These schools are similar to San Diego State University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
San Diego State University offered a wide range of extracurricular activities, I loved that there was something for everyone. Allowing students to express individuality.
Unfortunately, I wish there were more opportunities for healthcare students to find hours. More preparation for furthering education was difficult in a large school.
The Kinesiology Pre-Physical Therapy major prepares you very well to apply to DPT school and there are a lot of opportunities to get involved on campus.
It is hard to make deep friendships with others because there are so many students. Really have to put in the effort to get involved on campus to make real friendships.
From transferring to attending SDSU, it was a pleasant experience without much hassle.
Parking is a little difficult so come early to find a spot or you'll end up being late.
I love my program in International Security and Conflict Resolution. It truly brings interesting perspectives to students interested in addressing the issues threatening humanity. I also like that I have been able to find student centers for women, LGBTQ, Latino, and Black students.
I do not like that it has an overall reputation for partying. I wish there were more educational resources, like archives and research help. Lastly, I do not like that the scholarship portal is only available for a limited time, and does not have a good enough variety.
San Diego State University has one of the most competitive nursing programs in the state of California; this is often overlooked by the general reputation of the school. The nursing program at SDSU is very rigorous but very rewarding. Classes are very fast-paced and challenging but definitely doable. I would recommend SDSU to anyone who craves new experiences while also being serious about their academics.
San Diego State University has a very interesting dining hall/food situation. Most food on meal plan is restaurants (fast food) and there is one dining hall type food option. This makes it very challenging to eat a variety of food, especially with dietary restrictions. The dining aspect of SDSU is a major downfall, but there are options for everyone and a Trader Joe's on campus!
Very nice, pleasant, and diverse environment for all kinds of people with varying interests.
Subpar parking system, especially for students.
