4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't had much networking experience yet, but when looking for housing off campus I came across many USF alums who were happy to accommodate current USF students and had a lot of pride for their school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy on campus housing and its convenience for classes, but housing is incredibly hard to get after your freshman year and apartment hunting in SF is a nightmare.

Overall Experience: University of San Francisco (USF) is the best! It is safe and at the heart of San Francisco. Classes are small and I get to know everybody and become friends with my classmates. I enjoy Kasamahan, an organization for Filipino students. USF is a home away from home.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: i like how public safety can drive me home since I live within the approved distance from school. This is extremely helpful when I get off of class at 10pm.

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.
