San Francisco State University Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Rachel

I like to brag about the fact that SFSU is in one of the most vibrant, exciting cities in the world. There is always something exciting to do like a city-wide pillow fight or music festivals. I am able to soak up the different cultures that have shaped the city. If I'm ever bored, I can just step out into the city and experience something new.

Shawn

The well informed professors and great students.

Sarah

I don't, I try to avoid telling people where I go to school.

Johnson

There is a lot of diversity on campus and there are a variety of clubs and organization that can practically fit any one persons. A lot of the students are friendly as everyone is trying to build their network in college. The professors are always willing to help a prospective student and they are well-educated in the field they are teaching. There is different cultures of food and they all taste fantastic. The food is also inexpensive and affordable for a college student on a budget.

Helen

The wide selection of science classes.

alyssa

Very green campus, lots of pretty foliage throughout the campus. The campus itself is extremely diverse, you hear all sorts of languages being spoken as you walk through. Everyone I've come into contact with, including professors, have been extremely friendly and helpful.

Tyler

I come from a small town in Iowa. It is very boring there. Therefore, the main thing I brag about when telling my friends about my school is that it is in the fantastically foggy city of San Francisco! There is always fun things to do like wandering the city to going out with friends. Sure it is not always sunny and warm, but I love it for what it is.

Hanna

The amazing professors, perhaps it's just my good luck, but all the professers I've had are not only engaging, but unique interesting people who are funny to boot. The familiarity they can bring between students even in classes that look like auditoriums mixed with the general friendliness of all the other students is what I love most about SFSU. Also- in a city that's so grey we have an incredibly green campus; there are trees and plants everywhere!

Justin

The quality of education is amazing. The classes are very challenging, but do-able. All of my teachers were knowledgable and most were passionate about the subjects they teach. I was always welcomed during office hours and my questions answered. My professors were happy I came to visit them; I never felt like I was bothering them. Other than that, I felt the textbook prices were reasonable. Sometimes teachers have a workbook for less than 10 dollars. On top of that, the bookstore offers a textbook rental program where you can return the books at the end of the semester.

Joy

I brag about its diversity and its easy-going environment.

Brandy

I usually tell people that I have the most beautiful school. It's really nice to be there because of all of the plants, flowers, trees, buildings, ect. It's the best thing about my school which makes me really proud to be a part of it.

Stefeny

When I tell friends about my school I mostly brag about the transportation. The transportation is very convenient for students--especially for those without cars-- to get around San Francisco. It gives students the chance to explore the city at a very low price. I also brag about the location of the school. Close by is a mall, bookstore, grocery store, and other places that a student would find helpful while attending college.

Amarachi

The best thing about SF State is the location, San Francisco is in the heart of Northern California. One of the most vibrant and popular cities in the world, a range of ideas, opinions and resources converge at San Francisco State University to offer students unparralled oppurtunities for learning, exploration, creativity and discovery. I love the diversity that I'm surrounded by on campus. I come from a small upper-middle class town in the suburbs where the majority of its residence are caucasion so it was a breath of fresh air to see a variety of different races.

Kayla

My school is in a nice setting, next to the city of San Francisco. There are a lot of fun things to do in the city. My school has a variety of food and is sensitive to all kinds of eating preferences. Throughout the campus there is not one trash can that doesn't have recycling bins next to them. The campus has computer labs in almost every building for students to use. There is a building where commuting information is available and bus passes can be purchased. There's a free shuttle from Bart to the campus.

Honestly, I tend to brag about the cost of living the most. I love to watch my friends back in Illinois react what I tell them that I pay $500 a month to rent out part of a living room or that I have 6 roommates. Their looks of utter shock are priceless.
