    I'd recommend anyone that is used to the same homogeneous environment at USD to attend, and anyone who is not should take the time to find something about this university that truly stands out to them. If you are a person of color, you should expect to be a bit alienated; however, if you find your niche, it may not be as bad. Student Support Services, especially Summer Bridge, is a life saver for us! You should definitely look into it.

    The campus is small and the school spirit is pretty much nonexistent. The Summer Bridge program is a great way to experience the campus and meet people before school starts. During OLE weekend, just embrace the craziness and business of it.
