Student Reviews
  • Like any other school, your campus experience is what you make of it. Being located in the city is great because there are so many opportunities open for students to advance their career. Joining extracurriculars that fit my interests really enhanced my experience and I am learning to really love my school.
  • It's a great school with a great environment. I'm honestly blessed to be studying here. Academics are important to me and my professors are always available. Since it's in San Francisco, there's always something to do every day. I love how political we can get and how the San Francisco environment encourages it. There is no judgement at this school and it accepts everyone which is probably the best part.
  • USF is overall a pretty great school, it's smaller than some, but I found that that allows for more one on one with not only professors, but advisors and even peers. I'm going into my second year and I'm pretty excited to go back to meet up with the friends I made, and the classes I signed up for. Really going to USF is what you make of it, I think its a great place to be.
