What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I feel that my school has given me a great amount of knowledge within my first two years here. I am very happy with my choice and I am excited for the next two years to come. I have taken a wide variety of classes in my opinion and I have had good experiences in ALL. Yes, some classes are hard and bring stress but I feel that if you are not being challenged then you are not bringing your full education to the potential that it can be. This school challenges you and even offers you to exceed the challenges they place in regular classes, with their Honor classes. Now I have not taken these Honor classes yet but many of my advisors have offered me the choices which I greatly appreciate. Additionally, the teachers here are pretty amazing. They always make sure their students are understanding and keeping up with the work. They make sure to be available as much as possible via email as well as offering office hours throughout the week. I find that many teachers take this a step further as some of their office hours don’t work for all, so they make the time to see their students when they are available if reached out to. Many SDSU teachers are very encouraging as well as very kind, and it is shown that they only want all their students to succeed. I highly recommend anyone who is an incoming freshman to give SDSU a chance, you won’t be disappointed with what this school offers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Greek life is everything in San Diego State. If your not apart of it, especially as a male, you are seen as a loser. Everyone is a business major, because it is the easiest major to study while partying every week. Everyone is decently smart, but the majority have zero priorities here, and rather party than study. Probably the best way I can represent the people at SDSU is when one of my dorm mates told me, "yea I'm studying business management so I can MANAGE people". These are people who have zero knowledge of the outside world, and their goals of becoming successful are sadly delusional. But don't get me wrong, the people here are very nice. They don't judge you for your past or if you do drugs, they judge you based on your personality. However, it is often hard to talk about goals and the future with these people since they have never thought about it. They want to push these thoughts of employment, money, and success until the very last minute, when they are juniors or seniors with bad grades and bad job resumes. If you want to surround yourself around hard workers who push you academically, this school definitely isn't for you. However, if you want to enjoy the college life and experience probably the best four years of your life, then this school is for you. Or, if you want to focus on yourself but have friends who are goofy and fun to be around, then this school is for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SDSU is a beautiful place; Greek life thrives, the diversity is ok, and the student leadership association is confusing but helpful and powerful. There is nothing you can't do at state, you just have to reach out for it yourself. With over 20,000 students and counting, there is not a group you won't be able to fit into, but it can be a tiny bit difficult to find friends if you don't get involved. Which leads me to say PLEASE GET INVOLVED. It makes such a big difference in your experience at state. Meet the people in Associated Students and learn how it works. Even if you don't like sports, you have the most fun at basketball games, occasionally at football games as well, but basketball is where it's at at state. However, the tailgates are the highlight of sports events at state, go and have fun :). When it comes to academics, the arts is not the shining gem of state, so it is recommended that if you pursue a degree in that category be careful dabbling in that major at state. I cannot say a lot for STEM because I am a journalism major, but talk to your teachers regardless, definitely crack down on a professor's office hours because they are very helpful. YOU HAVE TO TAKE MASTER RAPP'S COM CLASS, I cannot stress this enough, it is so wholesome. Get involved. Go to sports events. Talk to your teachers and utilize office hours. Last but not least, diversity at state is pretty high for a PWI, but it is still pretty divided. Do not be discouraged, you deserve to be there. Have fun :)

I love the campus geography. You can feel the coastal breezes walking on the campus. The atmosphere is great and the energy is just right. I feel empowered at San Diego State University and I expect to achieve greatness while working on my degree. I have found my new second home here at San Diego State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no regrets of choosing SDSU over other schools. It has quickly become my new home with all the wonderful friends that I've made after coming to SDSU and joining a fraternity. The vibe around campus is always very relaxing and the campus is beautiful. Academics is great as well because there seems to be a great number of resources for students to help us with our classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think its a pretty good school in which i would spend the rest of my college experience, Food sold in campus is fordable and healthy , some of it is even farmed at the school which i find great. In addition to the food the campus has always something going on, for example on Thursdays wee have a food market that sells foods from many cultures in addition to other types of shops that give free fruit and other basic need to students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego State University is a fantastic college. Not only do I learn all about how to be successful in my field of study when I work professionally, but they actually provide opportunities to work professionally. Because of SDSU, I have worked on one of the biggest movies of the next decade and I can't thank SDSU enough for it. The teachers in particular are always so willing to help and have helped me get my foot into the door.

San Diego State was my dream school and I am so honored to have been able to transfer here after community college. SDSU's journalism program is absolutely phenomenal. I love sports and SDSU takes great pride in our teams. We have so many incredible athlete alumni to be proud of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am not a student, but I want to be. The school is beautiful, and in a great location: my home town of San Diego. My favorite part of SDSU is how accessible it is to get place to place without a car, and that I can get credits from Stand Up Paddle Boarding. I love the campus, and that it is a big community in itself.
