Connect With San Francisco
The city of San Francisco isn't just a backdrop to our campus; it's a part of our campus. Come connect with the city. Soak up its energy. Celebrate its diversity. Work with neighbors on community-service projects. Explore internships and jobs and thousands of things to learn and to do and to love. Come change the world from here.
Make the City Your Classroom
Come to USF and take community-engaged learning classes. These classes put you to work at local nonprofits and other organizations. They enable you to change the world not just after you graduate but right now.
Come to USF and make a difference — like building a tiny-house village for young people who need homes.
Come to USF and land an internship (aim for three internships in four undergraduate years) in every field that you can imagine — technology, finance, government, health care, education, the arts, hospitality, social services . . .
Meet the USF graduate who helps other first-generation college students gain work experience.
