    This is not like high school. You are afforded considerable freedom -- how you utilise that is up to you. You'll realise fairly quickly that a day of classes can vary widely -- some classes with over a hundred students and another with just ten. It's rewarding, and quite useful, to establish even a few friendships to allow for emotional and academic support.

    I definitely recommend prospective students to visit the campus a couple of times before the academic session starts just to get a feel for the campus because the campus is pretty big. Another good idea for prospective students would be to get involved with on-campus activities. There are various activities going on each day at SFSU and you will have a great time participating in them.
