The school has a very diverse student population and I am proud to be a part of the campus. In terms of academics, the departments try their hardest to accommodate for all students and I believe that this school has an overall good learning environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first semester experience at San Jose Sate University has taught me a lot. First, the administration and other academic advisors can be a little difficult to reach because they are busy with many other students. Furthermore, the parking can be a big problem for commuters. Although many students pay for a pass, there still is never available parking spots. Adding on, there should be more activities for the general school population, besides clubs and other private organizations. Either way, I have had a very good first semester and defiantly was able to get involved with the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University is one of the most diverse, friendly, and caring universities there is. There are a lot of opportunities, not only academically, but also to become involved in the events that take place, without necessarily having to be in a frat or sorority. If you love having support, opportunities, and enjoy a nice view while walking to class, SJSU is the place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University has given me opportunities that I would not be able to get at any other school. I am an animation student and am constantly involved in events and screenings put on by the program. My peers are like family and we inspire each other daily. Although there is the occasional use of drugs and alcohol by students, I do not feel unsafe or pressured on campus. I have had many experiences with opportunities for learning and growth.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think this school is a great fit for me. San Jose State is located downtown area so many other options for weekends besides parties. The academic scene is fantanstic plenty of people who encourage other and are all for getting this degree! The campus is a nice size very walkable and if you live on campus it is even better. I love my suitemates and the college experience I have here will be one for the books.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great school, especially my program, Animation/Illustration. The professors and community are amazing. But there are significant downsides to the school, such as the high cost of living, generally bad food, and lack of maintenance for services such as laundry.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University is a greatly impacted school. The professors are excellent and care about their students a lot. They are available to meet outside of class to discuss topics in class that students may be struggling with. The resources available to students on campus are very helpful. Our campus offers a wide variety of resources that I did not know we had before coming here. Some of it includes the Writing Center, Print and Technology Center, Gender Equity Center, Accessible Education Center, and so much more! Located in the MLK Library, the Writing Center offers help for students to advance as writers. This resource specifically will help me when it comes to writing essays and research papers. Another service that will help me succeed in school is the Student Wellness Center. This service will come in handy if I am ever feeling stressed out or just need a place to relax. If I am going through a hard time, I am able to attend counseling and reflect on my thoughts. The classes that are offered here are very interesting. It is difficult to pick the classes you want if you have a late enrollment appointment. Orientation was very fun and I got to know a lot of people. I was very interested in becoming an Orientation Leader because I want to be make my college years as memorable as possible. I really enjoyed my orientation experience and had an amazing orientation leader. Being a leader for a group of new faces allows me to be open and outgoing in order to give them a sense of comfort here. Orientation is meant to be memorable, marking your first unforgettable encounter at your future home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's not too small, but not too big. It's located smacked right in downtown San Jose, easy access to nearby small shops, but hard to get to the bigger places. It's not dangerous, but it's not safe around school either. Walking downtown after sunset may seem like walking through Oakland, even with all the street lights, unwelcoming glares flash at you from different angles. School-wise, everything pretty much is within hands reach--well for me that is. A walk to class can be somewhere between five to fifteen minutes. The upperclassmen are pretty friendly and so are my classmates. Professors may be strict, but they really push you to do your very best. Makes me feel proud that I was accepted to this college of two century history, and to one of the most affordable animation majors in the country.
