I started going to school at Evergreen Valley College, but it does not compare to Foothill because the students are much more active in extracurricular activities. Downtown Mountain View is only a 5-minute drive away and there is always something to do there. It is a small quiet city, and there is always a nice place to sit down and study. The school itself is very safe and I have never heard of anyone feeling unsafe there during the evening.
This college packs a punch for its small size. The teachers are incredible and passionate about teaching students. Many of the students work part time or full time, and the teachers are very understanding when it comes to helping students balance work and school. The campus is beautiful and the faculty are very helpful and approachable.
Foothill College is a great Junior College to spend your first years of college. Their academics among other things such as clubs, sports and overall atmosphere are outstanding. Going into college my first year was scary, but with the help of the instructors at Foothill I was able to make it! Not only are the teachers extremely helpful, but there are many other options of help and tutoring if needed. If you are looking for a Junior College that has great academics, athletics and transfer programs Foothill College is the one for you!
Foothill College was the first college I have ever attended and I loved it so much. The library has a bunch of resources that you can borrow free of charge, including supplies such as graphing calculators, which are expensive for most students. The school is on a hill and has a very nice view. Science professors here are the best. The school also offers free tutoring for STEM subjects. Tutors are mostly doctorate who are friendly and knowledgable.

I have always found that listening to my heart has led to high satisfaction. You should too. If going to school and taking classes does not feel right and working does, then take some time off from school to work. There is so much to experience in this world. There is really no right or wrong way to live it. Experience life for yourself and form your own opinions. And take people's opinions and suggestions any not the absolute and only way to live. Knowing this it is okay to start over, so start living!
The number of courses offered to complete general education via the internet. This allows me to continue working full time and still hae time to take a full load of college classes and work at them during my evenings and weekends.
Foothill College is in one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most beautiful locations - Los Altos Hills. Not only does Foothill College have an outstanding education, but it's beauty inspires me. On a typical San Francisco Bay Area morning, walking around the campus, in the crisp cool air, you will see fog laying atop the hills. This scerene, awesome view, fills me with inspiration.
Classmates are diverse in their origins and their dreams.
I really love Foothill. The campus is beautiful, the teachers I have had so far are amazing! My teachers I feel genuinely want to help me succeed, for that I am very grateful. Foothill has awesome clubs and programs. I am a part of our Community Ambassadors Program on campus. Foothill is an awesome school with awesome classes and I love the quarterly system!
This campus is very technologically advanced and outfitted with apple equipement. It also has the largest offering of online courses in the area to complete a degree via internet. This is a very green school environment.
Anyone. This college is for everyone, they accomodate to everyone. As long as someone has the passion and motivation to attend school and do well Foothill College will be there to help.
This school is not meant for people looking to party and slack off. Both the instructors and students are serious about the quality of education. However, we know how to have a good time. There are a variety of campus events and clubs. Everyone is bound to find a place to fit in here.
I have strong, positive relationships with my peers and mentors which is something that I enjoy talking about with my friends. I also enjoy telling them about all the interesting and difficult experiences I'm able to overcome. I work hard to achieve success and I think it shows in my day to day actions. So when I talk to people who are not there to share the experience, I tend to talk about my "small achievements" to let them know what's going on in my life.
I have had a great experience there. Funding for the school gets tight so some services that would be beneficial for students, such as gym access, has some restrictions.
