First-Year Student

Here are some suggestions to get involved during your first year at USD:

Attend Sunday Night Mass

Every Sunday at 7 and 9 pm we have a student-led liturgy in Founders Chapel. Join the community in prayer and get involved in the different liturgical ministries. More information.

Go on a retreat

University Ministry offers retreats specifically for First-Year students, including Pre-Orientation and First-Year Retreat. Gather with other First-Year students off-campus and reflect on your USD experience. More information.

Come on a Tijuana Day Trip

Each month, University Ministry take a group of students across the border to build connections with community partners, do some service work in the community, as well as learn about social justice and immigration issues. More information.

Join a UM Small Group

Each residence hall houses a UM Small Group that meets weekly for prayer, reflection, and faith sharing. The UM Small Groups are a great way to connect with others who are interested in exploring in their faith. More information.
