4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You have graduated High School but you have no clue what career suits you? Neither did I and foothill's best quality is being able to explore your interests more! I have taken classes in all the fields that appealed to me and after 4 changes in major over the past year, I have it figured out. I didn't feel like I was wasting my money or time because all those classes counted for GE. Foothill is a great choice for anyone without a set career or even someone with one. It is affordable and easy going for new comers!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've had a great experience with the professors of my classes. They are all very lively in class and in the subject they are teaching.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are many times offered for classes but they do fill up quickly.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The drive to school is really hard in the morning, especially when you are 8am classes.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My orientation to school was okay. They showed you around the school and guided you through registration, but that was about it.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I've only taken a hybrid class, so half of it is online. So far it is great and very manageable. The course load isn't too bad.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I don't typically communicate with students outside the classroom, but in the class they are very kind. The student body is diverse, we have a lot of minority groups here at school.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The classes are a lot cheaper than attending a 4 year school. The tuition seems manageable.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major is very popular at my school and my school offers a wide variety of classes geared towards my major.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: the class sizes are small and the teachers are very focused on the classes

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is a great support system. Many counselors and tutors are available. It is very easy to talk to teachers as well.

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.

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Senior

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 ;)

5 College Sophomore

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.

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.
