A Preview of Life as a Muscat Scholar

Community Service

One of the major features that program alumni consistently rate as most impactful is the community service component. Pandemic permitting, Scholars will be going to many venues in the City of San Francisco to partake in a community service activity to learn more about the City and discover the importance of service learning as a student at the University of San Francisco.

The City is Our Classroom

As much as MSP is an orientation to USF, it is also an orientation to San Francisco. We know that many students come to USF having never visited San Francisco before, so there are field trips as part of the program that help students get familiar with their new home and city.

Start Thinking about Jobs and Careers

The Career Services Center collaborates with MSP to provide feedback on resumes and guidance on preparing for the world of work through intentional planning through the four years of college. We are pleased to be able to offer MSP students with a job fair of departments from the University who are looking for applicants to staff their offices.

Networking and Resources

MSP Scholars will meet many staff, faculty, and administrators that make USF the amazing place that it is and have access to the many services that help students achieve their goals: Learning & Writing Center, Koret Student Health Center, the Gleeson Library, and many others await Scholars!

Access to Technology

In collaboration with Information Technology Services, MSP Scholars who meet financial aid guidelines will be eligible to apply for a refurbished Mac or PC laptop. This program is strictly need-based with a limited supply of computers available for donation, at no cost to the student.
