4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Helpful administration and a large library.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: While I can imagine it is not right for everybody, my personal experience at this school has been great. The majority of teachers are friendly, open and dedicated to their work. Class sizes are decent, especially if they are very specific subjects. As one of the better funded community colleges, foothill offers a wide range of coursework and n my experience tteachersa re more concerned with making sure you learn than giving you busy work

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am not aware of these programs at foothill, although i do know they exist to some extent

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Online classes are really hit and miss. Check rate my professor, see if you can find online specific ratings. Even if teachers are great in person, they can have no idea what they are doing online. DONT take a psychology class on line unless you want to learn nothing.

Student Body: Being in the SF bay area, the school is pretty diverse and draws people from all ethnicities in. We get a lot of international students, typically from various east Asian countries. Beyond ethnic diversity, political leaning is certainly towards the left, but I don't think you would have a hard time her as a conservative. Can't say about religious diversity, people don't talk much about their religion. Again being the the bay area, sexual diversity is present and LGBT couples are most often open and accepted. The school, as a community college, draws from plenty of economic backgrounds, and age is also pretty diverse. In some classes the mean age would be closer to 35-40

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: As a community college, tuition is pretty reasonable. Out of state it is significantly more expensive but still much more affordable than a 4 year school. I am not aware of the qaulity of financial aid on campus

3 College Senior

Career Services: I wouldn't know. As a 2 year school I don't know if foothill even has such things, If they do then I cant describe them

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The anthropology department is absolutely fantastic. The the profs are all easy going and understanding, but serious about teaching and will go out of their way to help you understand course content. They are very charismatic and friendly people, and it is not hard to get to know them outside of class, especially if you are involved in field schools or more specialized anthro classes. Workload is not too heavy typically, but if you pay attention and are engaged you will learn a great deal. They make it easy for you to get impressive experience in something specific that you are interested in that looks great on a academic applications. I especially recommend Mark Hylkema, Sam Connell, KAthyrn Shaefers, Kathryn Maurer, Dan Clearly and Neta Bar.

Academic Experience: Teachers, by and large, are fantastic. That being said, always consult rate my professor. Ive had some teachers who care very little, and can be rude and condescending especially in the math department. English teachers are another department that is hit or miss. Psychology professors, while friendly, have relatively simple classes that while great for an easy A are not in themselves very rewarding intellectually. Departments I can can strongly recommend are the Anthropology, Astronomy, Horticulture, and Ceramics. If you are willing to keep yourself engaged you can learn a lot, if not you cna drift by with decent grades, but not retain a lot.

Campus Resources: I wouldn't know much about athletics on campus, but I've heard no complaints from those who do PE. Outside of that student services are pretty extensive if you go look for them. For about any subject on campus there are places to get help, quiet places to work, planned parenthood on campus, etc. Library seems nice but haven't used it extensively. The campus itself is pretty beautiful and has nice views of the surrounding area since it is on a hill. Be sure to check out the Bamboo Garden at some point ;)

Overall Experience: This is an amazing school. I feel it is preparing me to further my education and to get me into the working field efficiently. I love Foothill.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I don't have any online courses, but for some classes I turn in assignments online which is always easy to do.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: I love the other students at Foothill. There is a very diverse group which is always nice. All of the students are quality people.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had to pay a lot to get enroll and I'm not exactly sure where to go to complete my fafsa but other than that it is going smooth.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I am not qualified to give a review for this. I am not aware of the alumni network, and job prospects.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Everything is made easy at Foothill. The class registration process is extremely easy to get through. There are plenty of after school studying programs to help in any class a student needs help in. All of the professors are extremely nice and helpful, and you get the vibe that they want each and every student to do the best they possibly can do.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've had a very good time in my classes. Foothill offers challenging courses that keep students interested and better the students in the long run. Each class gives an excellent and enticing course. They also do many fairs to offer students internship and job opportunities. Those fairs are very useful for those looking for work.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Foothill is a great place to get involved with extracurricular activities. The libraries offer a quite place to sit and collect yourself or to find a great book. The athletic centers are easy to find on campus. There is always something to do between classes or after you finish your days worth of classes.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Not very many of my credits transfered even thought the syllabuses were very similar.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nothing bad about the school. Good place to fulfill requirements to transfer, good class sizes and you can get help if needed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nothing bad, nothing great. It's alright. Good education, but I'm not particularly inspired by anything at the school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Counselors generally help you get the courses you need to transfer to the school of your choice. Usually just read out the assist website, and highlight a couple things.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Lots of chinese international students that all group together. Most people go to class, and go home immediately afterwards. Not much school spirit.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I haven't gotten any financial aid. I don't qualify for financial aid, but I definitely need help to pay for college.

College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Haven't used the career center yet. I know where it is, and how to find it though if I ever need it.
