San Francisco State University is a public research institution and member of the California State University System. The most popular fields of study for undergraduates at SFSU are business administration, biology, and kinesiology. More than half of the student population identifies as either Asian or Hispanic making for a diverse campus. SFSU houses the Institute for Civic and Community Engagement, a place for students to give back to the Bay Area communities.
After completing VERY thorough research and outreach to the university I feel its diversity makes it a great school for students of all social and cultural backgrounds. On the other hand, it is located in a major city, so if the city environment isn't for you than this may not be your school. A big city also has many benefits, tons of social connections and great opportunities to obtain a leading edge in the work force upon graduation.

San Francisco State University has been a great school so far. I just finished my first year and I had the best time of my academic career. The other students at SFSU are extremely friendly and the sense of happiness that the atmosphere and campus greenery of the campus gives me is a feeling I won't ever forget.
