Excellent school of public health. The environmental health program was especially good. Lots of one on one attention from both your graduate advisor as well as professors. Lots of opportunities for research. Loved every second of this program.

Degree: Japanese Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

SDSU is a great business school so many students double major or Major in International Business with a minor in Japanese. The Japanese program here is very good and is very fast paced, challenging and useful for business majors, but also good for the language on it's own. I highly recommend taking advantage of their study abroad program. It changed my life and it was the best thing I ever did. Do note that the classes can be very challenging though and require a lot of study. Don't overload yourself with many classes that require a lot of memorization. I was an art major as well so I tried to balance a couple of studio classes with lecture/memorization type classes, which made for a better combination.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2012

It's a nice school and relatively inexpensive. It's located in the heart of san diego and is beautifully constructed. The course work depends on your interests but is generally pretty good and matches industry standard within couple of years.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

SDSU was a great place to go, but as a football player I wish more students would have taken interest in our team. Support definitely grew as we did better, but that stadium should be near full more often, not just Bowl Games or the firework show. Watch out for the "career" professors; the best professors there are the ones who have done something else in their life (ran a business, lawyer, stocks, etc) that you REALLY learn something from. I'm glad the majority of my professors didn't shoce liberal agendas down our throats like many that I hear about.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Despite what I say, I'm glad that I went to San Diego State University. It was a great experience that made me friends for a lifetime, with a beautiful campus that I enjoyed, within a city that's wonderful to live in. However, as an educational institution, the school has many problems serving the needs of its students. Due to budget cuts (which most schools are facing in times like these) many classes were cut or unavailable during my four years at SDSU, with more disappearing as the years went on. The race for registering classes was a brutal one, and budget cuts also made it increasingly difficult to get into your desired major (as it made it more competitive, because of being "impacted"). I had several teachers that I will remember and cherish as being extremely helpful and intelligent...and many more that were quite the opposite. However, the instructor reviewing system at the end of each semester is designed to address the concerns of students, and everyone I knew took that as an opportunity to describe why their professors failed as educators. In short, the school as very little money. With what money it does have, it builds million-dollar "student centers" (which was literally being built my entire four years there) instead of addressing dwindling classes and teachers. The two majors that I had were very different, but they were both competent. The English department is fine, and the TFM department is beginning to make a name for itself within the film school world.

Degree: Public Health Education and Promotion
Graduation Year: 2016

SDSU was a really good school both in the classrooms and with any leisure activities. The school spirit there is incredible and Aztecs really stick together. A majority of the professors are really helpful and are flexible with their office hours to help students. Getting involved and going to events are what will really make your experience there a good one !
