    I grew up going to San Diego for anything and everything, so I am pretty familiar with SDSU. The area is fantastic. I have loved San Diego from the moment I set foot there, and it just one of those places that makes you feel good. SDSU, although, is not necessarily a shining light in San Diego. While it is a pretty decent school, it is notorious for it's snobby kids and party scene, and that is not for everyone. Personally, although, I loved SDSU. From my own experience, I met some great people and have gone to some really awesome events there. And the beach is basically down the street, so you can't go wrong there! If you go here, you'll fall in love without a doubt!

    The weather is absolutely spectacular here, almost 100% sunshine all year around. The professors I had were friendly and ready to help. The library is 4 stories high, providing an abundance amount of place to study.

    San Diego State University is a wonderful institution that promotes education to the highest degree. I have enjoyed my time there so far because it has truly prepared me for the rigorous obstacles of life.Not to mention the great teachers and courses they offer.

    As long as you are fully self-sufficient, it's a good school. There is little to no support for students in general, especially students with disabilities who had IEPs in high school. The Student Disability Services department is the worst I interviewed in the CSU system, and maybe it'll get better.

    SDSU is what you make, just like any other university. I transferred from a UC to SDSU, and it is the best decision I made. It is a diverse school which makes the environment much more welcoming.

    I would give San Diego State University an 8 out of 10. The campus is beautiful, the faculty is friendly, the students are cool and the leaders are motivated and caring. The area around the college is active and there's always something to do and I would give the school a 10 except for two reasons: it's not a UC school, and no school is a perfect 10 out of 10.

    San Diego State is an active lively place with high expectations. The campus is mostly greek oriented though which can be frustrating and exclusive at times. The campus have a lot of great teachers and good people.
