San Francisco State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (26)
I loved how small my college was; all of the students were very close friends. The professors were amazing and supportive. The amount of diversity was also very inspiring. For the International Relations B.A. you have to write a thesis paper, which is very unusual for an undergraduate degree. However, I found it to be such a great learning experience and it really prepared me for a Master's program, which I am very excited to start this Fall!
Although I attended SFSU during the height of the CSU budget crisis and faced furlough days and having to crash classes, I was still able to graduate with a bachelor's degree in only three years. This was the best program for me as I knew i wanted to teach English at the high school level. It also qualified me to teach middle school if the opportunity presents itself. The professors and advisors had lots of real world experiences teaching in classrooms all across the spectrum of ELA and ELD. I exited the program feeling prepared not only for a credential program, but for the teaching profession as well.
San Francisco State University offered an array of teaching styles, which met the various learning styles of their students. The professors are highly educated and motivated in the success of their students. I feel SFSU properly prepared me for my career in Education.

San Francisco State University was known as commuter school. The majority of my colleagues come from low income families and work part time to support their studies. The number of students that majored in physics was no more than forty, and as a result, the faculty did their best to provide assistance to the undergraduates whenever possible. My professors understood that some of us worked full time, and sat down with each of us individually to help figure out a course of action so that we can succeed in the class or accomplish our labs with sufficient time. The program also had its own room for the undergraduate and graduate students that gave us an opportunity to collaborate together and to plan our courses together. This cohort of students would also collaborate together with the professors to organize trips to gaze at the stars with the telescopes that were provided by the department, to attend lectures from other renowned researchers in specific fields, to have the opportunity to see the candidate professors that come to fill in spots left by retired ones, and to be a cohort that struggled together and succeeded together. I had been at another university prior to this, and the amount of care they showed for the undergraduates and their education was phenomenal.
Not a lot of school spirit but if you don't enjoy that kind of surrounding and love exploring a new city, it's a great location.
I love SFSU. Great professors, onde of the best Poli Sci schools in the nation. Very diverse.
SF is a great school that had a good amount of business classes to choose from. I think they have more variety now than when I went to school? The teachers are hit and miss so definitely do some research if you have the ability to select the teacher and class you want. I learned a lot while I was at SF State. The downer is that it is pretty much a commutter college so a lot of people don't stay on campus so campus life isn't as lively as those with a lot of school attendees living nearby. Super super convenient location and reasonably affordable.
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.
SF State is good school, liberal teachers, wish they were more open to new technologies though - sometimes they are old fashioned in some ways.. but definitely recommend!
