Best decision I've made is to come here before transferring to a university! The counselors aren't GREAT but there's some good ones. Overall, the professors are outstanding and super helpful especially during office hours. The coursework is rigorous most of the time but nothing too crazy -- no more than 1-2 hours of homework a day per class. Friendly staff and student body and very clean campus. It deserves its great reputation.

De Anza College is an excellent community college which provides all around help for students base on their need. Speaking as an Asian immigrant coming from a low income family, I never feel the lack of support from this community. For books, we have got the EOPS program which provide book funds for students up to $250 per every quarter; there are councilors checking on your academic progress, making sure that you are on track; there are excellent mental support and therapist who take care of the mental need of the students. The faculty members are loving and caring about students but not just their performance in class. I really do love this community and I am so thankful that I have got the opportunity to receive an education from this institution.
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.
