4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe overall. There have been a few reports of muggings/robberies but I've never had any issues.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like I had no problem finding a job/internship because I studied computer science which is in very high demand. However, the school was not helpful at all with finding internships for my major.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are small and overcrowded. Some dorms are close to classrooms while others are a 10 minute bus ride away. Overall, I expected better dorms at a private university.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is not prominent

3 College Senior

Athletics: The school has a gym but it's small and frequently over crowded. The equipment is also old.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The food is expensive and terrible. The financial aid is super unhelpful. The school seems to be stuck in the previous decade with a lack of technology and a lot of physical paperwork instead of digital forms. However, the computer science professors are great and helpful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Staff are extremely friendly and seem like they really want to see the students succeed. Classmates all typically get along with each other, though cliques do form within the cohort.

3 College Senior

Diversity: PC culture. Well-intentioned in diversity, etc. but politically driven. That said, critics tend to ironically become minorities. Statistically, the student body is ethnically, racially, economically, religiously, sexually, etc. diverse. Maybe even politically. Culturally, it is arguably masked by a progressive agenda.

Drug Safety: Detrimental to health and success at USF. It's a city campus with a surprising influx of students inclined towards drug and alcohol use. I would not recommend family or friends to USF.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: USF has a promising school mission but lacks in campus culture and affordability. If you're not cliquey, it's easy to fall through the gaps in the community. Found myself conforming versus "finding myself."

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overpriced. Career prospect and degree value likely do not match tuition worth 50k. Jobs, internships, and quality employers are 25% earned and 75% pre-determined. That said, it is indefinite to interact closely with promising students and staff. Career center is limited; you use most of its worth in first two years at USF. In short, pick the right major based on department, success rate, student composition, and relevance on campus.

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.
