University of San Diego Reviews
My experience at USD started off fairly good. However, it has become increasingly obvious to me over the years that this school wants nearly nothing to do with the Catholic values they claim to espouse. They employ faculty and administrators whose teachings flagrantly contradict Catholic doctrine on a daily basis, instead leading students away from God's truth and towards leftist propaganda. Furthermore, they demonstrated an alarming lack of transparency, ethics, and respect for students and their families when working through the CV19 pandemic. The value of my education has entirely gone down the toilet, and I now feel like I have wasted my time at an institution that has lied to me and taken advantage of my money.
Campus is nice though.
The students. During my years at USD, I have met many kind and wholesome individuals but those were not easy to come by. The amount of toxic, spoiled, affluent, and intellectually challenged are a dime a dozen. I've experienced many universities but USD is by far the most fake and hypocritical of them all. Don't believe everything the website says. Good luck.
