Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars
April - 2/6/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013
"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."

Joseph Sanchez - 12/15/2016
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

Amanda M. Eberhardt - 12/13/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015
"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)"

"I thought it was a good, affordable school. My major was very small and it was a close-knit group."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008
"I liked my college. It was and the campus was nice but sometimes I felt like the campus was too big and there were too many students. so it didn't feel like a community. It felt more like a subway station where everyone just passes each other by you and never really see the same people everyday. "
