It is really sad that such a mediocre university would be found in such an awesome cultural center. San Francisco is such a great place with astounding architecture, beautiful scenery, and diverse neighborhoods. Always so much to do. Yet San Francisco State provides such a low level of intellectual activity. It is so disorganized that you have to stay on university employees like Homer Simpson on a box of doughnuts in order to get anything done. You must, you must approach them as if they are first-graders needing micromanagement because SFSU employees tend to be rude, irresponsible, and just don't care.

I think most people are just attracted to the city and not to the school itself. People seem to want to live in San Francisco badly enough that they are willing to put up with a cheesy school so that they can do so.

If it weren't for that, just imagine how much worse the budget crisis would be without those tuition dollars! For a good education, there are far better schools in the area such as University of San Francisco. USF may come with a much heavier price tag, but it's a case of you get what you pay for.
