For Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, Camino and Founders Halls will be offline for renovation work as a part of USD's Renaissance Plan. Cultivate LLC students will be temporarily relocated to the San Antonio de Padua (SAP) building for the 2020-21 academic year.

San Antonio de Padua (SAP) offers 41 units consisting of studios for three residents and large one-bedroom apartments for four residents. A laundry room and a study/piano lounge are located on the ground level of this three-story building. Each unit is entered from an interior hallway and some have balcony views of Tecolote Canyon and Mission Bay. There is an outdoor living space that features a large seating area, fire pit, lounge chairs, and patio furniture perfect for spending time with friends or pursuing outdoor study groups.

But what I love about the Cultivate LLC is that there is always a strong emphasis on real-world application. Students learn to think critically about the impact of their actions on the environment and the community. Ultimately, I believe students within the Cultivate LLC graduate from USD prepared to face the most pressing challenges in the world today. – Paige Hopkins, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Cultivate

Begin quote The thing I truly love about the Cultivate LLC is that it is a home for those who not only care about the environment and the world around them, but it can also be a place for those that want to grow themselves and their peers. Being a Cultivator means that you can not only instill change in the environment and Earth, but also in yourself and in your peers. College is a time where you learn a lot about yourself and learn to grow, and Cultivate LLC is the perfect environment for just that. – Tomy Vettukallel, Coaching Residential Assistant for Cultivate
