What is your overall opinion of this school?

My over all opinion of SFSU is that to experience college life, you have to put yourself out there. SFSU is a commuter school where most of the individuals are there to get what they need done, then leave. Though, when you take the time to enjoy and explore SFSU is welcoming. The diverse staff and students make it feel like a second home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When you first visit campus your excited to be a gator and gain college knowledge. The fact this school has so many amenities it'll distract you from the real issues this school has when you actually become fully admitted student. Even though san francisco is known to be expensive area this school can become way expensive over time. Don't do on campus housing its the worse thing about this school. I stayed in the tower village centinneal square from fall to spring even on winter break and it was thr worst mistake to join this school and live on campus. First of all when me and my roomates first moved in our dorm room had a big ant problem then that went away . Then later down the line we had fleas coming out the sink drain, we caught 3 mice on mice traps because this school is infested with mice and rats ! You can see raccons and rats running in the bushes and acroos school campus at night. The food places where it accepts your meal plan, you see a family of mice walking across the sidewalks by food area. The school doesn't properly inform you that on winter break maintenance will not be working. So you end up seeing the trash bins down the hall over flowing onto the ground for a months worth of trash not being taken out. If anything is wrong with your dorm room during that winter break you just have to wait to get it fixed until maintenance is back to work after winter break. Not only did this dorm room had insect and mice problem the heater was broken and there was black mold growing on the wall. If you complain to housing about your dorm problems all there going to tell you is that they can't help you . To pay over 14 thousand a semester for on campus dorm with alot of problems isnt worth it and unfair to not be informed before moving in of the housing problems . Not to mention the hot water was out for a whole week in two dorm buildings because a piece broke in the boiler room. Taking cold showers for a week is not pleasant so is not being properly informed on what class #s to add when you choose a math and english class . As far as education wise I believe the math department forcing people who are in a certain category to take two math classes is unnessary especially when the second class doesn't apply to anything u learning i the other math class. Overall I can say the school landscaspe, convient stores, and other amenties makes this place look great but they have issues threy need to fix about this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SFSU was exactly the school I was looking for when I graduated high school. I did not want a school with a focus on sports or Greek life. I was able to explore the wonderful city of San Francisco and all it has to offer, as well as receive an amazing education. By attending SFSU I found out who I truly was and made life long friends along the way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, it is a pretty nice and open school. I met a couple nice people in my classes. There aren't too many things to do, but there is a mall the next block over from the school to shop and buy food. Other than social life, which is kind of dull, academic wise it is okay. I learned quite a lot already and I'm making the most out of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are the type of person who likes cool weathers and not really into sports, then this is the place for you. I love the diversity here and how people are very sociable around here. But on weekends, you should expect everyone going home since it does get quiet around here. Also, I want to appreciate the school for its education. As much as I have experienced in my first year, there are most teachers here who actually try to help their students succeed. Those teachers make the courses fun that makes students want to actually go to class everyday. There are a few teachers who don't try much which makes you have to discipline yourself to self-study. There are a few party scenes at the dorms and off-campus. However, if partying in the dorms, it is a bit risky since the RAs (Resident Assistance) walk around the halls if you're music is on blast. My experience here has been really eye-opening and breath-taking as a freshman. It makes me reflect on myself and await for the near future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school with an excellent learning and proactive community. It is very ethnically diverse. San Francisco Stat University encourages participation in various activities such as Greek. It is also very accepting of various sexualities and religions. I like Sf state because encourages individuality.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University is a wonderful school. It's rather small and easy to get from class to class. Even though the campus is small, there are thousands of students. What I love about the people is that there is so much diversity. You learn something new every single day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly feel like San Francisco State University has a good learning environment. I like how everyone is involved in the school and how no one is left out. It's like a big family that is with you and supports you, always. I also love the location it's near all the nice places I like to visit. I would like to go and be part of the SFSU environment and be a student there. I feel like I'll really get to know who I am in reality and what I really want to major in. I have always had the hope to go back to the city. I recently live 40 minutes away and now that I'll be graduating next year, I would like to apply to San Francisco State and get as many financial aid to make my college experience unforgettable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! I transferred from a community college. It feels great to actually be on a campus that feels professional. In my Mechanical Engineering program, you are required to see a counselor to make sure your on track. That is great because i had wasted semesters at my community college, because it was hard to pick the right track. Overall LOVE IT.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe San Francisco State University is a wonderful school for students who are willing to put in work for their experience. Unfortunately, we are a commuter school which makes making friends outside of class difficult. There are a number of clubs, organizations, and events put on by the school that most people don't take advantage of, but I highly recommend using the resources given by the school. Academically, I've never experienced any other college so I only know SFSU. The professors are generally very helpful, at least in the film department. I've only had to crashes classes a couple times in my four years, and I'm graduating "on-time." There are many people I know that find getting into classes difficult and a handful of people who graduate in more than four years. Despite the delay in graduation, I think every college struggles with that problem and SFSU should not be ridiculed for it. San Francisco State University is a great school that brought me out of my comfort zone socially, academically, and culturally. I'm glad I chose SFSU as my college!
