University Evaluator/Transfer Counselor

Bhavi Patel

Hello! My name is Bhavi Patel and I am one of the Admissions Counselors / University Evaluators in the Transfer Center here at USF. I'm excited that you are considering USF to continue your education! I came to USF from the Foothill-DeAnza Community College district where I worked in various departments (including the Transfer Center at De Anza) over the past 4 years.

USF welcomes transfer students from all walks of life as they bring diverse perspectives to the campus. The University's location in the heart of San Francisco offers numerous opportunities to combine your classroom learning with practical experiences through internships, service learning, field trips and more! And with our small class sizes, you will find a learning environment with more individualized attention, where the professor knows you by name and where you can engage in meaningful discussions with faculty and peers.

I would strongly encourage you to come visit the campus and look through the course catalog as you will find many unique programs that encompass the university's values of social justice, community service and a global perspective. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question or concerns or if I can be of help throughout your transfer journey. I look forward to meeting many of you at the your College's Transfer Fairs or here on our beautiful campus and hopefully welcoming you as a future Don!

Wishing you all the best,
Bhavi Patel
