Apr 24 2014Electrical Engineering
The biggest problem with the school is that it is administrator heavy with little regard for academics. The school seems to be more concerned with hiring and retaining over paid administrators than attracting and retaining quality instructors. Funds are taken from students to build useless admin building that are not needed, while several colleges are being forced to cut cost to only the bare min. Larger classes are forced on students, with very few labs and very little applied learning.

Apr 08 2014Chemistry
This school is really on the rise, and has risen in national rankings almost every year. Everyone in CA knows about SDSU, most people out of state, and it is starting to receive some international attention as well because of the growing amount of research that is being done. I was able to get the classes I needed, but it wasn't always the best schedule. Most CA public universities suffer from this. Facilities are excellent, school vibe is great, and the parties are fun too. It is 100% so-cal feel, but there are students from norcal and all over the world, so don't be afraid you're not right for this school just because you don't know how to surf. Altogether, I can't wait to see how this university grows over the years, and would definitely attend again if I had to do it all over.

San Diego State University is the best California

May 04 2014Accounting
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.
