This is a good local school for those living in the Greater San Jose Area. Many of my friends plan on going here. It offers many different majors, although it is known primarily for its Business, Engineering, Computer Science, Art, Music, and Dance programs. It is a solid school. I don't think you could go wrong at this school.

    san jose state lies in the heart of silicon valley and truly represents what life is like in the bay area with its very diverse student population and its connections to big employers. the school offers wide range of majors to choose from. but class registration can be a hassle if you are not on the priority list, making it hard to get into your preferred classes. one last note, it's a great school for international students.

    It isn't the best university around, but holds the best opportunities for stem majors. It doesn't have the best campus, but the students here are nice and open to talk. Even though it isn't a party school SJ can party you just need to be in a frat pr know someone to get you in.

    The campus is beautiful. The location is convenient for walks straight into downtown. And the curriculum will prepare you for what you want to do in the future.

    There are good teachers at the school. You really need to ask for help if you need it. The social life is not as great as other schools.
