"USD's batch of professors is a sad group of teachers that are so far removed from what it means to be a student that they cannot even teach effectively. Their methods, workloads, and assignments are more accurately described as pointless busywork and are more suitable for high-school than a university. Each professor designs their course as if it is the only one that each student is/should take, and completely disregards the fact that many students have to take more than 15 units just to graduate on time because of the cumbersome core requirements--which require more GE classes than any other school I applied to. However, that is all applicable only if a student is lucky enough to be able to get into the class that they want, but this in and of itself is unlikely because even seniors can't get the classes that they want/need."

"Great school with small class sizes and a beautiful campus. The professors were extremely intelligent and were willing to go above and beyond for students. Classes were extremely interactive. Campus was the safest I have seen and dorms were larger than the average."

"USD is a school where so many opportunities are available and so much is offered to each student. While a majority of students come from privileged backgrounds, there is a growing number of first generation, lower income students with great academic background joining to make a diverse and exciting educational institution. Moreover, the students are very friendly, helpful and down to earth. The quality of instructions has prepared me for advanced dialogue and conversation, and each time I tell people that I am a recent USD graduate, their responses indicate that the greater community is aware of such prestige educational standards that we each are required to meet. I am proud to have attended USD! Great challenges, greater opportunities."
