It's pretty great, except you have to take initiative to get involved in things. Seek out all of the opportunities you catch wind of, join clubs, search for on campus internships, etc. Don't expect these things to search for themselves! Single best piece of advice is to join student government, it will open up all sorts of additional opportunities. Plenty of ways to make friends although you likely will meet them in activities outside of class. And don't lose track of your transfer goals! Setting a plan in advance is the single best way of guaranteeing that you will only need to stay at Foothill for two years before transferring.

Although I initially disliked the seemingly endless stairs to get to the main campus, I began to appreciate the workout and interacting with incredibly warm faculty and peers as a transfer student. There are incredibly helpful resources and even flyers posted around campus to remind students of them. Overall, I would rate my experience as a student at Foothill College a 10/10!
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!
