  • A very beautiful school. Well kept and great campus. Unfortunately, USD is not all hyped up like people think. It is difficult to get the classes that you want (also due to the few amount of courses available). The tuition is very expensive and it seems to just be going to the aesthetic of the campus. You have to do everything their way or you get nothing. Thought that this school would set me and my mates up for job careers and help us find jobs, but no such luck thus far. After graduating, all they keep asking for is money and not once do they ever ask to help you look for a job. Make sure you dont just get distracted by the look of the school. Yes, it is a beautiful campus with an ocean view, but there is more to USD that meets the eye. Do your research before coming here!
  • I love USD. It's a catholic school but they support and promote all the religions. Staffs are really supportive. Very friendly environment. Faculties are awesome. We can meet our president twice a semester in Fire Talk meetings. Their psychology faculties are really well educated and tough. USD is like my second home. Campus is so beautiful, safe, and clean. Libraries are perfect here.
  • Dustin Hollabaugh graduated with honors? It certainly wasn't for his English or spelling. He is an alumnus, not an alumni. Oh, by the way, he doesn't know how to use too instead of to. It is a great university for its professors, campus, climate and location. It gives the person who barely got by in college a chance to excel in graduate school so that once they graduate they become a part of the alumni.
  • I am an alumni who graduated in 2009 with honors. From my perspective USD lacks an academic focus and caters to wealthy students regardless of their ability. Tuition is far to high for the quality of education you will receive. The financial aide office encourages students and parents to take out large loans and the school prioritizes increasing the size of its endowment over lowering the total cost to current students. There are much better schools in California at a lower cost. I cannot recommend my alumamater to prospective students.
  • You guys need Muslim places of worship its all Catholics and I don"t think it would be a good idea for any other religious people to go there and expect to have a place of worship for them. Its very sad considering you guys are a University.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
