Foothill College Reviews
Foothill has been the best community college to go to. When I was in high school I went to a neighboring community college to complete my high school and double up on college units, but once I transferred to Foothill, many more programs and even incredible fellow student connections have been found. A school is professor and course quality + networking with students (future co workers!), which Foothill really provides. I can't say enough about the college.
Foothill has been so helpful both to and for me. Their services and support have helped me through homelessness, food insecurity, and depression. The food pantry, psychological services, and the ASFC have all been incredible to me. I can hardly ask for a better school. Sadly, there are budget cuts and many classes being cancelled. Hopefully Foothill can find a way to keep many of the important classes running regularly.
The engineering department puts in a lot of effort in getting students to learn the material. There are a variety of STEM clubs on campus, like Women in STEM, Engineering Club, Chemistry Club, Computer Science Club, etc. to get people involved in student life.
I have been to Foothill College for two years now and I am glad to say I will be transferring. Foothill has a successful transfer rate and are very helpful with helping you get an education plan started, if you need tutoring and help with financial aid.
I came to Foothill because it is known to not be impacted like many other schools. I also heard that it is easier to get classes and transfer faster. Although, I would like to see more class options because due to budget cuts we are cutting classes many would enjoy taking.
Professors, campus, and students were great. Professors are enthusiastic and there to help. Campus is absolutely beautiful, sometimes I just find a spot to sit and think. Many facilities to help a student succeed in any course they're enrolled in. Students are quite respectful of the campus grounds, so it stays relatively clean. Also, I feel safe walking through the campus and parking lots early in the morning or late at night. However, you have to drive off campus for good food.
I just recently started attending Foothill College and I absolutely love it. The teachers and counselors are great and informative. The classes are easy to find and interesting. They have many classes and programs available at this school. Lastly, Los Altos Hills is a beautiful area! I transferred here to apply to one of the programs that this school offers!
It is an amazing college. First of all, It has a beautiful campus. It is surrounded by green hills and you feel great when you enter the campus and see the fascinating view. They have some good program and teachers are so experienced. If you are trying to transfer a 4- year university, it would be a good choice to start here. I am a stem major and the college has a great stem center, if you are having a problem with your classes, they helped you enormously. Besides that, they have other places that you can get help. I think Foothill college does everything to make you successful. The only problem for me is, the campus is not so active but I think it is normal since it is a community college. I definitely recommend this college, my experience so far is awesome.
Foothill is a beautiful and huge campus with a ton full of stairs. The teachers and staff are super helpful and make sure your college experience is the best. The teachers take their time to make sure you understand the curriculum. The staff such as the councilors make sure you get the help you need and the questions you have get answered.
I've been attending Foothill College for about 2 years and I really enjoy my overall experience there. My favorite part about this college is the STEM center that they offer 7 days a week. The tutors are very helpful and guided me through questions I have trouble with. I found this resource to be most helpful during finals week because I'm given a place to study at my own pace and get help when needed. The atmosphere at Foothill is also a lot more open and relaxing than the other community colleges I've visited which I really enjoy.
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.
The school is very beautiful. Lots of nature, landscapes, and modern classrooms. The teachers vary in quality and difficulty, but I found it very easy to find good teachers for every subject. The parking is a little difficult at times, but that is true for any college. It is much better than De Anza Community College in my opinion, which is the alternative community college to Foothill. I really enjoy my time here and I'm glad I chose this school to attend.
What I like about Foothill college is the diversity of races and also social backgrounds. It makes the school more real in that sense. Everyone there is so focused on their education, you can see it their eyes when you look amongst them. Seeing how it is such a diverse school, this helps with being able to learn on how to interact with different people from all over the world bringing us closer together as a school family.
I would like to see more computer science professors that have actual work experience not just teaching experience.
I am an international student. My first quarter was quite difficult, because I did no know how the US educational system works as well as mental barriers. I went to a few departments seeking help and in all of them I was treated with respect. Foothill college has been a wonderful bridge between my education and how I deal with challenges. I did right picking up Foothill College as my first college in the US.
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!
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.
Foothill College provides students a lot opportunities to transfer to good 4 years College. Generally, the professors are good. They are a little bit strict on students, but I know that is actually good for us.
First and foremost, the campus is amazing. It’s this combination of nature and modern schools that you’ll just love. Second , the food is a lot better than most schools food so if you your high school food was bad, don’t worry the foothill cafe won’t let you down. And lastly , I enjoy the liberty of choosing your schedule since most of us have jobs in the weekend or through out the week. So to have that flexibility is just another plus .
Great instructors, beautiful campus, strong curriculum, good resources. Commuter school so poor social life, dorm rating N/A because they do not offer housing. Extremely affordable.
