State properties are properties where the value is determined by the current state, not the "path" taken to reach the state. For internal energy, to find the change you just subtract initial(U) from final(U) without thinking about the path taken in between (for example, if U jumped up and down several times before reaching its new state). Since you don't care about the in between and only the final U, its a state property/function.
