heyilovefriescream asked: Hi :) I just want to ask about SFSU? How much is the tuition fee for a college freshie? Also... how's the student or campus life there? Especially for International Students who grew up in a different country and are not accustomed to.. diversity, I guess? Thanks xx
Tuition is $3,220, it’s cheaper than last year, but I assume you’re an international student so you would have to pay a non-resident fee as well which is currently $372 per unit.
SFSU is known as a “commuter school” so school spirit is kind of dead since people leave campus when they are finished with classes, but it depends on how you perceive it. There’s always a lot going on though, especially if you hang out around the student center. On some days the school is packed, especially during the spring semester, and on other days it’s not. It’s a really beautiful campus. I’m sure you’d love it.
Also, I assume you’re planning on living on campus. Living on campus is a great experience! A lot going on. If you’re the partying type of person, living on campus is the best place to live because you’ll get a lot of party addresses. You meet A LOT of people so you might wanna look into living on campus versus living off campus. Living on campus is much more expensive, I lived in the apartment-style dorms and paid about $12,000 for the whole academic year with food included, but it was worth it because it’s a whole new experience. You’re always around people and meeting people, and you’re just a really short walk away from the main campus. A lot of people say it’s hard to make friends unless you live on campus, so thats another positive thing about living on campus. Plus you’re only this age once in your life, so despite the expensive costs, at least experience it once.
This school is really diverse. That’s one of the best things about SFSU. You’ll get use to it fast so don’t even worry about it.
629141995 asked: Hey I was just wondering what housing would you recommend a freshmen to live in at sfsu?
There’s 4 different types of housing that freshman can choose from. The Marys, STTC (Only for science and technology field major), Towers, or Village. If you want the traditional housing experience where it’s just one room shared with two people, two beds, two desks, and two closets, choose the Marys. I chose the Towers because it gives you that independent feeling and it’s like an apartment with two rooms, a bathroom, a living room, and a kitchenette, but it is more expensive.
The Village is mainly for international students and returning sophomores who are living on campus. It’s much bigger than the towers, some are 2 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms, and it’s a full kitchen. Some freshmen who apply early and pay the $1400 deposit early usually get this. But it’s the most expensive one out of all the housing.
If you have the money, I would say choose the Towers. The Mary Ward and Mark Park Hall housing community are hella small lol and I don’t like communal bathrooms.
One of the highlights of my freshman year in college. #SFSU #FriendshipGames #tbt #spuf #triforce #afterparty #rollindeep #csufullerton
If you’ve done the Freshman Quick Start Material Course Program, how is it? Is it pretty legit? Do you really get all the required books and access codes you need for class for a fixed price?
I like how the campus book store will get the books for you and notify you so you don’t have to wait in those longass lines during the first couple weeks of the semester.
And is the price of $280 a good deal?
So if you signed up last semester, let me know how this goes.
Cause $280 definitely beats having to pay almost $400 for all my books this semester.
Spring semester is gonna be schmackin. Starting at 9 am and ending at 1 mon-thurs. and 12 on friday.
Let me know if we have any classes!
Anonymous asked: hows sf state?! im planning on going there and i'd really like other peoples opinions! :D
In my opinion, it’s a pretty good college. You’ll hear a lot about SFSU being a commuter school, but it’s not all that bad. There’s a lot going on around school, people just suck on promoting the events. But, it may be a bit difficult to make friends unless you join clubs, frats/sororities, or live on campus. Get involved. The professors seem really great and passionate about teaching. Large, resourceful library. Beautiful campus landscape. Very diverse student body. The campus is quite smaller compared to other CSU campuses, but it’s useful when you’re walking to class. I’m glad campus isn’t too big. Signing up for classes can get very competitive unless you join programs that’ll give you early priority registration, but then again, the same goes out to other impacted schools. I’ve only been here for one semester, but so far, overall I’d give it an 8/10.
