What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a big school, but overall I like it and have enjoyed my time there. I was nervous at first because I came from a small, private school, but once I arrived at SDSU I got involved in some clubs and intra-mural sports. I made some friends and after that the school didn’t seem so large and daunting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego State University has a lot going for it; there's more clubs than I thought possible, and there is always something interesting/ exciting happening on campus. Like any school, they have some incredible professors that opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and inspired me to do something new with my life, and then other professors who taught so badly I actually did better on the tests skipping their classes and just teaching myself from the textbook. The campus is absolutely beautiful and they have a lot of great amenities. Sadly, the surrounding city area is not nice, and one might describe it as 'pretty sketchy'. It is a commonplace to get school-wide alerts about muggings happening to people walking around alone at night. If you want to get to the nice areas of San Diego you have to drive about 15-20 minutes away from campus. The size of the school is probably one of the biggest drawbacks. Sometimes it's nice being anonymous, but for the most part it's not so rad. It wasn't really until my second semester that I started recognizing people I knew on campus daily. It's incredibly hard to get help from a school counselor and not many people seem to care about your success at the school. Although, if you are very self-motivated that shouldn't be a problem. The last thing I would like to say about SDSU is that it is incredibly greek life oriented. If joining a sorority/fraternity is something you want to do, than that's awesome, this school is perfect for you. However, if the idea of greek life makes you sick to your stomach than I warn you to turn away now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though the teachers aren't great sometimes, I would not choose anywhere else to go to school. Lively campus, great people, great environment. Yes people party but school comes first for everyone I know. As an engineering major I have some personal pros and cons I can give out. Pros: Great environment and community of fellow students. Classes are hard but if you are dedicated they are fun and interesting, studying in groups can make it more fun and easier to learn. Cons: Teachers are not great all the time, most have hard to understand accents but are good teachers, just ask questions if you don't understand something. Most work you will do is reteaching your self the material, this might be the fault of the teacher or it may just be unavoidable to really comprehend the intense material.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I find the school a little overrated. Too many people want to come to San Diego even though there really isn't much to see here. The nearby stores amd food around the campus is a fair distance. Although, the nursing program is great here and so is the environment as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a nice university. The campus is very clean and nice, there are a lot of resources available to students. However, as an out of state student, I am required to live on campus for two years, and am required to pay for a meal plan the first year. I wish students were given more choices.

San Diego State is such a beautiful and welcoming university, and I can not wait to start my higher-level education here in the fall. It seems to have it all from great academics, to great sport teams, and a wide range of great extracurricular activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the atmosphere of the campus the weather is always really nice and people are usually walking around at all hours. The campus is very open, yet holds an atmosphere of safety as there are usually many students out and about. There are many people from diverse backgrounds, and ideas fly like crazy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SDSU is a campus in flux. Long known as the jock-bro nexus of the lower Southern California and a destination for East Coast rich kids who couldn't get into their Ivy Leagues on legacy alone, the campus has considerably grown its STEM departments in both size and prestige to the point where it competes with its state university cousin, UCSD in research. It's now one of the first schools in the country to offer experimental new degrees like Interdisciplinary Studies and Rhetoric & Writing Studies that are being adopted nationwide, and will be that much more ahead because of it. The politically aware climate on campus is on the upswing as well, with more and more students becoming politically active.
