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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus, the education, and the vibe. A lot of us are aware of the situations of the country and we do what we can to help make change. SFSU was what began that spark in me. I love it, the only thing I would change would be to incorporate more professors and add more classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are some great professors and like any institution there are some horrible professors. advising can be a hard task here as well. getting mixed information seems to be a trend. capping classes when super seniors are waiting to take classes they need... ridiculious

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, I love it everyone is so friendly and building community is really easy. Teachers are always available to help and will reach out to you if you're struggling. Living on campus and attending class has taught me the importance of taking education by the hand and prioritizing your time efficiently .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and breath taking, and the students who attend are known for their passion. It’s amazing how the community in and out of the university is so involved and always searching for the better of their own lives and society’s. I feel as if the alumni of SFSU are the trailblazers of modern day society from the news given through their student portals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be attending SFSU in the fall but from what I have from current students, SFSU is a great school academics-wise and is big on getting involved in extracurricular activities. The off-campus life can be a bit challenging since the cost of living is a very high demand, but you get your bang for your buck so to speak.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like the environment and the academic life at San Francisco State University, although I had problems when it came to enrolling into courses. I wasn’t able to enroll into Pre-Calculus my first year due to my low ELM scores, for my counselor slightly aided me but couldn’t do much. I enjoyed most of the courses I took during my freshmen year, most of my teachers tried to add their own flavor to grab the students attention. Though some were successful in trying this, some were not. This happened in a class I took, where the teacher failed to enlighten his students and many dropped out for that reason. I wish my school was more my spirited, for my school is a commuter school, so a lot of student leave after they finish their classes; so there is no real connection between the school and students. Most of the school’s events are hardly advertised, so a small amount of students would attend them. I was in that small amount, for my residential advisor was extremely spirited and notified everyone she knew about these upcoming events. Another issue I have is that my school charges the students a lot for housing, tuition, food, etc., but do not use that money to repair or remodel the buildings in the campus. I have seen a lot of buildings that still need serious repair or remodeling. I overall enjoy being a student at SFSU, I learned a lot my two years here. I was able to find a well-paying job all on my own, I had really good grades, and I befriended a lot of people. Plus the school is super clean, and are trying digitize all text books for easy access. I am looking forward to my junior year of college and the things to comes.
