Maddy - 2/8/2017
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2016
"Kinesiology at USF was an amazing experience. All of my peers were dedicated to learning and the faculty was entirely devoted to the student body. If I had to do it all over again, I absolutely would. Being in the city was a dream come true to me, I love everything about being in a big city, but it makes it much different from a "normal" college experience. So much of the school experience revolves around being there and all the opportunity that comes with it. Everything from the clinics that gave me internships to the places I explored, University of San Francisco was a phenomenal place to go to school."

"USF has been an amazing opportunity for my professional career as well as developing a mindset for the world. In this world, people aren't just looking for bodies to get work done, they are looking for people who have the heart and mind to make a difference in companies and ultimately in the world. With the Organizational Behavior and Leadership degree, I have learned essentials skills and developed key insights that helped me in with private, non-profit and religious organizations. The advisors, financial aids, and career center were well-knowledged and guided me into a career path that impacted me and my company positively!"

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2000
"The University of San Francisco is a small, private college in the heart of San Francisco. The location is one of the best in the city for easy access to all the major tourist destinations as well as all the restaurants and sights favored by the locals. Because everything is so convenient and public transportation is close there is no need for a car, which is good because parking is at a premium. The school is relatively small but still has all the amenities and facilities of a larger college including a fitness facility and large library. The dorms and main campus have recently been upgraded and are quite nice and make living on campus really enjoyable, they have traditional dorms as well as apartments for upperclassmen. The cafeteria is really nice with tons of different options to suite everyone including a coffee shop for hanging out and studying. The campus has tons of outdoor spaces to hang out and a lot of study and gathering rooms to work on homework and group projects. I majored in biology and found the program to be rigorous and interesting. I took a lot of great class and got a lot of lab experience. Most of the classes required a lab so that a lot of hands on learning took place. The labs were all were modern and up to date with the latest technologies. The labs in the last couple years have also been updated to keep up with current technologies. Overall it was a great school and I would recommend it."

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2008
"I loved USF. The focus on education paired with community in a diversity city made for an exhilarating 4 years. Located in one of the best cities in the world and led by the Jesuit order, things seem to fall in place and perfect example of the real world has to offer. Go here, you won't regret it."

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 1993
"The school has changed since I attended, but the part of USF I appreciated the most was the fact that the entire city became our classroom. THe diversity of the student body also played a major role in shaping my college experience. Hving professors who also had careers outside the school, as well - was a big bonus. The spiritual component of the Jesuit education can also not be given enough credit."

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014
"University of San Francisco is a great college. I did a professional degree program for working adults. This is a wonderful way to obtain a degree while working full-time. USF provides this program with all the perks typically given to younger students who attend the actual campus by providing us a satellite campus that gives us the feeling of the university's feel and services. Financial Aid works with students to assist them in quick and very helpful ways. The advisor I had was always available to assist me in graduation inquiries as well as personal crisis. The USF family is a great family to be proud I received a degree from."
