What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State is a wonderful school due to the staff and facility members because they're quite friendly and always accessible. I'd say it's a commuter school, so it might be a little hard to create friends; only time would be if you join clubs or organizations or during class time. We have a little piece of culture in our cafeteria from Indian to Mexican food, that's the best part! I'd say it needs more school spirit though!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Francisco State University is a good school from what I observed when I visited there. They have a lot of shops and little food places which I enjoyed. Another thing they have is a health and wellness center which is important for students in order to relieve their stress. Lastly, they have many different majors to choose from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At San Francisco State University its not like any other typical state university, where you just got to school for another 4 years and party at times. The experience at this University is unique because its in San Francisco ans since its S.F. you always have somehere to go after you class/ clasess have finished there wont be one day where you will get bored since S.F. just has so much to offer from the diversity in the food and the areas such as Japan Town and the Mission area. S.F. has one of the most diverce cities that youll alwasys meet new people from different areas around the world. Its a good school with a variety of strong departments, its a great school and highley recommend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like San Francisco State. It's easy to get there, plus there are many activities to do around sf state. Like the lake, Stonestown Mall, etc. I have been a visitor there for so long, since my freshman year and hopefully I get to be a student attending San Francisco State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There's a lot to love about SF State. It's located in a vibrant and diverse city with plenty to do outside of school, tuition is relatively cheap, etc. However, it's not without its compromises. Living in or near the city can be pretty expensive, there's not really much to do on campus because most students are commuters, and the sports culture is pretty much non-existent. Despite that, SF State is still a good choice for people who just want to get their degree and get out. It's nothing special, but it will get the job done, assuming you're not in an impacted major. Good luck getting your classes if you are.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the campus immensely! There is a ton of classes to choose from and the campus is beautiful with all the nature spots. There are frequent busses running to the campus from bart making it very convenient for people who commute like me. Overall , my time there has proved informative and ethereal:)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Students encourage each other to move forward and come together as one to show everyone that we stand with one another. No one is left behind, the school is very accepting of others. It’s always amazing to meet new people from all over the world and see why people choose to come to SFSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my time as a student at San Francisco State University. This is a very diverse campus. It is relatively small, but it is filled with big thinkers. The professors are caring and the advisors for academics and financial aid are easily accessible to all students. They also recently updated their gym facilities, and they provide many health services for their students. Their a large community right beside the campus that caters to the housing needs of students, so that they can be close to school without having to live in the dorms. There is an extensive transportation system in San Francisco that allows students to easily commute from all parts of the Bay Area. This is a great campus for people, who are interested in the arts and humanities!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that it is a great school, it is very nice and safe there. It has a great amount of things going on while I visited the school to be able to get an idea of how campus life will be like if I was to attend there. I’m glad that I went to visit and see how it was, I really liked the school and knew it was going to be a great fit for me and I’m glad that I committed to that school and will be attending to go there in the fall semester of 2018.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had a really good experience at SFSU. As a transfer student from a CC that wasn't able to afford a private university or UC, San Francisco State was a great fit. I was pleasantly surprised to find very friendly students and helpful professors. The school has a reputation for being a commuter school - many students do commute to the campus and there isn't as much on-campus activity as there are at some other schools. But it's not like you really need it or miss it - San Francisco, Oakland and the greater Bay Area are RIGHT THERE! As with any situation, what you invest and how you approach people will create your experience. I loved my time there!
