I enjoy the business, management information system program at San Jose State. Through my courses, I am gaining hands-on experience to help me in my career. I love how the college of business also has a few organization to choose from in which I was able to practice both my soft and hard skills. The Career Center on campus is also a very resourceful tool while preparing for my future.

I like the freedom and the environment is friendly. As a freshman, I feel welcome to the school. There are events available to connect to peers and to get to know others. The school is very diverse and supportive of everyone. It has many choices for classes, clubs, and athletics. What would need to be improved is some of the connections. For clubs, I was unable to find out more information about them or how to join ones that I am interested in, besides emailing the president, which did not work. Overall San Jose State is a great school not only for athletics and academics but to connect to a community.

This is my first year in san jose state university, but it seem like it is a good school that I went. The major have a good program and I wish I could get in. The campus is semi diversity because most are asian. The campus is next to san jose downtown, which is very local. The Professors are nice and they will help you when you ask them. The dorm is a good place to live in and the new dorm just finish this month.
