San Diego State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (37)
SDSU is an amazing school! The institution prides itself in making leaders, and I've truly come out as one; having the opportunity to be apart the executive board of many select organizations on campus. I've gained and strengthened a myriad of skills as well have many life changing decisions such as studying abroad. SDSU encourages students to take a study abroad experience and even makes international experience a requirement for some majors which is very beneficial! It was an experience of a life time studying abroad. I have made many long life friends on this campus and experienced moments that I will never forget.
The biology degree is a well rounded curriculum. SDSU has an amazing faculty that love their subjects and love to help their students succeed. The only down side is that the emphasis for animal sciences had cut backs and don't have all the classes needed to complete it.
This school offered a lot of potential to engage in hands on learning which is essential to pursuing a career in biology. The lab facilities are also very nice compared to other institutions. The school is very active in trying to help students succeed.
San Diego State is a great college to attend. San Diego is a great location to go to school in and the campus is very diverse. I was happy with the curriculum learned in my degree field. Unfortunately, the field of criminal justice, specifically Law Enforcement, values experience more than education.
San Diego State University is a top ranked research University in Southern California. The rigorous curriculum and exceptional instruction from devoted professors during my time as an undergraduate has prepared me to further my education with my Master of Social Work degree. San Diego State University has an exceptionally diverse student body, which enhances the cultural awareness for each student attending the institution. Although I will be pursuing my Master of Social Work degree at Arizona State University, attending San Diego State helped to cement that decision for me with the exceptional learning experience from professors in all subject areas and the rigorous curriculum to keep your mind constantly learning and striving for more.
Great school with a lot of research opportunities in a wide variety of majors. Very diverse students and friendly and amazing professors. Many resources available for help with classes such as tutors and other study material. Students are open to helping others and have very noncompetitive attitudes.
SDSU offers students many ways to get ahead in life. They have an expansive list of classes and majors, which helps students find an area specific to their interests. Also, being such a large school guarantees students the ability to tap into a large network of alumni who have gone on to start businesses, become community leaders, and pursue more education. Having access to this network helps greatly when looking for internships, full time positions, mentorship, becoming an entrepreneur, and everything in between. But what I liked most about SDSU is the understood notion that this school transforms students into alumni who are ready to go into the work force and do great things. Being an engineering graduate, I couldn't agree more with the idea that my classes and the caliber of instructors I had were perfect for molding me into a budding professional ready to demonstrate my value and enhance the community around me. While I did choose to transition to the military shortly after graduating SDSU, and have since been honorably discharged, I can say that all of the aforementioned tools and accolades still hold just as useful as they were when I graduated eight years ago.
San Diego State University was a very beautiful campus. I was in the College of business, Accounting. Coursework was quite challenging but that may be because I didn't really like accounting. The campus lacks diversity. The African American population doesn't make up to 5% of the school (my estimate)
SDSU is diverse and has something for everyone. The quality of my doctoral program was outstanding and I can't recommend it highly enough.
I thought it was a good, affordable school. My major was very small and it was a close-knit group.
