University of San Francisco (USF) is a private, Jesuit, Roman Catholic university in San Francisco, California. Founded in 1855, USF is the oldest institution for higher learning in San Francisco and the third oldest institution for higher learning in California. USF rests on a hilltop in a quiet, 55-acre setting between the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park and is equidistant from the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay. USF's nickname is "The Hilltop," appropriately named since the campus is located at the peak of one of San Francisco's major hills. USF's close historical ties with the City of San Francisco are reflected in the University's motto, Pro Urbe et Universitate, For the City and University. USF's 8,500-member student body is composed of students from 75 countries, and is ranked in the Top 15 national universities for student diversity and international student enrollment. The University of San Francisco is known for its public service efforts (McCarthy Center), its scholarly research on Asian and American Studies (Center for the Pacific Rim), and its nationally recognized graduate programs such as law, business, nursing, and environmental management.
