Student Life

When students aren’t in class or out–and–about exploring San Diego, students get involved in activities that allow them to discover their social, athletic, philanthropic and even adventurous sides.

The University of San Diego’s clubs and organizations host events that function to do everything from teaching about other cultures to raising awareness of social issues. For a night of fun and laughter, students support Greek Life by attending talent shows and skits hosted by USD fraternities and sororities. On Wednesdays, students can take a break between classes and buy fresh, local produce from the Farmer’s Market in Plaza Menor. On the weekends, students can enjoy Friday Night Movies and the Saturday Night Live Concert series at Aromas hosted by USD’s student government, Associated Students. Many students choose to explore identities and experience cultures through the United Front Multicultural Center.

Tailgate parties at O’Toole’s or in Eagen Plaza are where you will find USD Torero fans before a big game. Students especially look forward to the annual Homecoming tailgate concert featuring well–known bands and artists.

For all those adventure–seekers, the Experiential Learning and Adventure Center offers mud caving, snorkeling in La Jolla, moonlight canoeing, rock climbing and even an eco–adventure Spring Break trip in Costa Rica. USD provides many fun and exciting opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom.

Students also get to voice their opinions and share their creative talent through three main media outlets designed exclusively for the USD community:

  • USDtv produces original programming on relevant news and entertainment available on campus television and on-line.
  • USD Student Radio broadcasts student DJs hosting talk and music shows, album and concert reviews and USD exclusive interviews.
  • The USD Vista is a weekly news publication that features on– and off–campus issues written and produced by students.
