The professors here are amazing! They have no problem getting to know you one-on-one and helping you with your career goals. They want everyone to succeed and if they see that you're a passionate student, they'll help you make connections with people in you're desired field. I'm pregnant and they are determined to have me graduate.

I am having the best experience in SJC's department of English. The professors work to give us the best experience possible, and they go out of their way to challenge us and bring us new opportunities. Because the department is small (as most at SJC are) we English majors are very close and often get one-on-one attention from faculty. Sometimes, they even use our input when they schedule classes and select reading material. Even the strangest requests aren't out of the question. For example, a friend and I are doing an independent study of Harry Potter next semester with a professor who has worked very hard to create an intriguing and challenging course for us. The course began as a joke, but I'm very much looking forward to it, and I'm thankful because I'm sure this wouldn't be possible anywhere else.
The athletic teams at our school bring in most of the students. However, those who do not participate in athletics tend to not view them as important. There is hardly ever a student section at any of the games which makes it hard to be excited for the game. Also, our athletic complexes are very poor. The football field is worse than my high schools and there are no restrooms out their besides porta potties, which is gross. The track is also very rundown and not at a college level. Overall, the facilities are very poor and make the school look rundown.
