3 College Junior

Academics: It's okay. You know, like the rating system. It's okay.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Fairly decent place. Had some minor academic conflicts and many things happen on campus during my two semesters here at this school. Lots of incidents happened that kind of deter myself from feeling one hundred percent safe

3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are generally very knowledgeable in their field, but they can also get really behind on the syllabus. Class cuts are not making their lives any easier. Many classes are impacted, if you're an underclassman you will probably be waitlisted. Thus leading to you not graduating on time.

3 College Junior

Academics: Impacted program. Hard to get classes and the classes are pretty hard also.

3 College Junior

Academics: There are some excellent professors and programs here at SJSU. However, the registration process is terrible. Unless you are a junior or senior you will have a hard time trying to add classes you need.
