This is my school, and I chose this school because it is the best!

The quality of education is great. Every class that I have taken at this university has been extremely helpful and powerful for my ongoing growth, whether it be a research methods class, a group dynamics seminar, or an investigation into non-profit organizations in Guatemala.

The professors are here because they do care and love teaching. All of my professors provide readings that open my perspective and present information in class in a way that is interesting and useful. Sometimes there are interpersonal learning activities, films, and field trips that supplement my personal learning. My academic advisor is an amazing person who has studied leadership, theology, and education and has been a great resource in helping me to plan for my future.

The campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in the country…Spanish Renaissance style buildings on top of a hill overlooking the city amidst palm trees. The buildings and grounds are very clean and well cared for.

Established in 1949, USD has not been around for as long as other major, well-known universities and is only beginning to acquire a really strong academic reputation. Lately, it has been getting very competitive and seems to be harder and harder to be accepted into year after year. Their law school and business school rival larger schools with bigger reputations in terms of test scores and selectivity numbers alone, for example. I could totally understand. Who wouldn't want a first-rate education on a beautiful campus in one of America's most awesome cities with access to lots of beaches and fun places to go?
