply to me.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Don't really know much about athletics since I am in the graduate program and we have little time to attend events while working at the same time.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: i am roommate with a couple of friends of mine working in the financial district so finding a place to live was easy. The cost of living is high though, so be prepare to spend your savings.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: In terms of dining there is a large amount of options. The only thing is that eating out is pretty expensive, but if you have the money to spend your options are vast.

5 College Junior

Administration: Every time I have contacted them, they have been very nice and helpful with me.

Party Scene: The city has a lot to offer and since is small and with a high number of young crowd of people there is always something to do.

Scholarships: I applied for the school and I was immediately given a scholarship. I am very grateful for this since it will cover a portion of my tuition.

College Junior

Campus Food: Because I am graduate school we are outside the campus, and therefore can't comment on food. Our building is located near the financial district so we get to eat food from around the area not campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
