College isn’t just about hitting the books 24-7, right? At USD, you can participate in one of the numerous intramural, wellness and recreational activities we have available or cheer on any of our 17 NCAA Division I athletic programs. With an ideal climate and an active student body, it’s easy to take your game to the next level!


Olé, olé, olé, olé!” If you attend any of USD’s many Athletic events or competitions, you’re likely to hear your fellow Torero’s joining in on the chant! Be sure you check out the NCAA athletic programs as well as their schedules on the USD Athletics website.


For the Toreros who like to exercise, USD offers fun fitness classes and programs like yoga, dance and aquatic trainings, just to name a few. You can also workout at either of our wonderful fitness centers: the McNamara Fitness Center in the Jenny Craig Pavilion or the Mission Fitness Center above the Mission's Café.

Outdoor Adventures

If you want to experience the natural wonders of Southern California, stop by Outdoor Adventures (OA) for all of your equipment needs. They have everything from backpacks to surfboards to camping gear. OA also offers guided trips that are open to the entire community to explore and play.

Places to Hang Out

While there is enough to keep you busy on campus, don’t forget that USD is located in “America’s Finest City!” San Diego and Southern California is home to many world famous attractions like Disneyland, the San Diego Zone/Wild Animal Park and many, many more. You can purchase discounted tickets for these attractions at the Hahn UC Ticket Office!


Active Toreros have so many options when it comes to having fun! You can join an intramural sports team, a try out for a sports club, or take fitness classes and programs. There’s always a ton to do at the Sports Center with the pool and recreation facilities. Watch for Campus Recreation’s Rec Raids, which can happen at any time, at any place!

Torero Weekends

There’s plenty to do during your down time after classes and studying! Stop by Frank’s Lounge (Hahn UC 279) to play a game of pool with your friends, watch a movie outside on Plaza Mayor or grab a cup of coffee from Tú Mercado or Aromas. There are so many activities on campus and in San Diego!

"I enjoy living on campus! With so many fun things to do during the week and weekends; whether it be a Torero athletic event or an event put on by the Torero Program Board...my options are endless!" Ciano Ordinola
