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.

    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.

    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.
