What is your overall opinion of this school?

On a surface level, people give harsh academic comparisons between San Jose State University and UC and other public or private schools. SJSU's admissions rate and requirements may not be the most appealing or competitive, but the environment and networking it provides is something to be discovered only on campus. Before visiting San Jose State University, I was very relectant about attending only because of the name. However, once I got to know the school better, I learned about all the netowrking and internship opportunities the school provided. I wasn't only looking forwards to the opportunities, but the potential real-world or life skills the environment at this school would be able to teach.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my opinion of San Jose State University is that the campus is beautiful, I love to sit down on campus lawn and study or do homework. The weather is always changing but I love it. The professors here are great, very understanding and always try to be available to students. I am glad I picked San Jose, the school, greek life, atmosphere is what I love about this school and would recommend for other students to apply because of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending San Jose State University (SJSU) was one of the best decisions I've made. All of the professors I had were passionate about the subjects they taught and went above and beyond to help students succeed. SJSU offers amazing services and opportunities to students. For example, I was able to be a student clinician at SJSU's speech-pathology/audiology clinic, which provided me with invaluable hands-on experience in my field. Although I lived at home throughout my time at SJSU, I still felt like I was getting the "college experience" by attending fun on-campus events, such as Fire on the Fountain. I am proud to be an alumnus of SJSU and am grateful for the exceptional education I received at this university. Spartan Up!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I commute to school and don't live on campus, I enjoy the environment. I am not on campus enough to know everything that is going on or get to experience everything that's going on, but I do know how informative and active the students and staff are on campus. I plan and want to try on becoming more active on campus. I think this school is a great school. I have meet welcoming friends and professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University was a great school to attend. I met a lot of good friends. It also grew my network because many of the people I met ended up staying to work in Silicon Valley. There was always something to do, either on campus or in Downtown San Jose (which offers a ton of bars, lounges, and restaurants, at several price points). Teachers are available to help during office hours, just make sure you either get in line early or make an appointment. Engineering offers tech talks which host several Silicon Valley leaders as keynote speakers every month.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, i do think that there could be more improvements made by San Jose State University. There are some professors where I don't understand why they even have a job because it's a waste of time going to their class. I don't believe that the school budgets their money well. Students could be paying less in tuition if they would just not have some of the stupid events that they do have. You always hear the "free" events or items that the campus gives out, but it's all things that are coming out of my tuition and I'd prefer to have less tuition to be paid then the campus giving out "free" supplies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think San Jose state is a good school, however there are ways to make the school better. I feel like making sure each professor is more than qualified for their subject they are teaching and teaching them how to be more approachable for students. This is because I feel like some professors are very intimidating.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice school with a beautiful campus. The school is relatively small, but not small enough for everyone to know everyone. It is a very good school for biology and engineering and there are many professions here to help you. I also think the students are often very social on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is one of the cheapest universities where you can get a college education, besides going to a community college. The people are respectable, as long as you respect others as well. There are good professors and bad professors. It is a matter of choosing which ones to learn from and how you apply your circumstances to improve yourself. However many of the professors are considerably more brilliant than your first impression. Just be wary of second-hand smoke, because there are still some smokers even though it is a purportedly a smoke-free campus.
