  • Best service ever and great food! The guy working behind the counter literally made my day with his upbeat and positive energy. Gave me free samples of everything (I didn't even have to ask). Food itself was great, and it's hard to go wrong when you customize everything, and you've had the samples so you know you'll like it. Will definitely come back here again!
  • The entire university is so like a big prison. As well as international students here. They like grouping a lot. So, if you are not any of them. You'd better to go back home, just like me.
  • No kidding, when you breath fresh air and comes into the building, it is depressing!! So much construction going on inside building, extremely noisy, and the smell gonna kill you!! STRONGLY SUGGEST NOT GIVE A CENT TO THIS PLACE, even the president Andrew Petter, his own son does not go to this place.
  • I can't comment on the curriculum, professors or tuition. I spent 3 days at SFU for my son's basketball tournament. The gyms were small and courts spilled over into each other. There a no bleachers or sitting area for parents, we sat on chairs against a wall with our feet in the basketball court. Bathrooms we disgusting, grungy and smelly. Campus was old, unkept and little to no signage, it took us 20min to find a Starbucks that was 200ft away. I'm disappointed that a university of this status doesn't invest money in the upkeep, with some renovations and basic maintenance.
  • (1-star because it wouldn't let me leave the ranking blank) Joke of a school. Professors don't care. TA's care less. They both only work for paycheques and couldn't care less about the students. Semester evaluations don't amount to anything. No student life. Sketchy student society. Depressing atmosphere. I severely regret spending any of my money to attend SFU.
