Find Your People

The Coyote community is full of people excited to celebrate their passions together. When you become a Yote, you will get the chance to connect with people within your major, try new things through clubs and other student organizations. USD is a place where lifelong friendships are made and we can not wait for you to get here. 


One of my favorite memories at USD is joining the student organization Campus Activities Board. CAB has provided so many experiences and introduced me to students, faculty, and friends who inspire me to be a leader that guides with a passion and a purpose.
