I usually take my lunch. But it is very nice to have access when I need it.

There are no Greek Fraternities and Sororities here. Strictly a professional and graduate school.

As expensive as this university is, you would think they would offer a much larger selection of scholarships, but they don't. They do offer a $3,000 a year scholarship to first time students, which is piss in the wind relative to the total cost and fees.

This is downtown San Francisco, so you are going to be bombarded with a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, and bars. You won't have a problem finding ethnic food either, seeing that San Francisco is not hip on endless supplies of fast-food chains.

The computer lab is small and the computers are slow.

There are students from all over the world with a wide religious and spiritual backgrounds.

This school has some of the most integral and transdisciplinary programs in the bay area. If someone is interested in how multiple disciplines intersect, or wants to learn from a holistic and consciousness transforming standpoint, this is the school.

My major is the most academic in the school but in some ways lacks focus.
College Senior 2013-04-28T00:11:24Z
The curriculum is cutting edge. My only critique is that sometimes professors are not specific or rigorous enough. One of a kind education though.

I do not see any drug use. This is a graduate and professional school so the student body is rather mature.

Chilly. But hey, it beats the snow in the midwest.

Hello ! San Francisco has darling homes and apartments but this city is prohibitively expensive for most people. Most of your income goes to rent in this town....then to food.
The city is spectacular but it is fast paced and expensive.
Lots of beauty all around and lots of free things to do for leisure

We are not graded. Instead we receive evaluations and reviews.
We are made responsible for our own learning and have to create service learning projects, creative projects, and maintain high academic standards of thinking. This is a school for learning about learning and for learning how to think critically. This school is for great thinkers , visionaries, and community leaders.

Professors are amazing!
The cohort learning model is intimate and accessible
Non-traditional pedagogy makes the material relevant to our lives
Integral learning is about integrating inner / outer ways of knowing
The material is intellectually and academically rigorous
We are expected to cultivate community, and convert theory into social justice pursuits (e.g. take what is learned and parlay the teaching into social action to contribute to our communities).

lots of healthy foods. I'm on a specialized paleo diet, thus there are not a lot of options for me personally. good coffee and socially responsible food choices and packaging.

There is an open door policy with most faculty and administration. All of my proffs are always happy to engage with me and to welcome students into their offices. The turnaround time for finaid info and curriculum related matters is really fast. The environment is nurturing and supportive and the pedagogy is cutting edge. The environment on campus is calm and there are spacious and adequate lounge and lab areas for students. The only drawback so far is lack of institutional scholarships or programs to help pay for this pricey education.

I don't drive but I hear the parking is difficult because it is in a busy part of the city.

I am in the ICP program at CIIS. One great thing about many of the classes is that they are student centered. I really feel like they care about the students and if you are getting the material. There's a lot of reading to do and the in class time is more experiential than lecture. CIIS teaches transpersonal psychology so if you get that we are not bodies with mind but are body/mind/spiritual beings then this will be a great place for you!
Be prepared in this program to dig deep inside yourself and do the work on yourself.
College Senior 2013-02-11T04:12:50Z
The programs at CIIS are geared toward actual learning. This means to say that they really want you to learn the material rather than doing what you need to do to get the grade like so many other programs I have been in in my undergraduate and K to 12.
The professors I have had are considered experts in their field. They really care about their students and the development of community at CIIS. If you want to learn about your area of interest while learning more about yourself and how you can be in the world, this is the place for you!

CIIS is a very integral and diverse place of education and modeling of inclusive/respectful beliefs.

Parking in the city of SF can be demanding. Best to use public transportation.

The program I am in lost its accreditation with APA, but it is overall fairly good.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
