San Francisco State University Graduate Reviews

6 reviews
The school is absolutely amazing. The school has so many opportunities to be apart of any changes happening in the world. No matter what religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation - SFSU is has something to offer.

The professors are amazing and truly care about the students. The campus food is comprised of many local vendors with changing menus.

Student housing is difficult and limited. However, many great off campus housing and free city transportation for all students.

I love the faculty and commitment they have to the success of their grad students! The program is well developed and important. I would like to see more resources for commuter students- commuter lounges and such.
Fantastic professors in the English department but lack of variety as far as classes are concerned. This is mainly due to under enrollment. The classes are small and intimate, which is wonderful for discussion and getting involved with the material.
