3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in the greek life so I don't know how to put this.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There's no football team, but there are a lot of other sports available.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like it so far, it's very different from a public university.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the most part, I really enjoy my school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professor's in my program are eager to teach and assist students in both graduate school and finding auditions, internships and jobs after we graduate.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's not really an issue with safety on our campus, as far as I've seen. I mostly just feel scared walking by myself at night because of my status as a transgender and gay person.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is fine, but I did have to threaten to sue the school because they tried to place me in the female or gender inclusive dorms even though I made it clear that I identify as male. In the state of California, trans people have the right to access any sex-segregated facility in correspondence with their gender identity, so it would not have been legal for them to have not allowed me into the male dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really talk to many people in Greek Life. The Sorority girls are okay, but the Fraternity guys generally live up to their stereotype of being pretentious.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has the unique major of Performing Arts and Social Justice--which are two of my greatest passions as a gay, transgender, and Chicano student performing artist. I love the opportunities I've had access to, having been involved in five productions in my Freshman year alone (actor, stagehand, director, dancer, and then finished the year off with a leading role in an original production). There is also the oldest college theater group west of the Mississippi, The College Players, which I am on the Executive Board as the Historian for the upcoming 2016-2017 season. It is unique and provides opportunities not only for actors, but technical theater, choreographers, directors, and writers, too.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Strict policies on campus. Parties are off campus and in the city.

Party Scene: Nothing major happens in the dorms. If anything, there are sober hang outs.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a Nursing Major, the program itself is competitive. However it pushes the students to excel quickly and effectively. This summer I was able to work in two hospitals through my connections I have made within the Nursing Program.

Overall Experience: The courses at University of San Francisco are enjoyable and there are many options to sign up for classes that are categorized as General Education classes but always relate to your major. The class sizes are small and inclusive. The professors are supportive and continue to work with the students whether you are excelling or needing extra help. The content broadens your perspective and allows you to develop as you continue your education.

Health & Safety: Public Safety is very accessible especially since our campus is in San Francisco. I feel safe walking alone at night on campus and I know that if ever I feel unsafe I can call Public Safety to give me a ride or check up on a potential incidence on campus. At night all of the buildings, require you to get in with your student ID so the level of security is very high.

Campus Housing: I transferred from San Jose State where the dorm rooms were not clean and desperately needed to be updated. In comparison to the dorm rooms at SJSU, the dorm rooms at USF were like the Ritz Carlton. The residential buildings were very safe and relatively quiet. It was much harder to make friends in the dorms because my building did not promote having people in rooms just to hang out in.

Greek Life: Greek life at University of San Francisco does resemble the typical ideology of "Greek life." The students in Greek Life uphold the values of University of San Francisco. Those who are Greek are inclusive and encourage students to give back to the community and uphold excellence. The GPA average for Greeks in the Greek system is higher than the University average. In Delta Zeta alone, the Chapter of the Year of 2016 recipients, there are 19 women in the chapter that hold Executive positions in clubs across the university.

Athletics: Although University of San Francisco is a relatively small university, sports allow the students to engage with one another and participate in showing their school spirit. The sporting events allow students to create memories they will remember forever. I was able to conquer my fear of singing to a large crowd at the basketball game when I sang the National Anthem. I was encouraged by the students in the stands and felt the true spirit of University of San Francisco.

Health & Safety: SF is just a dangerous city

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: In Fromm, the all girls campus housing, the RA's were insanely strict making it very hard to have a social life or feel like the dorms were a safe space. Furthermore, my experiences with the student conduct office was extremely poor and unjustified.

Overall Experience: Living in SF is amazing because all of the opportunities there are to experience new things, but I want to go to a school for the academic portion not just the city; I can live in SF at another part of my life but I want a college experience.

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.
