I have enjoyed all but one teacher in my first year here at SF State. My teachers are committed to giving me the best education they can and that's a lot to ask for from a state school.

    A public urban university, located in the heart of SANFRAN. The campus itself is filled with greenery and isn't the best place if you are looking for hot weather; however, if you do like the cold, it is the best place to be.

    This is a very multicultural/multi-ethnic school. The campus is beautifully modern, with lots of wild life, and it is also pet-friendly. Most students and staff members are always kind and sociable.

    San Francisco has its pros and cons as a university. The thing I appreciated the most about SFSU was the professors, who were the most supportive and intelligent people I have ever met. The downside is that the college is a commuter campus, and so it can be difficult to foster a sense of community during your time there as a student.
