There is no parking on campus, and the parking lots around the school are very expensive. I wouldn't trust leaving my car outside a parking garage; especially at night.

The Bart is on the same street as the school and it comes every 3 minutes. It is very cheap to ride and very fast as it is an underground train, so you avoid all traffic during rush hour.

Health & Safety:
I haven't noticed any crimes or anyone getting in trouble on campus. I feel safe walking around.

I am currently applying for FAFSA, and that is a pain.
College Junior 2013-11-07T18:51:35Z
I keep to myself most of the time, so I haven't encountered any strict policies that keep me from my schoolwork.

Getting into my program was incredibly easy. The admissions counselor was incredibly helpful and kept me updated and walked me through every step of the process. I applied as a transfer student and the counselor told me everything I needed to submit (which wasn't much, just unofficial transcripts) in order for them to asses what courses I still need to take. If you have a GPA of 3.0 or higher it is very easy to get accepted. They also give a 35% discount on tuition if you are a first generation college student, which is fantastic.

I haven't looked into any internships at this university yet. I plan on having one closer to my graduating year here.

I don't think there are sororities or fraternities at this university
College Junior 2013-11-07T18:43:05Z
The library is very big with a vast collection of books. It is a very relaxing environment to work on homework.

I am not into any sports, but I don't think that this university offers any.
College Junior 2013-11-07T18:39:12Z
There are many fast food and take-out restaurants that are relatively cheap.

The city is very dirty and noisy, with a very high homeless population. The Yerba Buena park is a couple blocks away from the university and it's a great place to relax. There are plenty of cafes and dining options in close proximity to the school.

I am not part of the off-campus housing.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone is friendly and outgoing. A great majority of the student population are adults and are respectful and hard working.
College Junior 2013-11-07T18:31:13Z
I don't see any usage of drugs and alcohol on campus.

GGU is great and has lots to offer
College Senior 2013-09-29T17:24:05Z
GGU is a great school and has lots to choose from.
College Senior 2013-09-29T17:22:11Z
GGU has a lot of financial aid and I have received scholarships that I didn't even have to apply for.

The L.A. campus is very small. Just a few classes. No campus life.

I’m at Golden Gate University, LA campus pursing my masters in Taxation. I love the teachers and the format of the class. The knowledge of the teachers is top notch. They either are in the field or have many years of experience.

The daytime cohort program students are offered many more opportunities for networking and career development. The evening students are not even told about the available programs and are not invited to participate. Despite the fact that tuition is the same for both the day and evening programs, day time students are clearly given preferential treatment and opportunities to network and meet intimately with recruiters. Evening students must jump through hoops to participate in the same programs, if they are even aware of them. It is unlikely that the evening students know about the programs, because the school does an incredibly good job of hiding it from them. It really truly feels as though the school deliberately hides these programs from their evening students. Speaking with evening students and learning of their complete ignorance or anger and frustration proves this point very poignantly.

San Francisco has some of the country's best restaurants, but alas, they are not within a stone's throw of the school. Because the school is in the Financial District, nearby restaurants tend to be mediocre and overpriced. Quick eats are much better, but still a touch pricey.

There is no nightlife. The school is but one and a half buildings. There is no on-campus housing. Most students are graduate students.

The population is diverse, but predominantly Asian. More than 75% of the evening students are Asian, and of those, predominantly Chinese foreign students. The daytime cohort students represent a more diverse population with less international students, but a diversity reflective of the San Francisco Bay Area.

San Francisco is a beautiful city with no shortage of things to do. Public transportation provides access to all of the city's attractions, including Golden Gate Park, MoMA, the Haight, or whatever suits your fancy. The city is well known for its fantastic restaurants, only one of two cities in America where restaurants are Michelin rated. In fact, I love this city so much, I now call it home!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
