When I first came to San Francisco from France, I was intimated and worried about going to a foreign country and a new University. My anxiety disappeared very quickly when I started my first classes at Golden Gate University! The whole enrolment team at GGU, as well as the professors made it so easy for me! I felt very supported and taken care of, which was really helpful. I chose this school because most of the classes were offered during the evening, which was easier for me in order to find an internship during the day, and enhance my professional experience. Also, I really appreciated being in small classes, with a maximum of 15/20 people, which helped me to improve my english and enhance my knowledge of the subject! Finally, the level of the different classes was challenging, which helped me to become better. I am graduating in Spring of this year, and I am pretty sad to leave this campus! During these past two years, I was not just a student, I was part of the Student Government Association for one year, and I also got the chance to be an Ambassador for GGU. What I will never forget about this university is that they don't only offer great classes, they trust you as a person, and help you to become more successful! The whole experience was amazing! show less

Golden Gate University with it's location in the financial district in the city means serious business. It is a no nonsense school that has a very reputable name among major companies in the bay area and beyond. Not only is the student population very diverse but the courses are very well planned and the professors that I have personally encountered are the Who's who of the professional world. What you get in turn - is learning the tricks of the trade from the very best! I have been very impressed by how approachable the faculty and staff at the University were! There are so many student clubs and activities happening all year round to give one a change from the academic life as well. All my classes consisted of about 15 or less people and that makes the learning experience more personal immersive. I am about to finish my Masters program at the University and I have received calls from numerous potential employers and I plan to start making a decision on my career too. Go for GGU if you are serious about making a promising career at a good price! show less
