This Jesuit university provides a small-town feel in the midst of San Francisco. With well-respected programs in nursing, busines and law, you can find good academic challenges here. Do not, however, go looking for a conservative Catholic education here. The Jesuits running the university are of the liberal variety. So if you want a conservative education, this is not the place. However, the faculty and staff actively promote admirable social justice issues and students do become well informed on such world issues. A very diverse international student body and a reknowned campus radio station round out this local school.
