Every year the campus conducts a confidential exit survey of graduating seniors. According to the exit survey, Environmental Studies students rate their major higher than the overall average for SF State on almost all questions. On half the questions the difference between ENVS majors and SFSU students in general was more than 10 percentage points. 84% of graduating ENVS majors strongly agreed or agreed that "Faculty members were genuinely interested in my academic success" and 81% strongly agreed or agreed that "Faculty members were available when needed."
