What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, San Jose is an overall good, clean school that has a lot of recourses in a prominent area that has a lot to offer. The teachers and staff are helpful and work for the students to make their college experience easier. It is barely my first year but I had a good first and lasting impression on the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose state university is a very nice diverse school. The staff and students are great and always ready to help. I enjoy spending time with my classmates and hanging out with them at school events. I participate in track which we all have a family bonding experience. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are plenty of things to do, and if you are living on campus it is very easy to meet people and make new friends. There are plenty of sports, but most of the money is spent on football even though the team is not the best. There are teachers who are very involved, but then there are teachers who are not really involved, but the good ones usually get picked pretty early in the class selection process.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just wrapped up my freshman year at San Jose State, and I found it to be really enjoyable. There's definitely something for everyone, from the tons of clubs that hold informational booths in our plaza, to the variety of on campus jobs that are available to students and San Jose residents. I've found that it doesn't take a lot to make this place feel like home, as long as you go out and get involved. I personally love the physical look and layout of the campus, everything is super accessible and it's nice to sit out on the many lawns, especially when it's sunny out! I'm pretty satisfied with my choice in attending SJSU and I think it's definitely a good school to consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State is commonly known as a "commuter school". Everyone will tell you that it's a mediocre school with little to no actual college experience offered to the students. That's not all true; San Jose State is mostly what you make of it. In my experience, you really have to appreciate the little things it has to offer. Sure, you're not attending UCLA or NYU. But there are still plenty of cute coffee shops nearby. The campus is teeming with diversity. Some of the professors are super awesome and you're surrounded by hardworking people. It still has its flaws; it's not the safest campus, especially if you're a girl. The parking is a mess. The food places have all been replaced by healthy imposter restaurants (we want Taco Bell!) The issue of homelessness is really prevalent with the amount of homeless people you run into on campus. And don't even get me started on the bathrooms *shudders*. If you're not housing on campus, then unless you really put yourself out there, you honestly won't feel like a college student. I never did unless I was in a club, at a concert, at a speaker event, you get the idea. Those who house on campus get the whole "broke college student with my own place living off of ramen noodles" vibe. Those who still live with their parents are more "on campus for an hour a week, just here for the coffee" whole thing going on. In short, San Jose State isn't terrible, but it can be mundane if you don't live on campus. It's just enough to get you a sufficient education and a good cup of coffee.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe this school is very underrated. I was on the fence about attending right out of high school and I am glad I followed through with it. Not only was the campus immaculate when I first stepped foot on it, they have continued to improve and grow in my time there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Of Course, San Jose State University needs some work but what educational institute perfect. Every school or department needs to grow with the times and create changes that will help students. The science department, specifically the chemistry department, at San Jose State is very much underrated. The faculty is exceptional and has a good list of publications. In the biochemistry side of the department, there are many young teachers with fresh approaches to the classroom. The labs are reasonably sized, so each student gets a good amount of hands-on time and practical experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a really nice school, and it has many things to offer. I am looking forward to going to this university. Beautiful campus. All the schools in the silicon valley and in the San Francisco area do not fail to impress me. I expected San Jose State University to be a good school, and I do not fail to make a clear statement that this is the school home for many students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose has many opportunities for students to get involved on and off campus. There are so many majors that even go into specifics so finding your major should not be that difficult. The biggest issue San Jose State has is housing. 3% of students reported to be homeless in 2018.
