Regardless of what is/has been said about San Diego State's reputation—I strongly believe that my experiences at SDSU prepared me for the corporate world.

Sure, there are professors that appear as if they have it out for you. Sure, there are professors that quite frankly, shouldn't be teaching in the first place. Sure, you'll feel at times as if you're learning absolutely nothing. It doesn't matter where you go—you'll always have that. However, I feel that there are far more professors that do care about their students and are in essence, good quality educators. It is up to you to make the most out of college. As opposed to high school, you are there because you want to be. Professors aren't going to go out on a limb to try to please you. It's sad, but true. With classrooms filled to capacity, they can only do so much, that's just reality. It's up to you to make sure you put forth as much effort as possible—even if that means making a few office visits or (you're gonna hate this) asking questions during lecture.

I only speak on behalf of the College of Business, but if presentations scare you—then you're better off choosing another major. You can bet on having at LEAST one presentation in EVERY class. You may hate it or you may love it. Personally, I believe this is a big POSITIVE. Whether you like it or not, the corporate world is all about communication and getting your point across. It could be with your manager or a client—if you can't get your point across, then you're at a SEVERE disadvantage.

My advice to current/future students is to understand that high school and college are two different learning environments. You attend lecture because you want to—not because you're scared of being suspended. Professors know this, which is why you might not like them not giving a hoot about who you are or why you're not getting the most out of that particular class. If you don't like a professor, you just have to deal with it. You can't just attend class and expect to pass with straight A's. You will spend hours at home or in the library studying. You will spend valuable days off preparing for school related projects. And you will have to actually put forth the effort of communicating with your professors. If not, you're better off getting your degree via the web…
