3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games that I've attended are always exciting to attend, but in terms of fan support from other students, they aren't too enthusiastic about sports at the school because they either commute everyday and are too tired to care enough to put the extra energy to attend and support the games, or they just hold not interest for sports at the college level in general. The ones that attend are either friends of the players, family members of the players, or local alumni around the city that enjoy attending the games.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I never had any interest in joining the Greek life so I'm not familiar with the terms and locations of their groups and facilities.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live within close proximity of the campus so I cannot speak for the individuals that do live close to the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off campus very often unless I'm at school late at night and all the on campus dining areas have closed. Whenever I do go off campus to eat? I go to the Stonestown mall down the street, and I try to pick the least expensive meal there which usually turns out to be the least filling as well.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There have been certain events in recent months where students were walking out late at night and they were either followed and or sexually harassed in some way. But that was due to the lack of safety precautions of those students that chose to walk alone in areas that weren't well lit. Aside from that I personally have never encountered any issues aside from certain students smoking wherever they please if they don't see any campus security around.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've never gone to and or head of any parties at school, so I'm not qualified to give an opinion.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I currently live with my father who has been permanently disabled from the neck down for the past 15 years now, but has enough mobility in his arms and upper torso to work two jobs and earn a little over $120,000 a year. There are 7 individuals that live at our home that he accommodates for, he has is medical bills from emergency room visits and or surgical procedures a few times a year, and household expenses on top of all of that. When I need FAFSA and or scholarships to have my back where my dad can't support me, I am met with loan offers only, and my dad ends up feeling the stress and financial pain of college expenses and we're forced to cut back and save every penny possible. Two years ago I received $200 in aid money, and never again was able to get anything no matter where I applied for merit based scholarships since I don't demonstrate financial need on paper despite the story behind the number. Thousands of dollars are already going into my education, so it would just be nice if the load was lightened a bit. So my search continues despite the lack of financial opportunity.

Campus Food: I am prone to getting migraines if I go about my day without eating especially since most of my classes are back to back. and I live 2 hours away from school. The Cesar Chavez building has saved me the trouble of having to deal with those headaches at many times since I've been at this campus.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus because I commute for 2 hours every day to and from the campus, so I am not familiar with how convenient and or comfortable the housing on campus is.

4 College Freshman

Administration: i never had any problems

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: IT helped a lot with books

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is easily accessible to public transportation as well as in close proximity to the school. However, just as everything is in San Francisco, off-campus housing tends to be extremely over-priced, which causes strain on student financial stability.

Off-Campus Dining: The food options in San Francisco are absolutely amazing. There are hundreds of amazing restaurants in the 7x7 mile city with a huge variety of ethnic and health-friendly options. The off-campus dining is truly one of the best aspects of SF life!

Administration: The campus strictness is very reasonable. As long as illegal behavior is done off of campus and noise complaints are kept to a minimum, it is very easy to get through your time on campus without trouble.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have not been able to apply for financial aid for my current college career, and therefore I cannot properly rate the process.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
