San Francisco State exposed me to such a wide diverse group of people and passionate professors/faculty that inspired me to work as hard as I did during my undergrad years. That's exactly why I am applying to this same school for my master's in social work! The campus, though not as big as other schools, is beautiful with green scenery and so many opportunities for social activities in organizations as well.
San Francisco State is a great school overall that cares about the students and their success. This school pays very much attention to the social civil rights and many of my instructors are true advocates for safety, equity and opportunities for all. They set a wonderful example of inclusivity and support, especially for those in need.
I think it's a decent school, to be honest, but it's what you make of it. If you do want to break out of your shell you have to go look for opportunities to be social. Join a club, join a sport, join a fraternity or sorority. The food is decent. The area around has a lot of options since there's a mall literally next to campus. There's a decent new gym. The living situation is alright expensive of course since it's San Francisco. Most of the teachers I've had do care about you and want to make sure you succeed you just need to ask for help when you need it.

try even harder to get in to a better school, or even get in to the same school again. but just try harder than now in order for more choices.
Very liberal open-minded campus, quite racially diverse.
People who are inteligent but have been given the short hand of the stick in regards to their educational oppertunities.
With the current budget cuts, classes have become more difficult to add. The professors cant help and neither can advisors. The problem lies with where the money from the government is being distributed (like to the remodeling of our perfectly already fine library) instead of hiring more educators.
SFSU is a great school filled with many wonderful people.
They are very versitile. You can become a social worker, be a bio major, study economics, it is all up to you.
One of the most popular student activities is the M.E.Ch.A club. They integrate our community in their activities and provide services. They also want students to gain awareness of upcoming protests and school related events.
The best thing about my school is the student body being so spirited and outgoing. There's always something going on, some campus or student event. There's always something to do.
SFSU is usually just dubbed as a commuter school where it is hard to meet people.
Wanna finish and make Lots $$$$$
1) Yes, SFSU's business courses are hard to get and is overfilled.
2) Some of SFSU's students are slackers, but there are also many great hard-working students as well.
I wish I had known more about the different art majors. At SFSU we have both a Broadcasting major and a Film major and I was not aware of the difference until I started going to the school, which meant I had to change my major my sophmore year. I also wish I would have known about life outside of campus more, although discovering things about the city on my own and with my friends has been quite a journey.
Having students from all over the world. We have many students that travel abroad to San Francisco State University.
Anybody who appreciates a school that is administered in a competent and efficient manner should not attend this school.
If you are planning to attend SF State, then make sure you bring a lot of jackets. It can get very cold here, especially when the fog comes in. With that aside, you should be a person who's open to meeting people from different countries. SF State has a lot of people from all over the world, but mainly with a huge Asian foreign student body. So if you want to know more about how life is, let's say in Japan, come to SF State and I guarantee you'll meet someone from Japan.
Free shuttle, a fun and laid back yet competitive school.
Generally it is not the school's fault, but with the California Budget Cuts, school is sometimes a difficult environment to have fun it. Many opprotunities that have been offered prior to the cuts are no longer available to the students. We pay more for less and it's very disheartening.
Students are typically laid back/chill. Most students do what they have to do to get by in their classes, not necessarily high in academics. Due to the budget cuts to the state university, teachers care less about their students, which in turn lowers the student morale and gives this negative academic energy.
The Vista Room is a fine dining restaurant in on the fourth floor of one of the dorm buildings at San Francisco State Un
Dorms here are small, old, and outdated from what I've seen.
