USD NAMED MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS IN THE NATION
“BEAUTY, GOODNESS AND TRUTH” is at the heart of the famous quote from University of San Diego co-founder Mother Rosalie Clifton Hill, RSCJ. The superior vicar of the Society of the Sacred Heart said in 1949 that there are three things that are significant in education: “Beauty will attract them; goodness will lead them; but the truth will hold them.” For Mother Hill, the search for truth was the purpose of the university. In August 2017, the esteemed Princeton Review named USD as “the most beautiful campus in the nation” in their 2018 edition of The Best 382 Colleges. Additionally, USD is one of only 24 universities in the country to earn a perfect score on The Princeton Review’s Green Rating, placing the university on the prestigious Green Honor Roll.
