Who We Are

Come Change the World
From Here

Like the city that surrounds it, the University of San Francisco offers you energy, optimism, and opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else. USF is a climb up Lone Mountain. USF is the poem you write for an engineering project. USF is small classes with professors who know their stuff and know your name. USF is late nights in Gleeson. USF is why? and why not? and says who? and what if? It’s ice cream with friends in the Mission. It’s boba at Baker Beach. It’s a ride on Muni. It’s an internship downtown. It’s shadowing a nurse in a neighborhood clinic. USF is a practice job interview with your career coach. It’s playing basketball in the fall and watching baseball in the spring. USF is an open door. USF is a place at the table. USF is you in the heart of the city that invents tomorrow, surrounded by people who care, working to change the world for the better.
