I originally came to USF as a nursing major as their nursing program is very highly ranked. I ended up changing majors to biology my sophomore year and am so happy I did. I have loved my class here and have had some of the best teachers with exceptional experience in their field. Moreover, I have made relationships with friends that will be life long. The party scene and Greek life here is not very big, so if that's what you're looking for in a school, you may want to evaluate your choices. What you lose in the party/Greek scene, however, you gain in the amazing setting that is San Francisco and all the activities it has to offer. Overall, I am very happy with my choice here, but the school is not for everyone, so come for a visit to see if it's a fit for you!

Love it here, from the minute I stepped onto campus I knew that this school would have my heart. Surround yourself with the right people and experiences, and you're bound to have the college experience of your life! Only thing that I would love to see improve is the food choices offered. Maybe add more healthy options, along with a greater variety in general!
University of San Francisco is located right in the center of the San Francisco, 8 miles away to Ocean Beach and 8 miles away to down town, Union Square. San Francisco is known for its diversity of food, by taking bus 43, 38,31, and 5 from the school, you can explore from Off the Grid, to Sichuan food, then to soft serve Ice cream. It's a foodie's heaven!
