I love the diversity that my school has. I have friends who are from different parts of the world and it's interesting to see that my school is such a melting pot.

The nursing program at USF is the top in California. The program well educates nursing students to not only do their jobs but to also care genuinely for patients. USF is a small campus with easy-access locations. Because it is in the middle of San Francisco, there is fast transportation and many local eateries and landmarks. I enjoy being in the fast-paced city life, since I grew up in San Francisco.


The University of San Francisco is unique in that it's core mission of giving back to communities in need is inherent in it's ora and cirriculum.

It is in San Francisco, so the student body is very diverse. The professors are AMAZING and really strive to see their students succeed. Unlike a public school, we, as students, are treated like people rather than numbers.


I attended a Lliberal Arts school outside Chicago for three years. It had 1900 students. I made friends with 950. I was at USF for a year and made zero friends. The school makes you feel out of place if you are white with a strait sexual preference. The schools professors are too busy to really get involved with the students, even though they are not the most respected professionals in their fields such as at Berkeley or UChicago. There is absolutely no sense of community, no one is on campus if classes aren't going on. Terrible place, EXPENSIVE!


There is great diversity in this university. the teachers genuinely care about both personal and academic growth of their students. it is a urban university with a small town feel.


The class size as stated before. The location and history of the University.


It's very diverse and small.


USF benefits from the surrounding diversity, progress and countless opportunities of the amazing city of San Francisco. Students can find anything that they want in our city and students quickly form a personal bond to this city.

The mix between USF's focus on social justice and the powerful San Francisco community create a perfect environment for students to find and develop the best version of themselves.


What is unique about our school is that it is very diverse. About 70% of students are international, so I get a very diverse feel when I walk around campus.

People are also very open to anyone and everyone, so it is easy to get comfortable in this kind of atmosphere and enjoy your college years.


It is very international. I am able to meet people from all over the world, both with peers and professors. The city of San Francisco is a huge part of what make USF so unique because it becomes a part of the campus. There are always so many adventures to be had.


I like the small classes but its the commitment of teachers to your doing well and excelling. If they see they can help push you further or expose you to something that will inspire you more in your chosen field they tell you. They push you, they praise, and they encourage. It is very one on one here even in large classes. The teachers knows if you cut class no two ways about it.


USF is a hidden gem. The media studies program is amazing and I feel like I am busy doing the things I want to be doing. Nothing bothers us more than when people confuse us with SFSU or UCSF -- we're nothing like them! Get it right.
