After San Francisco State University

The faculty and passion in this institution is remarkable. My only complaint is the difficulty to obtain classes, making it harder to reach expected graduation date.

I love SFSU so far because of the diversity of the students. I've been able to meet people from all over ranging from the United Kingdom and people from my hometown. The academics are great and the campus is beautiful to me, it appealed to me a lot since it had a naturalistic feel to it and I'm a fan of cold weather. One thing I'd like to see change is more sports teams but other than that I love this school.

Overall San Francisco State is an alright school. The staff is friendly, the campus is beautiful, the dorm rooms are pretty big and the food isn't terrible. The only thing i would like to be changed at this school is the price. You're paying way to much money for what you are receiving, for example; You need to pay for extra ranch at the dining places, you only have three options on where you can eat and they close the dining hall and cafe way to early and open the pizza place way to late.
