What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the university! The community is very diverse and engaging. There's always something to do at SJSU and places that will help with academics. Everyone is usually helpful and welcoming. The only thing is that the school is since the school is open to everyone, you must be careful and be aware of your surroundings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great campus, easy to figure out. Almost all teachers are fair, enthusiastic and teach really well. There are always events going on to encourage peer interaction/collaboration. Game days were always a blast! Parking was a difficult process- the lots were regularly full and there were not many options for street parking. I was late to class a few times simply because it took 20 min to find parking.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State University is an exciting campus in downtown San Jose. The dining commons leave much to be desired as most things there are sweet and salty but is still edible. Luckily there is a lot of good food in the area and many grocery stores nearby so the dining commons isn’t the only option. Overall, I like San Jose State, my fellow students are serious and studious when they need to be and my instructors have been very helpful with assisting material understanding via intelligent conversation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers have been significant factors in shaping my personal growth as a student and my role in the workplace. However, there is a disconnect between departments that makes the the life of the student harder and more stressful than it needs to be. For example, the registrar's department has often lost important documents, such as graduation paperwork, which results in the student repeating a multi-faculty and department head signature process that can take up to a month to retrieve and process. Additionally, the current parking system is inefficient, as I have paid $200 for the semester for a parking permit, only to spend 30 min-1 hour on the chance at a parking space, plus added and unnecessary stress-- time that could be spent on studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State is a very spirit orientated school. You can see the spartan pride everywhere around the school. You can also see people interested in their academics and willing to help out their fellow classmates if they are in need of help. People here are also very friendly and willing to help if you need it. As well as the opportunities that are offered to the students is massive and I know me and other students are grateful for the massive amounts of opportunities that are offered by this college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SJSU has an amazing campus and not too big! The teachers are very intuitive and helpful when you need them. The technology used here is top notch, but every now and then you'll see one of those old projectors that you write on the transparencies. Highly recommended.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall experience at San Jose State has been well. There was a period when I struggled to meet new people and get myself involved, but once I feel like you get comfortable you will do fine. There are many clubs that always open their arms to you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Jose State is a great school academic wise but as far as having a great college experience, it is not the best. It is a commuter school located in the middle of San Jose which means that it is dirty and filled with transients. It would be a better school if there were more events going on to help students socialize and if it were less crowded so students can actually get the classes they need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A very diverse school that has a lot to offer. The school has many resources the assure academic success. The school is big on education but is also about sports. Games are a big deal. We are in the heart of Silicon Valley so many SJSU students get good internships which usually leads to job after graduation.
