"San Francisco State University is a commuter school. There are many students that come from all around the Bay Area, and many that come from Southern California. It is known to be a commuter school because students tend to just go to class and go home. There are extracurricular activities on campus but it is not fully submerged in the school spirit type of way. SFSU is an amazing school that will get you the education you need and provide you with the training needed for your career."

"San Francisco State University is a heavily impacted commuter school. It is hard to enroll in classes and the Psychology department is impacted, meaning students do not get into their major until their junior year. During the first two years, the focus is on general education, which was uninteresting to me. However, after being accepted into the Psychology department, professors and lecturers were extremely supportive and welcoming."

"San Francisco State University offers a variety of different majors. My major was psychology and I believe it is a well rounded program that teaches a lot about what is to be expected from the outside world. I came in as a transfer student and I believe the process to get into the psychology department is easier when you transfer in. The professor's there are well educated and eager to help any student. The psychology program here also offers a lot of different volunteer sites which gives you an opportunity to see what field of psychology you may want to pursue. The school itself is very diverse in it's students and culture overall. You meet people from all parts of the world and the beautiful landscape of the school just keeps you in awe. I would not have wanted to get my bachelor's anywhere else and I am more then grateful that I had the opportunity to attend San Francisco State University."

"San Francisco State University offers large classroom sizes in their psychology department. This means a minimum of 30 students will be in a class and in the largest there were 400 students. This impacts the learning experience in a way that I did not find suitable for my ideal learning conditions. The sheer number of questions asked in a single class could take up the entire period if the instructor did not take precedence in their presentations. If you want help from an instructor it is imperative you attend instructor's office hours. In my opinion the content is comparable to most other undergraduate psychology schools. What I mean by this is there is nothing exceptional about the SFState psychology classes in particular. What I would describe as exceptional are the elective courses. The Holistic Health courses in particular stretched my awareness of mental health in ways traditional western psychology did not. I would recommend this college to anyone who is interested in being surrounded by one of the most progressive student bodies I've known at any college. I would also like to say that the city of San Francisco itself offers a melting pot of cultures unlike anywhere else I've been in California. This is an entirely different and separate life learning experience that is worth encountering in your college years."

"It's not necessarily for everyone but I would suggest at least taking a couple classes at a community to see if it is. A college degree does not necessarily guarantee a job or that you will even stick with that initial career path but it does give you an advantage and does gives you some overall knowledge about the world. It's also a great place to network and possibly build a group of friends and acquaintances that may serve as resources for you when you graduate. As the cliche goes, college is what you make of it."
