Foothill is a really awesome college. Getting involved on campus has definitely made my experience all the more meaningful. I would advise students to take advantage of the resources that the campus has to offer early, for it makes the process towards earning a degree, certificate, or transferring much more intuitive. I also advise students to do everything they can to socialize with others. The social environment at Foothill is fair, but there's always room for improvement!

Although I have only attended Foothill College for one quarter, I must applaud the college for having an easily approachable administration. Unlike many other colleges in the Bay Area, Foothill does not suffer from the same degree of overpopulation and impaction. As a result, the administration can give the moderately-sized student body more attention because there aren't as many students requiring assistance. In my experience, the counseling department does a great job at acclimating new students to the college atmosphere. In particular, students who plan to transfer to a 4-year university can rely on the counseling department to lead them in the right direction by creating an educational plan that ensures they meet the transfer requirements in a timely manner. A few gripes I have with Foothill include the fact that the college is a bit secluded so there isn't much to do in the area and that even with a small student body, the parking lots can fill up quite quickly.
Foothill has been my college for my first two years in college before transferring. I graduated in Biochemistry at UC Davis and later decided to take a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering. Foothill is where I chose to complete my missing undergraduate Engineering courses. The classes here are often not full, so much less frustration to register for classes compared to other campuses I have been to. Classes are also generally easier. Plus, the scene here is beautiful; the campus is super nice and clean - it is quite all the time; and the staff, especially the STEM center, is very helpful. They want you to succeed. This is the place to go.
