5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe and cared for on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I attend one of the USF branch campuses, and I have to say, I am very impressed! The administrators are super helpful and go out of their way to make sure you get what you need when you need it. My professors have been bright and approachable. And yes, USF is expensive. I come from a low socioeconomic background and sometimes I worry about the debt I am accruing; but in the end, I know it will have been worth it. I encourage all undergrad students to follow their dreams - the money will come if you're determined and passionate about what you do. Overall - I am very pleased with USF :)

Overall Experience: In the heart of one of the best cities in the world

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are on the smaller side, usually ranging from 10-20 people. Of course, the science classes have about a hundred students, due to its popularity. The coursework is challenging but manageable, and the professors clearly have a drive and passion about what they are teaching. They make classes interesting and fun, and really understand their students' needs.

Overall Experience: USF offers multiple internships to all of its students, taking into account their year-level, experience, and major. Career advisors are extremely helpful, and most employers have a good impression of USF, making it more likely that students will obtain a job.

Health & Safety: Crime is a little problem on campus, and there are multiple services that are willing to help when they occur. Garages are not usually watched over at night, so there have been multiple break ins and stolen items. A person was mugged when they were walking from our lower campus to our upper campus, but the perpetrator does not seem to be a student.

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for two weeks, and throughout the school year, stayed with some friends in their dorm rooms. The dorms for Freshmen could use renovation, as the showers, lounge areas, and kitchens are old. I've heard good things about the other dorm buildings, including their spacious rooms, their improved showers, and their updated kitchens.

Greek Life: Greek life is very important to some of my friends, and they're extremely dedicated to upholding their fraternities/sororities' values. They host several events throughout the year that are exciting and appropriate, and feel like a second family to some people. On the flip side, there are students that do not bother with Greek life at all, and no one feels pressured to be a part of it. It's nice being in a college that gives you the option to be a part of something, but doesn't take offense should you decide not to join.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports teams and events are not that important at USF, and I feel that the majority students are more interested in studying and exploring the city, rather than sitting down to watch a game. That being said, there are definitely many supporters of our sports teams, and they attend home games and create little parties in the lounges to watch away games on TV.

Overall Experience: I've made many new friends here, and while I am a native to SF, it's been a joy seeing all these places through the eyes of newcomers. I love my professors, and the only complaint is that it is very expensive here.

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.
