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!
Review University of San Francisco
My overall experience from the application process to starting my second semester has been amazing. When I reached out for information and answers to my questions throughout the application process, I was met with caring and extremely helpful staff. They truly wanted to help and guide me through the process, something I had never experienced before with other schools. I am extremely grateful for not only the school administration, but also for my amazing academic advisor/professor Dru Bhattacharya! From the minute I was accepted into the MPH program, he helped me get a scholarship for my first semester of school, and checked up on my progress often. Overall, I am extremely happy with my experience at USF!
USF has resources and workshops for your major. Intramural clubs and major/ethnic based clubs and programs are great.Housing system is one confusing thing:there is a lottery system so you can get housing,it just depends on the invoming freshman.Converse with upperclassmen.Often,you USF will have class dicussions or events about controversial topics such as diversity,personal identity,safety,and abuse.You have 18 credits for:your core class,major classes,and minor class will range from 1-4 credits.As for books,sometimes professors upload documentation or books and may not require a book at all so always ask if it is.You have a major advisor and a CASA coach.In addition,they have a handshake resource that helps with internships,upcoming events,and jobs;3 internship are required.Join programs:they are very helpful and expose you to more resources.Spend time exploring and applying to internships in down time so you're productive.Time management is key to make sure you make your life easy.
