San Diego State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (39)
While I felt I earned the academics and knowledge in the field of psychology I was not prepared to continue a career in the field. What good is having an outstanding academic performance without the knowledge of how to use it. The school does not help you determine what you could do with this degree, what the next steps are during and after undergrad to obtain a career, nor does it offer the work experience needed to be prepared for a career.
If wanting to remember the best college experience, I highly encourage San Diego State University. They thrive on diversity, leadership, and people's capability to think differently in today's society. The classes are impactful and the teachings do not disappoint. The professors have real-world experience and programs to help guide future computer scientists. Also, there are financial aid for first time or low-incoming students. Highly recommend to attend this institution.
SDSU is a solid school. I believe that SDSU is the epitome of "you get what you put into it." If you want to learn and push yourself, than you can do so. If you want to just ride the wave and just graduate you can surely do that. As for amenities some buildings are older with some broken roof squares, and others are brand new with comfortable chairs and nice A/C. The library is fairly large with great desk sizes so you can spread out appropriately. It gets extremely full during finals and midterms but other wise I studying there was a nice. The students on campus are very friendly and if you need help you can surely find it (this goes for professors, also). I obtained an Economics degree and I felt like the classes had great teachers but the curriculum was not as mathematical as I would have liked. Depending on what you like this can be good or bad. Lastly and for some most importantly, SDSU is a Pepsi school.
San Diego State University is an opportunity for both academic and personal growth. I learned not only in the classroom, but outside as well. I became a peer advisor, joined the swim team, and met several life-long friends, all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA. The teachers want you to succeed! I was given ample resources and learned so much about Psychology and myself. I am very happy with my decision and I would recommend this school to anybody!
San Diego State University is an amazing university with lots to offer. I went for five years in order to complete a degree in Bachelors in Kinesiology and a minor in Cellular and Molecular Biology. My undergraduate advisor and teachers were always looking to help us advance in our particular careers, and willing to sit down and talk to you if you were having a problem. The campus is absolutely beautiful and has since made multiple upgrades to buildings and classrooms. On campus there is also a gym with a rock wall, and excursions for students. A pool, badminton courts, basketball courts, and lots more facilities. My friends and I often went to the advanced screening movie nights, concerts and the bowling alley that were on campus. It was truly a great experience and I've gained long lasting friendships with people from all across world.
I come from a household where Spanish is the only spoken language and my family had no educational background. I had to overcome many obstacles to be the first member of my family to graduate from college. I obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice at San Diego State University and currently obtaining my MA at The University of San Francisco. San Diego State helped me overcome many obstacles. The academic advisors on campus did a fantastic job of helping me out with my career goals. The financial aid department was very helpful throughout the process and was very reliable. The campus was great and the people I met along the way were absolutely amazing. San Diego State helped me become a first generation college graduate with goals of obtaining higher education. Thank you so much!
One of the best Social Work schools in So-Cal. Outstanding teachers that demand a high level of competence. SDSU MSW program has a good relationship with local non-profit organizations to foster internships and post-grad employment, You will leave ready to take the LCSW examination.
San Diego State University (SDSU) is a fantastic institution. For those individuals who are seeking a military friendly university or are applying for an ROTC program, I can't think of a better school to attend. The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) is top notch and provides Veterans and Cadets a welcoming environment with its dedicated living facility for SDSU students as well as an active social club. The Criminal Justice program is highly recognized and it's proximity to a multitude of bureaus (SDPD, Border Patrol, DEA, etc.) makes it a fantastic institution to network. One also can't refute the fact that campus is located just minutes away from top ranked beaches and surf spots such as La Jolla and Blacks Beach with weather to accommodate outdoor enthusiast year round. There is no better place! Go Aztecs!
This university really helped me expand my interests. The level of education provided by professors on campus is incredible, and I have never had a bad experience with any faculty. I have received all the support necessary to continue my education and eventually go on to grad school, where I will excel in my future.
San Diego State University has lots to offer. The teachers and faculty are there to help. As long as you set aside time to meet with them they are more than willing to help students. The campus and surrounding San Diego area make for a great college experience. I spent a lot of time in the library, I would advise all students to find a "go-to" area to study daily. Studying in dorm rooms or apartments is next to impossible. GO AZTECS!
