I visited the university print room to have a look at their old master prints. I was happily surprised by the fabulous surroundings at this university campus. Extremely well kept buildings and lawns make this site alone worthwhile for a visit.

Nestled atop a mountain, the USD campus and its surrounding views of San Diego are breathtaking! Although they're undergoing some construction at the center of the campus, its very well kept despite the construction. Nice walks between buildings. Beautiful campus that I enjoy visiting.

I attended a reception at the Peace and Justice Theater, I think. It was a beautiful setting and we had a short tour through the building itself.

The University of San Diego has a beautiful campus. Compact, easy to get around. Buildings are almost in the style of old missions. Lots of green space. Central area is currently being landscaped and should be very nice very soon.
