Local Area: San Jose is a unique city unlike any other, i personally don't like it as i am more fond of San Francisco.

However peers of mine highly enjoy San Jose, there is plenty to do especially downtown for folks 21 and over.

Local Area: The local area is like any other. It's not too shabby and it's safe most of the time.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: We are located in the heart of downtown jose which means there's always a something to do. The area however is not the safest and I wouldn't recommend walking anywhere alone whether you are a guy or girl.
