  • I am a current student here

    I love San Diego State and i am enjoying it because I'm involved on campus. It is always a good idea to either be very outgoing and/or be involved on campus but it does not have to be something boring it can be something that you are interested in. There is always something to do on campus you just have to look for it.

    There's always lots of fun things to do here and they encourage getting involved with the school from day one. I suggest checking out all the clubs before you commit to one because there are a large variety of people to meet.

    I've had many family members and friends who have gone to this school (including my parents and sister) and have collected wonderful memories and great friendships through this school. It's also in such a great and exciting town with so much to do!
