    the campus is pretty small and really intimate. the people are pretty friendly they mostly stay about their business seeing as it is a community college.

    The diversity at San Jose State is nothing short of overwhelming in the best way possible. Students from all backgrounds, economic, social, religious, sexual orientation, race, and nationality form the student population. This diversity not only exists among students, but is recognized and celebrated by clubs, staff, and the associated student union. There are hundreds of clubs ranging from interests in sports, politics, race, gender, human rights, and activities. Living on campus is a wonderful and priceless experience at San Jose State. Community building activities are held frequently and are at no cost to students. And form a student who has lived on campus, they're fun. The dinning commons is a buffet style, which catalyzes the freshmen fifteen scare, but the free gym membership is a wonderful compliment. Altogether, students looking for an equal balance of diversity and fun should seriously look in to attending SJSU.
