            A life changing experienceYThe facilities are amazing, both campuses were great. Lone Mountain campus is really hard to get to (it's up a hill with like 6 flights of stairs) but it is a gorgeous building. The library is beautiful, I remember that I spent most of my weekends there studying. The students on the other hand are very diverse of whom I am still friends with until today!

            USF Inspires, Promotes, Reinforces, and Enhances the lives of Students.YIn general, the University of San Francisco exceeded in providing the skills to succeed in my professional career. At the same time, USF promoted personal growth, and interest in community involvement. I strongly recommend USF because it emphasizes positive change.

          • Testimony
            1989-1992, Ed. D., Organizational Leadership

            The World At Your FeetYFor an exceptional education, nothing can top what a Jesuit university offers. USF's doctoral program in organization and leadership opened up the world to me. My professors supported my outrageous goal to conduct my research in Russia during the collapse of the Soviet Union. Life was never the same from that point forward. Today, my research remains international in focus and I hold that same wide-eyed belief that the world is both my playground and a place where I can make a contribution to open doors for others.
