Scholarships: The financial aid provided was great however the school has consistently done a poor job of relaying information about the process and its progress. In the end, I did receive aid.

Party Scene: The party scene here is pretty good. Although most of them get shut down by the police pretty quickly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the food options on campus are good. However, eating them constantly can mess with your stomach and make you wish that there were more options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are small and bathrooms slightly unkept but for how great the social life is and how close anything and everything you need is, I cannot complain. All of my classes, the eateries, the market (on and off campus) and friends who live on other parts of the campus are a mere 10 minute walk away from my dorm.

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.
