Beautiful campus. Really makes me feel at home and always wonderful weather. They are always bettering the campus to be more eco-friendly and updated. Also, the education is serious, but almost all the teachers understand the importance of a one-on-one relationship with their students, making this large campus feel very intimate and responsive.

SDSU has a lot of friendly students to help you out if you need to find a class or even general information like tutoring areas and study advice. The professors are generally very helpful and genuinely care about how well you do in their class.
