What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will always have a special place in my heart for San Diego State University, which provided an amazing college experience. I attended San Diego State University from 2006 - 2010, which are four years I will never forget. In terms of academics, the professors were amazing. When people think of Physics, they often think of UC San Diego, not San Diego State University (SDSU.) However, SDSU has some benefits over UCSD. One main benefit was class size. My entire graduating class was nine people. This meant that I knew all of my professors and they had the time to really invest in each student. The professors went above and beyond to be available to their students, and I even had several of their cell phone numbers. In terms of amenities, SDSU boast a state of the art gym, outdoor aquatic center with beach front entry pool, and an arena and open air theater where concerts are frequently held. Since I graduated, I know the student union center was remodeled to offer more resources and amenities to students. The meal plans offer several dining options, for those worried about getting a good meal. There is one main dining hall, which serves buffet style food with a rotating menu. There are also grills and markets throughout campus where students can get prepackage food or items like hamburgers. Additionally, there are restaurants such as Jamba Juice, Taco Bell, etc. You won't go hungry! In terms of a social life, there is something for everyone. There are several Greek houses, if that is something you are interested in. There are also hundreds of different clubs that students can join, including intramural sports, and clubs based on personal interest. I know the party scene is something that students and parents worry about when attending college. If we are honest, it is a college campus, so there are parties and alcohol available. There are also students who choose not to participate in those activities, which is also totally OK. I personally was one of those students who chose not to drink or participate in Greek life and I never felt pressured or ridiculed for my decision. I always felt I was supported and accepted for who and what I wanted to be. Finally, and I know this is cliche, but I met some of my best, life-long friends while attending SDSU. These people are still some of my most dear friends and, even though we don't live with each other anymore, we have been by each other's side as we have gotten married, had children, started new careers, etc. I am so glad that I chose SDSU as my college and would make the decision again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego State is a very welcoming school that allows for many opportunities for each individual. At this school, there are plenty of people that can make you feel comfortable on campus. Coming into San Diego State as first year from out of state, I was nervous about being so away from home but since coming here it has become my home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wish there was more inclusivity especially some programs or services for commuter students, but other than it is great in academics, most professors take time to assist their students, and there are many organizations and clubs for people to join. The parking permits are a bit high so I wish they made it more affordable and perhaps more parking structures for commuter students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like it. The atmosphere is outgoing and interactive. Students are nice and helpful with one another and if you don't know someone, it doesn't take much to get to know them. The classes and teachers and extreme good in my experience. The housing part is a little frustrating but what is one to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have made the right choice by picking sdsu as my college. There has not been a day that passes that I am unhappy. This well-rounded school provides me with various things to do. This college provided me with so many opportunities that I plan on taking advantage of! The professors are always here to help you as well. Overall, San Diego State University is the college for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that even though there is many amazing aspects, some of the culture is often downsized and hidden within the community. There are many events that take place for culture but it take a lot of solving to figure out where it is. The academics are amazing though as many professors want to to thrive and succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an amazing school in all aspects. The academics have a great variety. You could take a class on surfing if you wanted too. The social aspect is amazing, because in college, no one judges. The food is good, because we have a variety of places on campus that accept meal plan such as Panda Express, Subway, Rubio's, and much more. Most of the dorms are really nice, because a few we just built last year. Also, with classes, it's a good balance, because there's some classes with hundreds of students and then there's other classes with about 20. Overall, I love SDSU and I can't wait to spend the next few years of my life here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great environment for one to receive an education and further themselves in life to succeed. This is a fun yet great learning school with many opportunities for students enrolling. When i first came to visit this school I was surprised by the whole architecture and friendly environment of the school. Im a high school senior and since first visiting SDSU i fell in love and will be coming back once again for my third time to watch SDSU vs BYU football game. GO AZTECS!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, it's a school I very much enjoy attending. I've been here for 5 semesters, and have had a great experiences in and out of class. I have to say that recently there have been some security problems on campus, but the school police department always notifies the students.
