Not too many parties unless you know people who know people. A lot of cute girls but not very approachable. I can say the reason I love this campus is the girls, there just so many of them and a lot of them are just gorgeous. Too bad the weather is the type that makes you cover up unlike SD and SB.

I'm an engineer so I can't speak for everybody else but our department just sucks. Its so underfunded but then again our Cinema and Arts programs at SF state are one of the best in the country. For engineers we just manage whatever we have. I've met a lot of cool cats at this school and had plenty of memorable experiences that I feel would keep me from leaving this campus, but for my major I need to look into the future and realize this school isn't for me.

If you are an engineer, it's not a bad school but I'm sure other schools are way better! Also that when taking major related classes, expect to have classmates that are way older than you. You kind of loose touch of the whole college experience here too since after all is a commuter school.

The weed is dank and probably the best in the nation, just saying. I can say 3 out of 6 people who attend this school smoke so don't be surprised.

In the end, choose wisely. There's a lot of things I can say about SF state but I'll leave you to visit the campus. Don't believe everything the people touring the campus tell you. Go ask students personally, that way you get a straight and honest feel for the school.

I did a lot of f**king crazy sh*t at this school and I had the time of my life. You live around the city but you'll find not all of activities unless your 21.

Good luck :) Class of 2013 at SFSU - I will be transferring to Cal Poly Pomona for the Fall!!!

Contact me for any questions!! :)


Hey! I am an international student from Sweden and I am going to study at SFSU, spring 2013. I have read a lot of comments about it and despite all the negative comments about the social life it seems to be a nice university, hehe.

I was just wondering if it's easy to get a room on or off campus? Where do I look for apartments and so on?

Dude I am applying for spring 2013 Engineering and ur comments are forcing me to change my decision .
commentCal Poly Pomona's engineering program is good, but MAJOR commuting school and you will be bored out of your mind in Pomona. There's NOTHING out there. I grew up in that area. Total suburbia. I now attend SFSU and I'm an engineering major. While the program is not as strong as Cal Poly Pomona's everything else about SFSU is better than Cal Poly. Good luck!
