What Students Are Saying

3.48 Average Rating
You can tell that (most) teachers really care about their students, and have been doing their best to be there despite all of the drastic budget cuts. It has impacted the availability of services, which is disappointing; but you can see where the faculty and staff put out the extra effort in still making resources available and allowing the students to be informed. It is a great campus to be politically active or to be in a club and participate in community activities.

SFSU is a smaller school, yet there is a lot to do because it is located in the great city, San Francisco. There is so much to explore in the city that you will never be bored, such as festivals, concerts, and different events. Living here you'll have the city and beach near by so its the best of both worlds.
