What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I had a rough start finding friends, I ultimately grew to love the University of San Diego. Overall, the people are friendly, and I cannot rave enough about how kind and accessible the professors are. There are a few administrative hiccups that I would like to see fixed in future years, but in any type of organization there is room for change and growth. Housing is great as long as you're in the Valley. Chances are you'll get your first choice as well due to the large amount of on campus housing available. Clubs and Campus Organizations are slowly but steadily growing in number, so there's a good chance you'll find something that's perfect for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of San Diego provides something most colleges I've looked into don't: a Catholic-based education. I find my own personal faith very important, especially as I grow into a young adult. To be able to learn in an atmosphere where "being religious" is the norm is what really drew me to the school. Of course, there are other aspects of the school that are also incredible! I admire the campus and how beautiful it is. I think if a college is willing to put forth the effort not only help their students grow but make them comfortable as they do so (by surrounding them with such incredible, visual, luxuries), then the school is worth every penny. I fully support their education programs and their classes sizes, as I find that a small class environment is an easier way to learn because you can more effectively bond with classmates and teachers. USD is an outstanding school and I hope I can be a Torero in the umpcoming years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of San Diego is a great school for certain people. It is a gorgeous campus, has a ton of food options and intimate class sizes. These were my biggest advantages when it came to USD since my environment impacts my work ethic majorly. The food was important to me because I am a vegetarian and finding a campus with a sufficient amount of options can be difficult. I am not vegan, but I have been told there is a good amount of options for vegans as well as flexibility in order to accommodate dietary needs. I personally learn best in smaller classes because I feel less pressure when it comes to asking questions as well as presentations. At USD you are not just a number or a paying customer. Your professor knows your name, when you miss class they reach out and make sure you are okay, you mean something to USD. Part of this is also because you pay enough. USD is a great school to attend, but it is a major investment since as of 2019 the overall cost of attendance has moved to a whopping $70,999. Yes this is a big number, but as someone who is paying for college on their own I can say there is a lot fincancial aid available and you can always appeal for more help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been a student at three different Universities being active duty service member and a spouse of an active duty service member. Everything from the application process, to orientation, to the facilities and professor have been nothing less than an amazing experience. This school guides you very well and pushes you to get involved. University of San Diego is by far one of the best school I have been a part of and I am so grateful for all of the support from day one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USD is a great place for students looking for a smaller school with professors and staff who actually care about your well being and success. The academics are a nice balance between being challenging yet not overwhelming. The student body is for the most part, diverse and full of really nice, respectful people. I like that the professors and school in general seem to really want us to graduate with a path moving forward. And finally, the location is perfect! Plenty to do and see and San Diego, plus our campus is one of the most beautiful places to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USD was my first choice university, and overall it has exceeded my hopes! There are so many on-campus organizations to get involved with whatever you like, and I feel very engaged in class with most of my professors. I love the campus, and I feel like we are pampered at this beautiful school, but hard work is also very valued here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of San Diego was everything I dreamed it would be. Class sizes are small, typically can range from 10-30 students. Professors are involved and are very accessible. Catholic masses are held throughout the week. There are many study spots on campus, and if you choose not to stay on campus there are plenty of coffee/boba shops around campus that you can study at. There are buses that can take you all around campus or you can walk, ride your bike, scooter, or skateboard (only about a 10-15 minute walk from upperclassmen dorms to main campus OR a 7 minute walk from freshman housing to main campus). I think the only downside to USD is the lack of diversity and expensive tuition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am from San Diego and have always been attracted to the USD due to its beautiful campus and views. It has a highly ranked baseball team, which I really enjoy to watch because the ballpark is amazing. It also has palm tree's all around the campus, which make it seem like a resort of some kind. The classes are all really small and intimate. Most class sizes are 20-35 people and the teachers are always easy to get ahold of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience as a student at the University of San Diego has been good thus far. As a liberal arts institution, USD has offered me enough academic rigor and intellectual stimulation. The requirements to graduate may perhaps seem tedious to some, but overall serve to provide a well-rounded education. Getting the classes you want is typically not a big issue, and professors are always easily accessible. Campus food is fairly decent, but could really use more variety. Upon arriving at the school, I was struck by how small the campus actually was; at times the school felt very cramped. However, with USD's close proximity to downtown San Diego, there are plenty of opportunities to venture out and explore the city.
