"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!"

"Overall it's good school and program. I wish there was more guidance and mentorship at the graduate program though. Not sure there was personal attention to each student."

"Should have chosen to go to another school. Could have been better than it was. Teachers were awful and unhelpful. Facilities need to be updated. Classes were impacted or only offered every other year. Choose another school with better job placement assistance."

"I completed my Junior and Senior years at SFSU taking mostly night and weekend classes. Since I was working, I never used financial aid, hence the three stars for that service--I never had to use it. For the most part, my courses were challenging and instructive. There were a couple that were useless. Those instructors are gone now so I won't mention names. My BS from SFSU was the only reason I was hired for programming jobs. I am now retired."

"San Francisco State University is an amazing university. I came across many professors while studying psychology and philosophy; all of which were accomplished in their respective field, passionate about their discipline and inspiring to learn from. The way that SFSU has set the degree programs is fruitful for all because there is the requirement to take a minimum number of classes outside one's main discipline. This results in the collaboration of varying perspectives and leads to enhanced creative skills. Also, having a few classes outside of psychology and philosophy enriched my social circle and aided me in self discovery. SFSU encourages study abroad, which I took advantage of and spent my last year studying in Australia. Being outside of the country and exposed to another education system widened and strengthened my perspective and appreciation of my studies at SFSU. It also helped me to realize that the quality of education and research skills that is taught, expected and upheld at SFSU is commendable. I am grateful for the opportunities and experiences that I had at SFSU. From my personal experience the faculty, emphasis on creativity and high standard education makes me highly recommend San Francisco State University."
