I don't think so, really. The school has a pretty good mix of people. There are more protests than school activities, though.
I think there are alot of liberal students who are active on the campus. I think there are many asian american students in the college of business since it is the most useful major.
In my eyes, this is somewhat accurate. The reason, I believe, is because this school is such a large commuter school. I feel that if many more people lived on campus there would be a greater emphasis on school pride and collectivism.
there is a good percentage of students on academic probation. but there is also a good percentage who excel and who work hard.
To some extent yes. It is hard to meet people, and when you mention that fact you people respond - because it's a commuter school.
There are many types of people
seems like it
No. I've been at this school for 4 years and have experienced first hand the quality of education, especially within the business department. The teachers are academic scholars, have real world experience in their field, as well as have a passion to teach.
Definitely not. We do have students that march to their own beat but by all means that adds character. The students which attend SFSU come from a diverse background, we have people from all walks of life.
I do not think so.
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.
These stereotypes are inaccurate. Not all students are very liberal; while I am sure that the student population in San Francisco may be considered more liberal than that of a population outside the Bay Area, we all hold our own views--some conservative and some liberal and some a mix of the two. The only caution, however, is to be more aware of the classes and their content before you sign up for any class that may deal with such political views if you are not completely open to / receptive of other views. For example, there is a Variations in Sexuality class that focused more on gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender studies than any other variation (such as straight!); this class is offered as a Segment 3 class in General Education. While it is not mandatory, it provides a good example of maintaining awareness of the topic and the environment/area in which it is being taught.
As for the stereotype of CSU students in general, there are many smart and talented students who attend CSUs strictly for financial reasons/constraints; many of these students could have easily been admitted to a UC school.
I think the bay area itself is liberal
I think we get this stereotype because some people end up in SFSU because they couldn't get into any UC
i dont know...at least i dont hear any gun shot or fighting on campus.
From my prospective, the collefe of business is a great aspect for SFSU. The students come from all background are very diverse in knowledge, culture and experiences.
Somewhat, I personally don't believe on the academic aspect. I attended Univeristy of California, Davis for almost 2 years, and I felt the professors here at SFSU are much more approachable and are very knowledgeable in their field of expertise.
Most of them are not.
I do live in SF... However, not all students do...
Not totally true since there are students that are struggling with classes. On top of that, I don't feel SFSU business program is that bad as some outsiders think.
somehow but it's not true for everyone
I don't really know of stereotypes for SFSU.
Yes, these stereotypes es are quite true. Since people come and go, its hard to meet people. And classes are hard to get.
No, I know many hard working and brilliant students at SFSU.
Not for everyone obviously, but we probably do have a disproportionate amount of liberals and vegans than the average university.
Half and Half. There are still a lot of students don't have to work and go to school full-time.
Not accurate. I have met people with low GPA and high GPA.
The students are diverse but that does offer a great experience
The foundations of the stereotypes are accurate.It is largely a commuter school though more people are staying closer to the campus now. There are so many people that it is hard to feel a sense of community but it is improving, even in the 3 years I have been enrolled. As a Jewish person there is a lot of controversy but I don't feel like I can't practice openly, the community never holds me back.
Every stereotype has a small grain of truth to it. In general, we are liberal, but all different types of people go to school here. Yes, even foreigners and homosexuals...
A lot of the time, sure.
Not really. SFSU has a lot of diverse ethnics and social groups. Some students are international or come from So Cal or different states which creates great variation of character and backround. Students probably party outside of school since San Francisco does have a great night life, but it shouldn't be a generalization. I'm sure there are party people somewhere at any school you find.
The demographics of SFSU are quite varied, so it's impossible to pigeonhole any group of people at SFSU, which rules out the 1st and 3rd stereotypes. The 2nd is true however, SFSU has a very culturally and ethnically diverse student body.
