the top 10 reasons to choose sdsu – here’s 1-5


We’ve narrowed down the countless reasons you should choose SDSU to ten solid points that show how great it is to be an Aztec. Here are reasons 1-5.

1. I want hands-on experience.

Learning at SDSU happens as much outside of the classroom as it does in it. Political science students collect food for the homeless to learn about political fundraising while other programs, like the WebCompass internship, bring together students from multiple majors to learn skills and give back to the community.

2. I want the best programs at the best price.

At SDSU there is a program for every interest. Check out these video clips of current students who found the perfect fit in their major.

3. I want to see the world.

Study abroad is a big deal at SDSU. With the help of SDSU’s advisers you are sure to find a program that fits your major, desired destination, and budget. Whether it’s an alternative spring break, 6-week summer trip, or semester long experience, time abroad gives you a chance to see the world and gain an edge in your future job search.

4. I want to make things happen.

Students were the first to take action on the SDSU Green Love initiative, which has led to the creation of an annual Earth Day celebration and a weekly Farmer’s Market on campus. The Entrepreneur Management Center recently hosted SDSU’s first-ever Entrepreneur Day that gave students a chance to showcase their businesses on campus.

5. I want to continue a legacy.

There is a good reason that SDSU alumni are so active on campus: they know it’s always a great day to be an Aztec. Aztec connections run deep to local businesses and community leaders who get you involved with internships, job opportunities, and scholarships in every area of study. With all SDSU has to offer, it’s no wonder everyone wants to be an Aztec for life.

Check back early next week for reasons 6-10 to choose SDSU. Admitted students – don’t forget that your Intent to Enroll is due by May 1! You’re spot is waiting for you, what will you do with it?

Teaching Goes Hand-in-Hand with the Community


San Diego is a hot bed of many things – military, biotech, hospitality and, most recently, Green or CleanTech. San Diego State, as the region’s largest university, makes great efforts to prepare our students to participate in the local business community in meaningful ways, which means preparing them to make significant contributions in those industries that make San Diego go.

From the many veterans programs on campus, which serve San Diego’s diverse veteran and active-duty military population, to the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, which helps drive San Diego’s vibrant tourism industry, we work closely with leaders in particular industries or population segments to ensure our students are well prepared.

As such, we’re also preparing students in the area of Clean Technologies. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies is offering several programs to meet those needs now. Kim Brauer from the College of Extended Studies recently wrote this for Jobing.com’s blog:

Another place to look for sustainability solutions is right here in town. San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies has led the nation in offering professional certificates in the green industry to train people who want to enter this fast-growing field. They now offer three certificate programs – Green Building Construction, Green Energy Management, and Sustainable Practices.

Take a look at these programs if you’re interested in getting your foot in the door in these growing sectors, or if you’d like to take the lead in green initiatives now – whether that means implementing cost effective energy improvements in your office or increasing the market value of your home with green improvements.
