What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University is a great school for journalism students worldwide. The program is intense, and a lot of students don't make it and switch majors. Those of us who complete the program have all of the tools needed to go into the industry. Campus life is active and open to all ideas and passions. There are sports teams, but they don't generate much buzz on campus.

I have enjoyed my time and recommend the school. Go to your teachers' office hours and do the readings. I have noticed that in all of my classes, both my major classes and upper division GE's, attendance is important to the teachers. The experience will be what you make of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State is truly place where you find yourself and allows you to explore different cultures and people. The people here are not afraid to be themselves and know when to fight for what is right. Not only is the camps very liberal and open minded, but the city is as well and has a very united front. The professors at SF State, for the most part are always available and willing to help out their students with their path to their careers. There are also many events the campus has, although I do wish they would broadcast them a bit more so everyone know about them. All in all I do not regret choosing this school to attend and I truly considerate it my home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University (SFSU, also known as "State") hosts an extremely diverse student body that is dynamic and motivated to learn. There are many amazing professors who are approachable, intelligent, and supportive of your academic and personal journey. It is important to note that SFSU does not provide an insulated community on campus and, depending on your perspective, this is either an advantage or a downside. The biggest asset of SFSU is its location in the San Francisco Bay Area, a hub of innovation and industry, and the university blends into the surrounding urban area. You will not experience the same container as you would in a smaller college town. There are great pockets of community if you seek them out. San Francisco State University is an excellent place to become politicized. San Francisco is a wildly social justice-oriented place, and SFSU is home to the first college of Ethnic Studies in the nation. If you attend SFSU, I highly recommend taking at least one Ethnic Studies class. SFSU is all about finding your niche. On a campus this diverse, seek out your interests and you will find like minded people. It will be your responsibility to find your community but at this campus, the world is your oyster. Enjoy!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to San Francisco State University has made a more independent student, I have grown and learned a lot. The teachers are one of the greatest people, they genuinely make sure you understand the concept and want you to pass. The overall environment of the school is phenomenal, you are able to make friends where you can focus together with school and still have fun on the weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University is a pretty good school. It definitely has one of the best Women and Gender Studies programs in the state if not the country. The program is very focused on transnational feminism, which is awesome. The school more generally could be more interesting, more progressive, more accessible, etc. but those things could be said about any school. For the amount of funding it has, I think SFSU is doing pretty well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University is extremely diverse. There are a bunch of sweet conversational people around. As a psychology major and a communicative disorders major, many class are only offer at night which is sometimes inconvenient . But overall, its a good campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love San Francisco. The dorms aren't very nice, the bathrooms and amenities are dirty and old, and the buildings could use maintenance. SFSU is an old university and it is so hard to get the classes you need because there are so many students and not enough classes. That is why it takes 5-6 years to graduate. There is not much greek life and the students are not really active and seem quite socially awkward. I am ready to graduate and I am only a 3rd year and I am anticipated to graduate in 2019 rather than 2018.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. If you make friends you are bound to have fun. There are more then enough people for you take some. There is always something to do, being in the city. They have name clubs and the occasional on campus concerts. The people are nice and open minded, no one cares what you wear ow what weird things you might do, they accept you.
