Review San Diego State University
I love SDSU! I live on campus at the SVO House on Fraternity Row. It's really nice living with fellow veterans. They just get you. I love having the ARC near me so I can work out without driving anywhere. All of my teachers last semester were super nice and very qualified. Some of them were very effective in their methods and I'll never forget them. I already love my professors this semester. Everyone wants you to succeed. If you want to, you will. We have our own police department. They keep us informed on potential threats and their work to neutralize them. There's always a party going on. Student government makes sure there are activities throughout each semester. The basketball and football games are off the hook. Most of the dorms are pretty great, but they tend to be a bit pricey. But hey, what school has cheap dorms? There’s plenty of food choices on campus. And being that our campus is in San Diego, we have one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation!
I love that San Diego State University has a lot of diversity, professional and highly recommended professors, and great school pride! This school is also one of the best for research and innovative thinking. There are many ways to get involved and most of the professors here have PhD's in their field! I love the weather and environment, and I wouldn't have chosen a different school. The only downside is the tuition continues to increase (about a thousand since last year), but if you take advantage of all the things that the tuition pays for, it is somewhat worth it!
I have had an amazing experience with SDSU. From the quality of my education in my major, to the availability of faculty for support, and for the wide array of programs and research labs to be a part of! It really has been a unique experience. The GE experience is not always the best at SDSU as most of the professors modified their curriculum to their students, who most were just there because they were forced to, which brought down the class. I would love to see an improvement overall in that area to bring UP those individuals instead of bringing down those invested.
