Honestly, there are good and bad parts aboutAverageJournalism
Honestly, there are good and bad parts about this school. A lot of the general education classes that freshman are forced to take are a waste of time and money. I felt like it was useless for me to take Anthropology when I'm a Journalism major. Also, if you're not in greek life it can be very difficult to find things to do since a large population of SDSU is involved in greek life. Other than that, the campus is beautiful and the weather is amazing year round!

Ok obviously SDSU is a party school, butAverageCommunications
Ok obviously SDSU is a party school, but the faculty and students are laid back. There's a lot to do on and off campus, so if you're complaining about your college experience is boring, that's because you're not looking in the right place. Lots of hot women but try to avoid the fraternities and sororities like it's the plague since every semester there's a brand new strain of STD's. Hopefully you'll come to this awesome school.

I just finished my first year at SDSUNot so brightAccounting
I just finished my first year at SDSU as a transfer student. I had the option of transferring to several of the UCs but opted to attend SDSU because it is clearly in full upswing and I was excited to be a part of the upward momentum. If you get the chance to live on campu do so. It's just easier to meet more people that way. The beginning of the year is full of awesome events, so take advantage of that, and try to join as many clubs as you can. I also advise incoming transfer students to hit the ground running. I was a 4.0 student coming in but I found myself having to put in A LOT more effort into my studying.
