You have to be smart for starters. San Diego has become one of the harder CSU's to get into and every year it gets harder. You have to be outgoing because not only are we a smart school, but we are also a party school !

An Aztec never takes a beautiful, sunny day for granted. Whether it means going to La Jolla beach or playing sports with friends on the soccer field, a sunny day is an opportunity you never pass on. Just because San Diego is known for its beautiful beach weather does not mean a beautiful day should ever go to waste.

An Aztec also must be up for anything! SDSU always offers various student activities to meet new friends and to get the confidence to stand up and laugh at yourself for doing silly things.

The typical SDSU student is fearlessly social. They strike up conversations in line (and, as a college student, there are lots of good lines for striking up conversations). They ask strangers at The Living Room Cafe if they can share their table and outlet. They play volleyball with you at the beach. Being Southern Californian, being San Diegan, means being laid back, which, academically, translates to being open to new experiences.

San Diego State is a beautiful campus. It begins with me riding my bicycle to my early classes. After class I grab a bite to eat in the dining hall, where I see new and friendly faces and nobody ever sits alone because people invite you to sit with them. Then I go to soccer practice where I work hard and represent my school. To close the day, I go back to the dorms where I study with my roommates and enjoy dinner and have fun with them.

The typical person at SDSU is hard-working, dedicated, and friendly. The type of person that should attend SDSU has to be a people person. We have 30,000 students at our school, so making friends and getting to know new people can be a lot of fun as well as beneficial. They also have to be willing to break out of their shell or comfort zone, and not be afraid of diversity. Walking on campus you will see an abundance of different people from different races, colors, styles, shapes, sizes and ages. There are also tons of clubs and activities to join and get in to, and getting out there and trying new things can really lead to new opportunities. If you are dedicated and a hard worker you should also attend SDSU. Every year it is harder and harder to get accepted, but if one strives to do their best and keep their grades up it will be a piece of cake. The classes aren't necessarily easy, but having a good work ethic and drive to succeed will be very beneficial

A typical day at state looks like the rush hour just like the streets of New York city. Everyone is trying to get grab some lunch on the go before class, and often bumping into friends or acquaintances during the day. It can be a bit chaotic sometimes. San Diego State is definitely a school for a person who can adapt and be able to focus to the grab and go environment.

A typical day at SDSU starts with waking up and going to class. You grab coffee at Starbucks or BCB before your next one, then grab lunch and possibly go to the library to study. If it's an easy day where you don't have class, students go to the pool to relax. The average student is fit, eats healthy, is extremely outgoing and friendly, and loves going on adventures.
