Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast food, not anything healthy.

5 College Student

Scholarships: Steven was extremely helpful and always available to answer a question.

College Student

Campus Dining: There are only vending machines.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I mean, if you want a burger or some other generic fast food, cool.
If you want to sit down at a Denny's or a Denny's look a like, cool.
Anything else, GOOD LUCK.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Really shitty conditions, the "Student Lounge" is always full of teenagers yelling and screaming and watching videos at full blast, blowing up their food in the 2, overused and undercleaned microwaves that the entire campus shares. There are 5 vending machines, one for ice cream, two for sodas, and two for candy and chips, those are THE ONLY food options on campus. We JUST started getting food trucks to roll by on a bi-daily basis.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: They have trouble running multiple programs, the network is super slow and the servers can't handle the capacity

5 College Sophomore

Parking: Literally steps from the door. Always a spot. must be 400+ parking spots and only 300 students and most commute, some bike, others walk.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I mean... c'mon, we're engineers and artists... the Audio guys all stick to themselves, and they're dicks to everyone else. The Artists and the Engineers generally tolerate each other only because they work on game and film projects together. Everyone pretty much sticks with their degree and whatever extra curricular activities they participate in, i.e. Magic club, board game club, pokemon club, Super Smash Bros club, Dungeons and Dragons club, Game Design Club, Game Art Club etc etc etc

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: You literally can not walk to a bar within a 5 mile radius. Also, it appears that 90% of the students are under 21.

College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have ANY athletic facilities, we're an engineering and art school. You do the math, or better yet, we have tutors.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's been great so far, except for that one time when the financial aid office underbudgeted my semester by over a thousand dollars... so yeah, i get to make that up in payments over the next semester... or two -__-

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hopefully It'll get better once we get a new Campus in Downtown San Jose.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There's enough there to accomodate the 300 students. Art supplies are lacking, computers are slightly older, but the quality of the teachers definitely makes up for it.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: For the careers that our students go into, this school is in THE prime location, and has THE definitive reccomendations from professors who have not only worked in, but also paved the way, in their respective fields.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is no Campus Housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't personally live there, but I've heard it's not so good.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Mediocre facilities, off the beaten path location (which is rumoured to change in a "couple" of years), mediocre tech, sub-par library, no cafeteria, However they excellent teachers that have been in the industry a while and thoroughly know what they're teaching. This is a bare bones college, not some fancy frou frou frat house party school. Everyone here is here to learn and the teachers are good at what they teach so you learn a lot in every class. Be Prepared.

Health & Safety: From what I can tell, if any incidents happen on campus they are handled by the Dean of Students. I've never had any problems or not felt safe.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am really happy with my program. My career goals is to be a concept artist for video games, and once I graduate, looking for a job in that field will be tough. But, I'm learning so much at this school and am looking forward to learning even more.
