4 College Senior

Student Body: Most students are friendly, but there are not many long term friendships. We go by the quarter system so as soon as you start getting close to some people, you likely never see them again-- at least not in your class

3 College Senior

Student Body: Don't know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The student body is pretty straight forward and everyone just focuses on transferring.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Meh. Feels like a high school on steroids sometimes.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The individuals that form the student body come from various cultural backgrounds, so it is very diverse. Diversity is what makes everything at De Anza amazing! On top of that, everyone is friendly, determined, and career-oriented which pushes you to succeed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Need help integrating the shape of an amoeba? Or are you looking for someone to see a movie with on a Friday night? Look no further than your classmates. Networks are easily built in courses and on campus, be it a study group for the final or the formation of a new bowling team.

The campus is filled with international diversity, particularly from Asiatic regions. Since De Anza is in the heart of Silicon Valley, one will also have little difficulty in finding ethnic businesses and other ethnic accommodations. Most students step onto the campus as unattached individuals, looking for company and peers; therefore, the majority of students is approachable. Students will even share their umbrellas with strangers!

Typical Peers
It is quite unreasonable, if not completely irrational, to make an attempt at generalizing 30,000 students. Cliques exist but ostensibly; most students enter as rugged individualists. As a community college, De Anza offers no on-campus living accommodations, thus, eliminating a typical source of social groups. In other words, there is no pre-made path to a fundamental social life. Thankfully, students communicate, form study groups, help each other, and are inclusive, which greatly facilitates the formation of social bonds.
