San Francisco State University is a quality school, with a large number of resources. Tuition has been rising along with other expenses. Class sizes are extremely large, and difficult to get. There is great value in attending San Francisco State, however there isn't that great of feeling that there is a community. Since a majority of the students are commuters, there isn't that sense of school spirit presented. One of the better values in terms of education in the city, but not the best.
