My daughter has applied, but wonders if there is much campus life. Yes, the fabulous city is there ( I lived there post college), but will she be “on her own?” I hear it is more of a commuter school. I don’t want her feeling too lost.
It’s a commuter school. No way around it, tbh. There is no greek life, or parties etc etc. SFSU is more akin to a European university, than an American one. People go there to study, then move on.
Wondering the same for my daughter that would be coming OOS. It seems there’s a decent number who live on campus which might help but concerned that it really empties out on the weekends. From what I can tell looking at campus stats, roughly 10% of students are not CA residents but I can’t tell how many are truly local to the area.
