Try the Handshake app on your phone or access from your laptop.

Slam-Dunk Good Time

 

The SDSU men’s basketball team is off to its best start since a certain player named Kawhi Leonard was on campus, and the 2019-20 Aztecs are bringing the national spotlight to the university.

 

The team is in the heart of Mountain West Conference play, and it’s easy to show your support. Don’t worry about livestreaming or whether the game is on a network carried by your TV package. Student tickets are free, so come join the raucous scene at Viejas Arena in person – four home games in the next month!

 

Pull out your phone and go here to obtain your free tickets.

 


Be International

SDSU ranks fifth in the nation in the number of students who embark on study abroad experiences, and you can learn more about how to take part at the Study Abroad Fair on Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the North Library Walkway. International experiences range from a few weeks to a year, and financial aid is available for those facing financial challenges.

Follow our new group of Be International study abroad bloggers for the spring semester to see where other students are studying and traveling and what they think of their experiences.


SDSU World Campus

SDSU College of Extended Studies is now SDSU World Campus.

With most classes open to current SDSU students, the rebranded SDSU World Campus will provide innovative programs designed to meet the training and workforce needs of the many communities SDSU serves. There will be a greater emphasis placed on online courses, off-site programs and other nontraditional modalities. Any credits, degrees or certificates earned through SDSU World Campus will hold the same academic and professional weight as they did previously from the College of Extended Studies or any other San Diego State University college.
