San Francisco State University was known as commuter school. The majority of my colleagues come from low income families and work part time to support their studies. The number of students that majored in physics was no more than forty, and as a result, the faculty did their best to provide assistance to the undergraduates whenever possible. My professors understood that some of us worked full time, and sat down with each of us individually to help figure out a course of action so that we can succeed in the class or accomplish our labs with sufficient time. The program also had its own room for the undergraduate and graduate students that gave us an opportunity to collaborate together and to plan our courses together. This cohort of students would also collaborate together with the professors to organize trips to gaze at the stars with the telescopes that were provided by the department, to attend lectures from other renowned researchers in specific fields, to have the opportunity to see the candidate professors that come to fill in spots left by retired ones, and to be a cohort that struggled together and succeeded together. I had been at another university prior to this, and the amount of care they showed for the undergraduates and their education was phenomenal.
Not a lot of school spirit but if you don't enjoy that kind of surrounding and love exploring a new city, it's a great location.
I love SFSU. Great professors, onde of the best Poli Sci schools in the nation. Very diverse.
SF is a great school that had a good amount of business classes to choose from. I think they have more variety now than when I went to school? The teachers are hit and miss so definitely do some research if you have the ability to select the teacher and class you want. I learned a lot while I was at SF State. The downer is that it is pretty much a commutter college so a lot of people don't stay on campus so campus life isn't as lively as those with a lot of school attendees living nearby. Super super convenient location and reasonably affordable.
It's not necessarily for everyone but I would suggest at least taking a couple classes at a community to see if it is. A college degree does not necessarily guarantee a job or that you will even stick with that initial career path but it does give you an advantage and does gives you some overall knowledge about the world. It's also a great place to network and possibly build a group of friends and acquaintances that may serve as resources for you when you graduate. As the cliche goes, college is what you make of it.
SF State is good school, liberal teachers, wish they were more open to new technologies though - sometimes they are old fashioned in some ways.. but definitely recommend!
Overall it's good school and program. I wish there was more guidance and mentorship at the graduate program though. Not sure there was personal attention to each student.
Don't do it. SFSU is working on getting better. I loved my major in general.
Should have chosen to go to another school. Could have been better than it was. Teachers were awful and unhelpful. Facilities need to be updated. Classes were impacted or only offered every other year. Choose another school with better job placement assistance.
