1 College Freshman

Academics: My major is impacted. Only 80 out of 600 are accepted into the nursing program, and it is usually transfers.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off-campus after freshman year, but it is very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Not a lot of people bring cars here because parking is expensive and hard to find, so we all just rely on public transportation.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: It feels like everyone is in a sorority or fraternity and all they do is party and take pictures. They aren't even that big because we have no sorority or frat houses because they aren't allowed.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There never seems to be computers available. If you printed everyday, it would be very expensive. The network is very slow, and you have to constantly be signing into your account.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: SF weather is known to be very bipolar. Most of the time it would be cloudy.

During their first year at San Francisco State, many students may be saddened and lonely, as it may seem hard to find the right social group outright. But when it is finally time to leave for good, the tears are sure to come flowing. With so much one can explore and experience within the seven-mile stretch of San Francisco, SFSU offers much more than what other universities and areas offer in longer mile stretches. The trendy piercing/tattoo shops of Haight Street, the tourism of Powell, the swell relaxation and jogging atmosphere of Embarcadero—they all combine to create an experience unlike any other city. The majority of students would still choose to go to SFSU rather than transfer or go to another school, mainly due to the culture.

San Francisco is one of the rare places where just about anyone who spends time in the city can at some point reach within themselves and find an aspect that runs parallel with the city. Even as a commuter student, one is sure to be able to soak up the fog and feel out the city. Take a moment to revel in all you have seen and heard. The experience is there—a growth from lowly student to man or woman.
