Foothill College Reviews
Review Foothill College
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 opened a lot of doors for me and made possible for me to follow my dreams. Being part of the Honors program at Foothill College gave me the opportunity to participate in the UCLA TAP which raises my chances of being admitted up to 97% just by maintaining a 3.3GPA, and I'm transferring with a 4.0GPA!
Thank you Foothill College!

I love most of the professors, they help you prepare for a four year university. They are very challenging and fair at grading. The environment is green and homey. The library is a great resource and has many places to study-it was my second home. The counselors are awesome and very knowledgeable. The transfer center is very helpful and the staff there are friendly and easy going. The disability resource center are very organized, they really care about their students, they easy to talk to, they help us with our accommodations, and do a lot more for us. The veterans office are a group of people who care and is a safe and positive environment.
