The experience with other students and living in the heart of San Francisco is an unforgettable time.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The administration of the university only sees students as a form of revenue (which is to be expected of a private university), but it's rather blatant in every aspect, especially the housing issues and continual lawsuits from the City of San Francisco. The faculty are treated as expendable, giving them a frequent turnaround.
