I came here as a one of my safety schools. There are smart kids here. I was surprised but especially in the engineerinng department there are a few really bright kids. The girls here are insane and very hot. My advice would be if you want to get into parties and meet non fresan women then rush a frat. Most frat bros are not a douche as they appear but many are. Pick one that just feels right. Don't listen to anyone or rush because of a reputation. Also, make friends in the dorm and don't get caught drinking. Automatic one year probation. Very fun school with surprisingly good academics and insane social life.

If you need financial aid this school is a train wreck turn around now and apply at USD. The staff is rude, unethical and lies a lot. If you are an older student then definitely turn around. I have never been so disrespected in my life. I can't tell you how many times I was asked if I was a parent or a student. The staff as well as the faculty treat you like you are still in high school and will never be honest enough to admit they made mistake. In one on my classes a student called another student raciest, and the professor did nothing about it.

San Diego State University is the best California

San Diego State University is the best California state university. Campus life has a lot to offer and SDSU is not a commuter school. If you're aiming for a career in accounting then definitely go here so you can be like me! Seriously though school is pretty great. 5 Star weather, student union, basketball team, school spirit, people, San Diego location, greeklife, gaslamp in downtown, upward momentum, wonderful people, and great modern/Spanish/Cali style architecture. It is a big school with big school benefits, some people are afraid of the crowd, but honestly being in a big school has way more positives than negatives. Nothing is overwhelming at all; kind of like how LA is daunting urban sprawl, San Diego feels much more decentralized. SDSU also feels that way. It is hard to explain when all you see are the numbers like 77,000+ applicants and about 33,000 students. I never felt like "just a number" or whatever people are afraid of. It is actually really exciting to attend such a large university.
