4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: De Anza is a good school to go to if you want to go to community college and get out quickly. It is a quarter system so it is much faster than semester. Definitely keep up with all your classes and homework assignments, again it is a quarter systems so if you slack off, next thing you know you're falling behind possibly failing and stressing out trying to catch back up. Overall, De Anza is a nice school, so far I been lucky and got a few good and memorable professors. I would choose to go to De Anza again if I had to do it all over again because the environment is good there.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UCSD is really enjoyable as an undergrad school because you meet many people that are here to have fun yet are very focused on goals.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: They do the best they can to offer later evening classes to working students like myself.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It great because you can sort of work at your own time. But it is a quarter based college so there's a lot more to work on and read. The fact that it is an online class doesn't change the the workload.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: De Anza offers some amazing courses at university levels. But it lacks in having more secicions open in popular courses, for example chemistry.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Because it is a community college there's not a lot going on with internships. But, the alumni's from De Anza are really helpful. Some even have a group for science major on Facebook, where they share their transfer experience and help other students pick classes or advice in what classes to take for the specific university they want to transfer.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Academic experience is great, but only if you get the right professors. Even though De Anza is an amazing school it still has those professors/ instructors that are just in for the pay check.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Eventhough De Anza is a community college it has some of the best professor, who come from MIT and Harvard, and yet, care so much about their students and their success. The professors at De Anza are amazing at teaching and they truly care about their students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, De Anza's diversity in clubs, student body, and faculty make my community college experience a great one. I look forward to enrolling every new quarter because I'm always excited to make new friends in my classes through classmates and professors.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are great and passionate. However, class sizes are atrociously huge.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

De Anza professors are exceptional. Most are young, lively, and diverse, and love what they do. By the end of the quarter, students will know their subject, assuming they have put in the effort, and transfer to their university of choice.

The beauty of De Anza is its ability to deliver quality education at a low price. Apart from academics, however, there are a few oddities that leave one befuddled. The bureaucracy is frustrating at best, and the campus is certainly not the quintessential college campus students see in the movies. Also, it takes a quarter or two to become acclimated with the campus, its surprises, and proper coping mechanisms. In conclusion, even with all of the College's impediments, students keep coming back day after day, decade after decade, for the quality educators De Anza has to offer.
