4 College Junior

Academics: I really enjoy SDSU, I'm very proud to be a jackrabbit. The professors are great and the curriculum is helping me to be marketable in the workforce.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I don't really know what else is out there for my major but from the classes I've taken so far the faculty is helpful and friendly. However, I don't know where out professors stand compared to others on a national level.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The program could use some tweaking but overall a nice little program.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It is a lot harder than the last college I attended and some of my professors won't even work with me if I have questions.

4 College Junior

Academics: Architecture major is the only major where every student gets their own dedicated desk. It is a relatively close-knit group since we are always here working.
