4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Downtown San Jose has a cool atmosphere. The school's presence is becoming more known and will eventually have a college town vibe.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Perfect sunny days with no clouds. 9/10 days is sunny. Place looks warm and friendly, however streets can be dangerous at night.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love the atmposphere, everyone is really friendly

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: San Jose is a big city and has a lot to do in it. It would be a great place to live, but I'm not sure about the big city life as compared to the small town life.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love San Jose. The diversity here is awesome. I just wish public transportation was more prompt.
