3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living of campus is much cheaper if you have about 4 other roommates.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: San Francisco is a great place to try new delicious foods, there is all kinds out cultural foods. Use YELP!!

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: This is not typically a party school. Parties end early in Park Merced because of the neighborhood and many police patrolling.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have very bad experience as my RA did not do anything when multiple times I told her my roommate is housing her friend. I felt that the money I am spending to live here is not worth it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: people would have to be in alot of financial need to be able to cover tuition and housing. It is expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There needs to be a more variety of food types.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of living on campus is expensive, yet worth it because the library, tutoring, organizations are accessible. Living in the apartment dorms is different from residential dorms because people tend to communicate less and are not as open to others. The advantage to living in the apartment dorms is having the ability to cook and acquire more privacy!

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a place to be at if you're really into sports or intramurals.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Westlake would be the closest in Daly City but just pray that everything works properly in your housing complex. The first time I lived in Westlake, my roommate and I lived in one of the newly built apartment complexes and it was wonderful. The second one was a townhouse--prices vary depending on the location of the complexes--and the heater doesn't work. :/

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Usually here about parties held in Park Merced but I've only been to kickbacks with my club organization and close friends that I've made up here.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It's alright. However, there were a few instances where there was a bomb threat and students were ONLY evacuated from ONE building rather than the entire campus...

College Sophomore

Scholarships: Never applied for financial aid

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I've never lived on campus so I wouldn't be able to review housing related review ratings. However, I really like the large food variety inside the Cesar Chavez building. There are two floors that have food: main floor and a basement. The main floor is the one I typically go to since they have a salad bar and these crispy chicken strips that I always get with my salad. The basement has the "fast food" choices like panda express, pizza, etc. The building also has a gaming floor and its own pub too.

College Freshman

Athletics: Have not used the facilities.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Not a part of Greek life.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have no experience with off campus housing but am currently looking for one and it has been difficult.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a mall nearby but I have never seen anyplace open past ten.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Commuter so I wouldn't know.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I am not familiar with it overall but one thing that doesn't seem right are the no bikes on campus rule.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not applied for scholarships but my financial aid this year has taken a hit for reasons I am still unsure of.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's got everything and they're not necessarily overpriced. Decent quality, nothing gourmet.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: hardest things to do is find something off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Getting to where you want w/o a car sucks.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are very few fun parties, usually very dry.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The admin are very fair.

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.
