San Jose City College Reviews
San Jose City College is an institution with measurable pros and cons. To succeed, one needs to advocate for themselves regularly. With the except of the transfer counselor, most general counselors give different advice and make the process confusing for students. Despite this, classes are very easy to get into. There is rarely a waitlist and classes oftentimes start with 40 students and end with 20 or less. This makes it easy to get attention and develop relationships with the professors. The professors at City are awesome. They care about their students' success. The academics aren't always challenging; online classes are almost a joke. As for the student body, there is depth diversity of age, race, religion, etc. There are barely any clubs and getting involved is challenging. Going to SJCC is not your typical college experience, but you can learn a lot about yourself and the community around you here.
San Jose City College is a prime and promising institution in terms of academics and integrating the rise of technology and artificial intelligence into it's overall theme and curriculum. In particular, I'd like to point out the award-winning college newspaper, City College Times, is an innovative, interactive print and digital paper that has a great staff and advisor. However, there are some things SJCC could improve upon, such as their financial aid office. There are always long wait durations, no phone services, and the staff at the front desk is unwelcoming to most inquiries regarding the financial aid process. Also there are no dorms on campus and taking into consideration the vast abundance of international students who study here, this should really be a priority. Other than that, San Jose City College is a promising 2-year college that I believe will advance in the coming years.
Coming from Michigan to California and going to there School was quite welcoming. The atmosphere and people are very nice and helping. Teachers and courses are enjoyable. In most cases community colleges are you just going to class but you can actually build friendships there just based off a simple id picture, or eating in the cafe.
