It should come as no surprise Love Library is overwhelmingly ranked as the best place to study on campus. When a game of “Edward 40 Hands” down the hall proves too loud or the sorority girls in the house next door can’t stop shouting about their adoration for Robert Pattinson, Love Library is an oasis of academic calm and provides students with the serenity necessary to tackle those thorny RWS papers.

London (Best Study Abroad Destination)

In 1980, The Clash said London was calling, and for San Diego State students that calling is still heard and answered. The foggy town ranked as the best place to study abroad. There is no language barrier, the public transport is unmatched and the pubs are a warm reprieve from those rainy days and nights.

Cancún, a place where hedonism reigns supreme, is consistently touted as the Eden of Spring Break destinations. Students from across the U.S. arrive in droves to partake in unbridled debauchery. Those who have never experienced its unrestrained licentiousness are depriving themselves of an unrivaled Spring Break experience.

This year, the “Best Professor” category
finished with a surprise: a tie. Both winners are well-known, not just in their
departments but across campus, as
popular professors. Dr. Mike Stoddard, of the Political Science Department, has secured the honor twice before, but Dr. Joel Davis, of the School of Journalism and Media Studies, wins this year for the first time. Every student asked about his or her experience in their classes replied with “I love him!” and “He’s amazing!”

JMS (Best Major)

The next time you’re sitting in a JMS class, take a look to your left, then to your right and take mental pictures. Because the students parked next to you could be the next Matt Lauer, Dan Patrick or Katie Couric. Based on this year’s survey, SDSU students believe the JMS major has the ability to send its students straight to the top, sitting in cozy seats next to star reporters such as Lauer, Patrick and Couric.
