60 YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE: Seasons Change
60 YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Seasons Change

The advent of September brings gentle changes to California. The nights become a little cooler; the days seem a little shorter. Even as we work our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, Mother Nature remains right on schedule. Some say the Golden State doesn't experience seasons, but true Californians know better. The seasons are just more subtle. Already, autumn leaves are beginning their annual transformation into bright bursts of red, yellow and orange. Here's a look at our campuses throughout the years showing off the wonders of nature.​

While much of the country is pulling out its sweaters come fall, San Francisco starts getting its warmest weather of the year. That's why September through November is when you're most likely to see SFSU students sunning on the Quad. For weather that feels truly autumnal, try visiting around the beginning of "winter".
