5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would come to these schools a thousand times over. I'm convinced they are the best city colleges in the bay area and think everyone should see if it's right for them.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: De Anza has a nice system set up, but Foothill's is a bit old fashioned and can be troublesome to get used to

College Senior

Career Services: This is a community college, but they do a lot to help you transfer by holding transfer fairs with representatives from most schools

4 College Senior

Facilities: I love the rural areas such as the bamboo garden, and numerous fountains found on campus. Most of the campus is grass, making it a lovely place to study

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: In general, there are a lot of things available to you as a student in health services, the cafeteria, and so on. It is a beautiful campus as well.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The wifi isn't steady, and can't really be counted on.

4 College Senior

Student Body: People are nice, friendly, and eager to grow in the profession they love.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are a lot of options, and the teachers are always willing to work around the things that come up and prevent you from coming in for things

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Foothill and De Anza provide a learning environment with instructors who are well worth the money. They are brilliant, and the smaller class sizes mean they have time to get back to your emails, and get to know you personally. The sister school program is also extremely door opening, as students get the opportunity to peruse courses from both campuses and get an even bigger choice of classes. Both campuses are beautiful, and have professors who definitely know what they are doing, and are experts at it.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers are all over qualified. As are the advisors, I would not be able to graduate in time without my counsellor. The teachers often teach at other state or UC schools, making them a commodity in the community college system

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't ever seem to qualify for anything, although I have great need. The process of signing up is easy, and I know there is money out there but I never see any of it.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors are very knowledgable in their subject. They have great interest in it too. Most of them are fun and engaging.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is truly the best. I paid around $50 for 5 classes (One is a PE) this quarter. On top of that i receive $1800 for financial aid grants. I use this for Gas, food, textbooks, etc. Definitely helps my educational process!

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Its simple. They tell you to go on a website and do simple but interesting work online. Nothing out of the ordinary.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Its a community college. Not much to expect. Most people come and go. However if YOU are outgoing, people are friendly and you can make friends. But you have to be the one doing all the work. Its uncommon for people to go up to you etc. You can find all types of people here, foreigners, geeks, nerds, party people, normal people, etc. A lot of attractive girls around.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Its unique because Foothill ranked very high among Community Colleges in California. It is said transfer rates are higher which makes it slightly easier to transfer to a University.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its a community college what do you expect? Not much..

3 College Freshman

Career Services: They have alot of counselors to choose from but gets packed before a new quarter starts. This making scheduling for a counselor very difficult and you probably wont see one for two or more weeks. There is a transfer center with limited schools, mostly californian schools. There is no career center that i know of. This is Foothill

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They make the process like a full time job which is hard to do when you work and go to school full time. The student already has enough to worry about. That's why they're there.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The only major thing I would change would be to add more events to bring unity to the school. We don't get to live on campus so we need other ways to get that.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I recommend online classes but wish there were more online options.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I like the school a lot and am glad I ended up there after previously looking down on community colleges

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: I haven't had any problems with this.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I'd like to see more campus activities.

College Senior

Career Services: None of these apply to me.
