    If you care more about the city you're living in than the education you're getting then USF is for you. Not to say that the education isn't good, but I'm sure there are hundreds of schools that could offer the same level or a better education for much less. San Francisco is fun until you realize that you have to find off-campus housing after your first year which is no easy feat. Just make sure that you don't let the magic of the city blind you to what the school really is.

    If you are looking for a school that isn't overwhelmingly large, has a supportive faculty environment, and is in a city where there is an unlimited number of places and things to explore, then USF is the school for you. While the dining courts are merely average, USF includes muni passes for its students in the tuition to allow you to travel throughout the city to try many other new places. If you are also looking into the nursing or business programs, USF holds a high reputation for these majors since they specifically cater toward these students and offer many resources for these programs.

  • I am a past student here

    I expected my college to have its own little community where everyone could grow and learn together, and usf let me down. While the students and professors are motivated it's very much like high school, not once did I feel challenged or engaged it just felt like I had to be there to get my degree. Most students are unhappy with their field of study and constantly contemplate switching majors. Everyone seems unhappy about something, which makes for a really bad experience as a student, I suggest joining a learning community like SII or MBS in order to form some kind of community. People see the university leadership as working against the students, only giving housing to freshmen, constantly changing the dining facilities and not promoting clubs or activities.

    be prepared for the hills and the steps, there are a lot of them. if you must have a class in lone mountain, try to plan all of your classes up there for the day or make the class your first class of the day.
