De Anza College Reviews

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 is one of the most diverse colleges in the South Bay with various programs aimed at helping you transfer for a BA.
Lets begin with availability of classes. Since I started in 2016, I have had little to no difficulty scheduling classes or having to wait until the following quarter to schedule a class I need. I have only come across this problem in MATH or research courses. So as soon as you get your date to register, JUMP ON IT!! Also maintaining a good gpa, and avoiding dropping/failing classes will help you get an earlier date. Student body - The student body is very nice, and very diverse. De Anza has a lot to offer for students of all backgrounds, from club organizations to events surrounding your ethnic background. De Anza is very open and accepting to people regardless of age, ethnicity, race, and sexual orientation.
Lots of opportunities if you know where to look. Great, passionate teachers, diverse student population, and a progressive administration.

I was involved in two clubs and faculty was always open to supporting my personal ventures and offering advice because chances are they were also involved in club activities in their time.

Finding an advising time slot is a pain and the cafeteria food is overpriced and subpar, but there's a lot of local food spots near campus.

If you qualify for financial aid, you can get a subsidized parking pass but finding parking is hard if you have class during the day.
