College Junior

Campus Food: Because I am graduate school we are outside the campus, and therefore can't comment on food. Our building is located near the financial district so we get to eat food from around the area not campus.

College Junior

Campus Housing: Can't really explain on housing due that I decided to dorm with a couple of friends. This of course is much cheaper than living in the campus dorm. Overall, the dorms is quite expensive due that the cost of living in San Francisco is high. This is nothing new as anyone who lives here already know that.

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and I love it! I live with 2 other guys and we are all great friends!

Off-Campus Dining: You wont find a better city for eating out!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Not a huge party school, there are party crowds though.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The school offers grants, I still would like more, loans are coming out of my ears.

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.
