Otay Books & Copies is a convenient bookstore located right across Southwestern College. They offer great prices on textbooks (both new and used), and also allow you to sell some of your books back at the end of the semester! The staff is really helpful and will help you find whatever you need.
Pauline Books & Media is one of the first places I go if I need any religious supplies. The workers there are really friendly and helpful. They carry so many things from children's books, bibles, and CDs to rosaries, pins, and movies! This is definitely worth checking out if you are in need of some religious material for yourself, or for someone else!
This is where I went to get my tires changed. They helped me out, and if you buy your tires there, you get free tire rotations! In fact, I got another flat tonight, so I have to go there tomorrow! It's a good thing I have the road hazard insurance! :) I also get free tire alignment!
The SDSU School of Nursing is NO JOKE! It's a tough program to get into, but it really is worth the struggle. It was a 6 semester program (now 5 semesters), and it takes a lot to get accepted. There is no wait list, but you are competing with everyone else applying for the same semester you are. Piece of advice: get good grades (A's) in your prerequisite courses or else your chances of getting into the program drop big time!
This is a BSN program, and yes, it's stressful, but you really get a lot out of it. The passing rate for an SDSU nursing student to pass the N-CLEX RN exam is pretty high. The teachers are really helpful, but some are harder than others. The program itself isn't easy, and it takes a lot of dedication, and hard work but it's ALL WORTH IT! :)
This is a great place to go bowling. The staff is friendly, they sell food (which is important!), they have a small arcade, and they have a few pool tables as well. This is also a great family place. They offer cosmic bowling, which is really fun, especially if you have a bunch of children with you! They also provide opportunities for fundraisers so ask around!
Scrubs-4-U is a pretty small store. They may not have as wide of a selection as other stores, but they do get occasional sales. It might be difficult to find parking, so you might have to make a few trips around the parking lot. The staff is friendly, and always willing to help you find the right set of scrubs!
Scrub Mart has a great selection of scrubs for everyone in the health care field. They have both printed and solid scrubs, all for a good price, except maybe the newer scrubs.
Smart Scrubs is located right in Grossmont Center. The prices may be on the higher end, but they do sell lab coats, which I find that not all stores sell. They have a big store, with a wide selection of scrubs, and the workers are really friendly!
Scrub Mart may be a small store, but they have a LARGE selection of scrubs, anywhere from plain, to printed. I prefer plain scrubs, so this is where I go. I usually get the Cherokee brand. They're prices are pretty good too! Sometimes they sell items for 9.99 a piece, or 13.99 a piece. Don't get me wrong though, new inventory can be as much as 20.00 a top/bottom! The workers are nice, and the dressing room is the bathroom! :)
Happy Bakery is known for their LECHON (roasted pig). Mmmmm..one of my favorite Filipino dishes! They can get pretty pricey, but a whole Lechon really is expensive! The workers are nice, and helpful as well.
