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.

    SFSU is a big commuter school. But to make friends join organizations and talk to your classmates. The school itself is a little unorganized with how it does things but it’s a great place to find yourself.

    Definitely a commuter school however it is not too hard to make friends on campus if you're open to joining organizations and socialize with your classmates. Campus is pretty small, but that makes it extremely beneficial for those that have a tight schedule because you'll never be late to class. Also the food options here are very nutritious, a little on the pricey side depending on what you are craving.

    It’s a commuter school so it can be difficult to make friends. It is not as bad as people say it is, it can be difficult to get the classes you need and will likely need to crash a course at least once in your college life, but it depends on your major. The teachers are great and knowledgeable.

    Student life is very fun, classes are easy to make friends in and the community is very welcoming. Professors can be great, but also terrible, ask around and pay attention to Ratemyprofessor. Not to mention having the city just one bus ride away.

    Most people who attend use BART rather than living on Campus. Frequent emails appear about the dangers of living in Park Merced and nearby campus due to vandalism and thefts. Campus is beautiful, people are nice, and expect cold weather always.

    Great and beautiful school to attend. Not only are you learning in a school in San Francisco, but SF State offers a lot of programs and opportunities that accommodates a wide range of people. Definitely recommend attending if you love the city and a beautiful learning environment.

    Went to visit the campus about two months ago must say it's beautiful.They have an amazing view of the city which is located in the Cesar chavez building I believe.It's also one of the best city to live in and the students and staff are very friendly.

    I came during the summer to visit this school with the program I'm in, USC Upward Bound, and I totally fell in love the campus. Friendly people are always greeting you, the campus was very nice and clean, and the classes were well maintained! Besides it is in San Francisco, what's there not to do in San Francisco!

    San Francisco State University is a great school for the arts. We have a good dance program here as well as many shows that highlight student and out of school dancers. The teaches also work with you.
