What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a freshman at San Jose State University. There are a lot of opportunities to explore options in fields that you may enjoy. The students and faculty are also extremely helpful. With that being said the school spirit is always up at an all time high, which is something that is also great for a 4 year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion San Jose State University has its pros and cons. Academically its great because they have a variety of class sizes ranging from 20 people to 300. In addition, most teachers have office hours for help outside the classroom and the library on campus is also an excellent place to study. The campus also has a lot of resources and job opportunities nearby. Another great thing about San Jose State is that everything is close by the campus: post offices, grocery stores, and great restaurants to go out and eat with friends. Sororities and fraternities are big at San Jose State and there is almost always parties on the weekends. However, something that could improve is campus safety. There has been a lot of sexual assault at school lately.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State is a very clean and diverse campus. The professors are extremely passionate about the subjects they teach and always do the best they can to make sure their students are successful. The campus offers many dining options in the student union and is within walking distance from other places to eat off campus. The only drawback that comes with being so close the downtown area is that there are occasional crimes being committed in the area. The school does it's best to protect and alert students to these crimes every chance they get to make sure students are aware.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am happy to be enrolled at San Jose State. I experience a quality education, and have been introduced to so many people similar to me and whom I hold dear. We all share a passion for this institution and are proud to be Spartans! The campus is alive and there is never a dull evening. Most of all, this campus cares. This campus stands for social justice and the equality of all. I am beyond thrilled to spend another 3 years here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school, not to party hardy (mostly on the weekends Thursday-Saturday). On-campus housing is pretty decent all of Campus Village is quite nice, it's the older buildings that make you wonder if this is worth your money. Freshman who live on campus the first year are required to have a meal plan. The food is honestly really good, people just get ungrateful to have a place to eat when the food that they're eating (which is in good variety) is somewhat the same for 4 months. Academics are good, it really just depends on your teacher. As for extracurricular activities, there are a few things to do on and around campus but the benefit of SJSU is its distance from a lot of major bay area cities like San Francisco, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University is known to be some of the best public school comparing it to all other CSU. However, due to a huge amount of international students coming into San Jose State, the fight for classes are a long and drastic battle. Sexual assaults happen frequently on campus. Counselors and office staffs are almost always rude and not helpful. Overall if you just want a degree within 4 years or less, I would greatly recommend you to stay away from San Jose State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school! Every student is always kind and always interested to know more about you. Furthermore, we are in the center of huge and small companies hence if a student is looking to major in business this is a great school to start. There is also so many internships waiting for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school very well involved in what's happening in the world such as the presidential election that happened recently. SJSU students organized a protest that toke place downtown and later went to the freeway. We got our voices heard and expressed how we felt about our soon to be president. Also clubs at SJSU help raise money for those in need and donate food. As well as organize days for students to come study and eat tasteful food during finals. To help them stress less and conversate with others helping them grow their circle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The people here are very nice and it isn't difficult to make new friends even if it is just a small group. I am not in Greek Life and I have been able to befriend others so I'd say there isn't such a big emphasis on it maybe it's because the campus is so large. There is a lot to do since its in Downtown SJ although beware sometimes it can be a bit dangerous in downtown overall I don't see anything wrong with the school it's only my first year but the teachers I've been able to have are really great at their jobs and they consistently show effort so you actually feel like learning even if it's a subject you dislike.
