This University is the best CSU in the Bay Area! The academia that this institution offers it's students is challenging and prepares them for honest careers in their intended fields. The professors care a great deal about this and will connect students with the right networks for their fields of interest. Mostly a commuter school, but the dorm life is welcoming, safe, and fun. Students are heard and respected at S.F. State. This is reflective through the convenient shuttle services to and from Bart, excellent student government structure and resources, organized student services and health centers, great events, and much more.
