“The classes are small, so you’re not considered just a number. I had relationships with most, if not all, of my professors here at SDSU. The higher that I went in my degree, the more advice I would get from faculty. I think that advice went a really long way and helped me decide what direction I should take in my career.”

“From the first day I arrived at SDSU, I experienced something that I think is very representative of the culture here. That is the kindness of the people who hold doors open, greet you with a smile, ask about your day and give you personal attention. Some might say this is just common courtesy that is found anywhere else but I think kindness is more pronounced within this campus than anywhere else.”

They have a lot of events and activities at SDSU that helped it feel more like home and made me feel like a member of SDSU’s family.”
