SDSU was an amazing experience for me. I like to say that it is truly where I found myself. San Diego is a very diverse city and attracts people from all over the world. They have an amazing study abroad program and international student program. The campus is beautiful and their programs are highly ranked like their Accounting department. There are great opportunities and organizations on campus. Plenty of job fairs and a well qualified career center. I would highly recommend this school not only for the academics, but for the location in a beautiful city.
Attending San Diego State University was one of the most influential experiences I have ever had in my life. It was educational, inspiring, and enjoyable. The Liberals Studies degree program is in the College of Education at SDSU. The new advisors of the college are extremely helpful and understanding. The courses were helpful and very different from one to the next. The courses most often depend on the professors that are teaching it. I would recommend getting to know your professors, and that goes with any school you may attend. The same goes for the advisors at your field of study office.The relationships I gained with professors in my undergrad career were also the letters of recommendation for my graduate career application. SDSU has great amenities around the campus as well. There are many social and cultural events that can help you become involved and meet more people. The basketball and football games are also very popular. The campus is very large, but beautiful. Also plan ahead if your classes are back to back. The library has many great areas. What many people do not know is that the entire fifth floor is a quiet study area. That is always helpful to decrease distractions when studying for a big exam. Finally, I would like to remind students at SDSU they although there are many fun aspects of this college campus, your main goal is to graduate. Your GPA should be your top priority and being a student is what you are ultimately paying for.
This was a good school to attend. The teachers that I had were very helpful and prompt at responding to emails and questions. They are an open-minded university that embraces everyones background and lifestyle while ensuring that everyone stays safe. The last semester that I attended was when Trump was voted president and their were several racial attacks that happened to Muslim students. The school was very quick to issue statements condemning those activities and ensuring that the culprit was found. They have a very good safety alert system. They also have an overwhelming list of scholarships that you can apply for. There are many extra-curricular activities that the university hosts, including concerts and even fairs, with rides. There is something for everyone.
San Diego State University is a school that has a little bit of something for everyone as long as you are willing to actively look for and pursue it. It's true that there is still a party culture there, but it's overblown to a very high degree. There's also hundreds of clubs here, tons of academic, creative, and professional resources, as well as a sports scene. The weather is amazing and most of my professors were some of the most helpful people I have ever had the privilege to work with. I definitely recommend trying to stay overnight with a friend here if you are considering the school, get a feel for it both during the day and night. But as someone who read more books then partied, I can say without a doubt San Diego State has something for you here, just got to look for it.
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!
