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.

    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.

  • Oct-19-2014 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    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.

    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.
