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.
Review San Jose City College
Most of the teachers really care and try to teach what they believe is important to learn for future careers. A few try to give the same education that they learned at ivy league schools. The work load is incredibly manageable and on the light side. The building are very nice, but the Wi-Fi is terrible and exceptionally slow. Most of the counselors are terrible and do not care about the students, however, there are a couple who are fantastic and get the job done quickly without all the run around. The programs are great and the education is worth every penny.
After finally going to three different schools' financial aid office, San Jose City helped me to fill out FASFA. It also gave me different options on resources that could help me such as: EOPS, BOG waiver, etc.
