The campus is beautiful. The teachers want to be there and love what they do. Classes are offered online and hybrid style.
Alicia from San Francisco, CA
I love foothill because the campus is beautiful and when you don't have time to workout climbing stairs and walking hills helps a lot. All my teachers have office hours to help me and my classmates are all friendly. I love the food here, it's just the best and the classes are challenging but rewarding.
