My experience at De Anza has been nothing but a great one. I have felt the support and love from my peers as well as my instructors. Everyone is always willing to help and the campus life, although it being a community college, is enjoyable! I attended De Anza straight from high school as a scared freshman, and I have never one doubted my choice. There is so much extra help on campus for those who find themselves struggling academically or simply just need a place to study. For example, everyday after my Math 10 (statistics) class, I'd go into the math tutoring center where I could have a safe space to do homework and ask any questions if needed. All of my instructors up to this point have also been very understanding and inspiring. They always encourage students to ask questions and attend their office hours where they provide additional support. De Anza College has been nothing but good to me! :)

Online learning has been great so far despite the current circumstances. Professors are understanding and flexible, and will help you if you need it. De Anza also offers two types of classes: ones with scheduled classes and ones with independent study, so you can pick a professor and a class with your preferred learning style. Professors have also been pretty knowledgeable with online learning technology, including ones that they've decided to use on their own, other than zoom or canvas. De Anza has also waived dropping penalties due to current circumstances, which I think is very flexible and forgiving. I am unaware whether prices per class have been lowered, however.
De Anza College has been a great experience for me. From playing intercollegiate sports to participating in biology lab experiments, everything has been a blast. I've had some really amazing professors throughout my time at De Anza, my favorite coming from the biology department specifically. The professors are here for you and they want you to succeed and excel. Athletic events are competitive and never seem to have a dull moment either, including football, basketball, and volleyball games to name a few. The cafeteria food choices are good as well, containing a wide variety of choices, such as Mexican food, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, etc.... I've met and became friends with many different classmates and everyone is super helpful and willing to work together. Overall, De Anza is a great choice for education.
