USF is set in one of the most diverse cities in the country, with its campus being every bit as beautiful as the setting itself. Lone Mountain boasts gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay, downtown, the Pacific Ocean, and the color tops of many eclectic neighborhoods in the city. On campus itself, you’ll find beautiful flowers, cherry blossom trees, and exotic foliage planted by students and groundskeepers alike. Though many buildings on campus have recently been refurbished, most are eye-catching and distinctive. However, students tend to complain about the interiors of older residence halls, which aren’t typically aesthetically pleasing. St. Ignatius Church, located right at the corner of Main Campus, is known for its unique beauty and its sense of community.
The War Memorial Gym has recently been renovated, in addition to ongoing renovations around Harney. In addition, USF hopes to improve the parking situation in the next few years, wanting desperately to add needed parking spaces around campus. The University is also looking for more ways to improve pedestrian walkways, which will be another important, yet costly, venture. USF is always looking for ways to spruce up facilities on campus, in order to make things more efficient, but also more attractive.
