What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although it is a community college, you can find tons of opportunities at De Anza College compared to others. For one, it is located in a largely populated area so there are lots of stores and restaurants that you could find a part-time job at or just a place to eat. It is also located in the Bay Area, so you could likely find an internship you are interested in since there are many big tech companies nearby. My accounting teacher that I had for three quarters often told us about how many of his students were able to work at Apple since it is located only about 10 minutes from campus. On top of the great job offerings, one of the best things about the college is that it is super cheap compared to private colleges. It is also a top community college in transfer, so you could save lots of money by going here and then transferring to the college of your choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

De Anza College being a community college there are no sororities or frats and there are no dorms. My first year wasn't too bad, De Anza is one of the top transfer schools in the country I would say that our academics are top-notch, if you struggle with academics I suggest using things like rate my professor so you can get in a class that will work for you. The teachers that I have had are very understanding and can help you if you need help. They want you to transfer to a 4 year just as much as you do. Athletically, our teams are pretty strong. As long as you have the grades to match you are guaranteed a scholarship to play at a 4 year. There are stores all around the school and places to eat. The only real issue that this school has is there is not enough parking for students, and the rate that they give students tickets is ridiculous. Other than that, if you are looking for a community college check out De Anza.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

De Anza College is a safe and calm school with many students from around the world. Many of the professors are very well qualified and genuinely want to teach. Students are hard working and like working together. However some professors are the complete opposite, and do not want to teach, although they tend to be an exception rather than the norm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a really good school, but I just don’t really have friends so it makes the “college life” a little lonely Some professors aren’t that good at teaching. They’re either very boring or make you learn straight from the book and just ramble in class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

De Anza is a great school for the commuting student and prepares you well for transfer to a 4 year university. The De Anza-Foothill College is known in the area for being one of the best community colleges and many alumni work in the area(big money in the silicon valley) so clearly students are doing something right. There is little sense of community though. Very few students try to meet up outside of class to study or anything like that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus is very easy to navigate. It has many friendly students who will come up to you with surveys, voting polls, or even to just as you a question. I have always felt comfortable here. Possibly because I am a Cupertino native who has seen many students from my high school attend here. We are all focused on one thing and one thing only: transferring. I have noticed students are very well educated in the process and obsess over IGETC and TAG programs that help students transfer. Overall this college has prepared me for the upper division University courses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is great! There are lots of opportunities that are posted on the walls and everywhere around the school. I was able to know scholarships and jobs that might help me financially in the future. They are very well-updated on their events and the students seem to be hardworking and caring. I enjoy the diversity we have here. I was able to learn a lot of different cultures and make good friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

De Anza is a great school. Campus life is very active, there are always events happening in the quad, there are many clubs to join, and there are many students organizing groups. The professors all care about everyone's education and many will set up particular study groups for their classes. De Anza also has many facilities such as a medical office, psychologists, food pantries, cafe, and much more. There are also many meetings with special guests, galleries for art or projects, and workshops dedicated to understand more about certain topics. Another plus for De Anza would be that most of the classes meet transferable credits.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first year in De Anza College and its been great so far. The environment to study is nice and a various of clubs to join for students. One thing I would like to suggest is that the food in the cafeteria isn't that good. I would highly recommend for the school to improve their food for future students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

De Anza College is a fantastic school with amazing teachers and classes offered. The only downside to the school is parking but activities are constantly happening on campus or nearby. I have had some of the best teachers at this college who are passionate about their subject, conveying the material while teaching you to become a better student with successful habits. I transferred to San Jose State and felt I was more than prepared for the transition and have had multiple friends transfer to other State, UC schools such as Davis and Berkeley and some go on to privates. De Anza is called UC De Anza for a reason, it is one of the best schools for academics and preparing you for a two year degree or to pursue higher education.
