For Students

Keep Learning: Student Planning Guide

SF State students are sometimes called to demonstrate your resiliency by adapting and responding to a number of unexpected events. Some events are merely disruptive, such as the rolling blackouts to counteract increased energy consumption, or a nation-wide outage of the Zoom web conferencing service on the first day of instruction. Some events are catastrophic, such as the social and economic disparities endured by our most vulnerable populations, compounded by the global health crisis, or the local forest fires which have displaced faculty, staff and students, and created hazardous breathing conditions.
