What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
San Jose State University is a beautiful campus where a person could just sit and hang out with their friends or go downtown where all other students are studying or just talking. SJSU provides a variety of activities including sororities/fraternities, clubs, or just being involved in things on campus put on by other students or RAs. This school pushes you to work hard for what you desire along with has many resources on campus to go to such as the Living Learning Center or the Library where teachers and students provide help for all subjects.

The perfect medium between you and your future career, whether it be engineering, business, science, or humanities/arts related. We have a wide range of majors and minors, and amazing professors and teacher assistants that will guide you through your courses. The scenery isn't too bad; our school is currently going through some renovations, but if you keep walking through this campus, you'll see the variety of architecture, flora, squirrels, and students.
