Why SDSU?

"SDSU helped a lot with the transfer process. Once I got here, I found it easy to get involved because students are always reaching out to include you. It's a very different culture that feels like home. I also like how the professors are willing to work with you to help you achieve more."

Jennifer M.

SDSU Transfer Student

"After I transferred here, I found a sense of community–both on campus and in Brookings. It's really comfortable here. I really didn't understand 'Jack Fever' until I got here. It's a strong and instant connection you just can't describe."
