You are very lucky (if you're gay) that I'm willing to write this opinion. When I decided to attend SFSU there were not many people whom I can rely on for few questions. Anyways,

Let me start with the nagatives. First, SFSU is the ugliest college I've every seen in my life. Buildings are like boxes, not at all harmonious to the human imagination. Secondly, SFSU is quite homophobic if you live on-campus. I received harassments and name-calling all the time. Some students who live on-campus come from the Bay Area, but don't be surprise if you find a large number of them coming from conservative places (narrow-minded areas) such as San Diego/Orange County. Of course, in general,

there are a huge number of gay-friendly students, especially Native San Franciscans who were raised in the City and live at home rather than on-campus.

I cannot comment much on majors. However, I do know that if you are to take physics/math/enginerring courses in the Thornton Hall, then the experiences could be uncomfortable. Humanities/Social Science Buildings is the best. It is where sociology, economics, geography, environmental science, and I think, criminal justice, courses are usually held. HSS looks simple, but it is much more comfortable than the gruesome experience of having to sit in stiff chairs and listen to professors who teach you quantum-mechanics in mandarin chinese.

A nearby community college, City College of San Francisco, is more gay-friendly, beautiful campus, and great profs…
