De Anza College Reviews
UC De Anza as it's known at other 4 year colleges will give you the best education for a 2 year JC and better than some 4 year colleges. The parking, like all college campuses, is packed during peak hours. It's convenient location gives you plenty of access to nearby food and grocery stores. The campus buildings are decent with some gems like the renowned planetarium. There's grassy spots, trees and fountains sprinkled about to give you outdoor peace during warmer months and a great library to study in winter. The cafeteria food is affordable given the usual over priced offerings at other cafeteria campuses but is better in quality beyond comparison. Most of the teachers are amazing and will give you the opportunity to become a better student, invest in your future and successfully graduate in a program or transfer to a 4 year. I prefer this college to Foothill and West Valley, they have nothing on De Anza.
The campus is amazing, food tastes so good, internet is not good, but everyone else is friendly, and very diverse! A lot of clubs to join, and electives to choose from. Plus it's easier to transfer from here to a 4 year or university. The places where you can chill, read, or play games with your friends feel so good. I feel relaxed sitting on the benches near the white house replica as I listen to birds chirping around. I highly recommend this college! :)
I'd say De Anza College is great for its diversity in its students. However, not just ethnicity and age wise. When you enter De Anza community college you will meet many different people from different parts of the world, from different circumstances, and it's such an eye-opening community rich in everyone's cultures. Other pluses about this school are that the school runs on a quarter system so you'll be able to complete your education more quickly, there are many tutors that will help you in your education, the counselors are friendly and helpful, and the faculty will try to help you out the best they can. I would just say as negative commentary, there are some tutors that are not that helpful and some teachers, particularly teachers from the math and science department, that seem reluctant to help you learn the subject. Besides that, I think De Anza College is a wonderful selection for a community college.
