    The biology program(I'm a human bio pre med student) is pretty good. However I am a freshmen so we'll see when i move up into higher classes.

    Get involved! Thats how you make friends and you feel like you have a purpose other than being a student. Take pictures! Life only gets faster as you get older so make the most of it and capture is on film. Study! It truly helps when you have classes that are only based on test scores.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I recommend going on a campus tour and get to know at least one of the students there. I learned about my tour guide, Mara, and she was very eager to show us what makes the Jackrabbits such a proud University. The students here are diverse and fun to be with, and are very competitive with sports. They're also very competent in discoveries of meats in the Animal Science programs, and was the first to invent Cookies 'n Cream ice cream!!! Bet you didn't know that, did you? Try SDSU's ice cream during a campus visit and be amazed!

    Great atmosphere which gives you the college life but without the big city or too-small town feel. Many employment and off-campus apartments available. Classes have a good teacher/student ratio.
