Campus Housing: I've only lived in the Village Apartments, but they are the best of housing. Up to 5 people per apartment, full kitchen, 2 baths, and a living room. Rent is decent for San Francisco, considering it includes water, electricity, cable, and a required meal plan. The bedrooms are adequately spacious for 2 maybe 3 people. There are laundry rooms on site that cost extra, which is unfortunate considering what we're paying on top of housing and tuition, but they go out of order a lot or students will break the machines. Overall it's been great.

Overall Experience: I think other reviewers of SFSU are only looking at the negatives of the school. It's not the most spirited, nor does it have a great social scene, but it really is beautiful and laid back. Also remember that you're right next to downtown where all the social happenings really are. If you're motivated and willing to ask for help, SFSU can be an enjoyable experience.

Athletics: As a Division II school, nobody feels any motivation to attend sporting events. Football is nonexistent and the other sports, basketball, baseball, volleyball, wrestling, and track, are just mediocre. They try to get the student body interested in attending and supporting, but results are slim. It's a shame because the facilities look decent.

Overall Experience: Professors seem uninterested in what they teach. Students are paying so much yet we get treated like slaves and are told to do tedious work that won'y even help us in life. I've encountered so many mean professors and they bury us in homework and then ask us if we did anything fun for the weekend, it's like no I was doing your homework. I've gotten way too much stress.

Overall Experience: The city is just a bus ride away so you get the best of both worlds by being away from the city to focus and then going in for some fun time.

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.
