San Francisco State University Reviews
San Francisco State University was my top school when applying for colleges. I was so stoked to come here because I love the city and the environment. There is so much diversity and acceptance on campus and I love that about this university. However, I do wish they had more on campus events for students or fun interactive events for us to meet more people. After the first week of school, the "party scene" died down and we did not get to engage as much with other people because we don't know where to go to find them! Other than that I love the school and campus.
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.
I transferred to San Francisco State University from my junior college, and I have enjoyed it tremendously. My professors have all been fantastic, and really passionate about teaching as well as going out of their way to help outside of teaching (office hours, projects, letters of recommendations, etc). You'll find a lot of student peers who are motivated and don't mess around with their studies; on the other hand (because you're in San Francisco), you will get yourself into a vibrant nightlife scene- there's always a party, a club, a bar, or a social outing you can find yourself in if you're in the mood for it. I think SFSU is a great fit for many people to get out their comfort zone and explore!
