4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: What I've noticed about my campus is that they take time to explain the importance of safety and even have a course on how to react during sexual assault or what to do if a student is hurt. Security is always on campus and take every step necessary to keep every student safe day and night.

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I have friends who live in the dorms and I hear it is very expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports is important for our campus but it's rarely heard of throughout campus. Recently our school has made efforts to put more enthusiasm in sports at our campus by building more areas for sport competitions to take place.

Overall Experience: My overall experience in San Francisco State University has been very exciting so far, I feel welcomed in the college community and the students there seem very open minded and helpful. I feel that my school is unique because it was the first school in the entire nation to establish the first department of Ethnic Studies. Due to this accomplishment, there are many students who come with various backgrounds and this gives us the opportunity to learn from other different cultures. If I could choose which college to go to again I would definitely choose San Francisco State. I commute everyday so It does get difficult when there is lack of money and living on campus is expensive, but the welcoming atmosphere of the campus makes all things better.

Athletics: I am not involved with the sports on my campus. The few times I have seen different sports practice, they do not seem too competitive.

Health & Safety: The clinic on campus is very helpful. They provide you with the most affordable options and do not discriminate. The waiting time to be attended is manageable.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although it's a commuter campus their does seem to be a sense of community. Professors are all professional in their field and class sizes vary.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Do to the history of my campus, a degree from there may actually help you stand out in certain fields. In the Broadcasting department, my campus is exceptional.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at my school is not very prominent and there is not much pressure to join one. We do not have fraternity or sorority houses on campus either, further diminishing the Greek presence. There is not a different perception between Greek and non-Greek students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: San Francisco State university is a campus that is filled with vibrant life everywhere you go. From the people to the classes there is no shortage of diversity or excitement for the student. There is also a large base of teachers and staff that care about students well-being in all aspects, making my campus feel like a safe environment for me and others on it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at San Francisco State University has been very positive. The environment is great and there is a lot to learn while still having fun. I really loved the location because it was a 5 minute drive to the beach. The people are nice and it is easy to make friends, especially by joining clubs that you are interested in.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SFSU was not my dream school; in fact, I was not even certain what I wanted to do after high school but for having had as many struggles as I have had and personal issues I have gone through, SFSU has been as helpful as possible.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: SFSU does its very best to protect students and provide help for any problems but there is only so much they can do when there are so many secluded parts of campus and considering how open campus is.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, however I have seen many of my friends' dorms and apartments. The dorming quality is decent but could be up scaled for how much they charge.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is very active and helpful even more so with such a commuter school.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not an athlete at my college so I do not have much opinion on facilities.

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.
