Most Helpful Review for Foothill College

After going to De Anza College for a year and not enjoying myself at all, I decided to try Foothill College and it has been one of the greatest decisions I've made. Most of the teachers are professors and they are all very supportive, motivational, and knowledgable, and that makes a huge difference in the learning capabilities of students. I haven't had a disappointing experience yet with any of the instructors at Foothill and I don't think I will.

    Foothill College is a great school that provides a ton of resources - ranging from a free health center, free psychological services, a food bank, and amazing professors. Professors care about students' learning and always encourage them to ask question and to come in during office hours. Students are friendly and welcome to help out.

    The in-state tuition here should be the Community College price model for the entire United States. The out of state tuition fees politely remove all the joy right out of that.

    The campus is very nice and the classrooms are pretty new. The teachers here are a lot better at teaching their students compared to the other community colleges near by. It is easier to get into science classes here due to their larger classrooms and the number of classes that are offered each quarter.

    Foothill College is one of the best community colleges. Its beautiful campus, friendly students, and hard working and helpful teachers all make it a strong school. It is a great place to get general education classes out of the way in order to transfer to a four-year university.
