3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: some buildings are great, others arent.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This school gives you a university grant if you are full time. Since I was a transfer student, I did not need to be full time my first year because I took a majority of my general education at a community college. Therefore, my first year I did not get financial aid. If you want financial aid, be a full time student.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I like with my parents off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Security sends us emails whenever a crime happened on campus. They keep us well informed and they also send us text messages or anything that may be happening on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Each student is unique and you can tell that they are working hard to keep up their grades.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not know of any parties on campus. A lot of people just go to bars or clubs for parties. Because greek life is not that present and most students live off campus, there really is no party scene at school.

Majors: USF has fairs each semester to help students get jobs or internships. I have not had an internship yet, but I do plan on looking for one. I worked at a summer camp for the past 7 years. I do not think I will have an problems looking for internship if I choose to do so.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are plenty of things to do in the city. However, our campus is on the edge of the city. Therefore, we have to take public transportation to get there.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's San Francisco. Don't get stuck in your dorm of fall into drinking and partying every weekend. San Francisco offers you a totally unique experience outside of your classes. Just get out there.

Administration: Administration can be tough some times. Dorms are very strict about their policies, namely regarding visitors. I do not know exactly how strict they are about drugs and alcohol, and what the average consequences are for getting caught.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: While food in San Francisco is amazing, the cost of most restaurant will have you eating on campus most nights. Also, San Francisco is not a night time city, so you won't have much to choose from after about 10:00.

Health & Safety: I, or anyone I know, have had any issues with safety on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I haven't had the desire to do any partying but I hear that while they are available if you really want to go, it can be tough to get into one and not that enjoyable once you do.

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.
