David Tobias

Greetings and welcome to the first step in becoming a future Don! My name is Dave Tobias and I am the Director of Freshman Admission at the University of San Francisco. I'm very excited that you're considering joining the USF family.

The University of San Francisco is a unique place, mirroring the magnificent city we call home. Being in the heart of San Francisco provides you with opportunities no other institution can --- unbelievable internships with the world's most dynamic businesses, rich cultural experiences in one of the most diverse cities in the world, and a vibrant community passionate about social change.

The Jesuit culture of the University of San Francisco provides an identity that very few colleges or universities share, and many strive to emulate. Being a first-hand product of Jesuit education, I can tell you that the critical thinking, interpersonal communication, and reading and writing skills you develop here will last you a lifetime. Our students are involved in engaged learning, and it shows in the work they produce, careers they enter, and world they change.

I look forward to working with you throughout the college search process. If you're visiting campus, drop me a line and I'll be sure to say hello. Know that I am happy to help and look forward to welcoming you to the USF family!
