Overall I had a great experience at San Jose City College. I feel like the variety of classes available, both on campus and online, were sufficient and I never went without getting a class I needed! The counseling office was a huge help to me as well, they really aided me in the right direction. The only downfall to the campus is the parking, but I've had a lot of luck with that.

This is a fascinating area with a dark background. There are numerous entrances to an underground cavern in the parking lot of the college. Many students are unaware of its existence, due to lack of interest in exploration. One frequented by various professors (I shan't name names) is by the northeastern Sequoia tree is actually a vault which stores Jeffrey Epstein. He sells copies of the New York Times, and mangoes, when they are in season. The vault, of course, also acts as a nuclear-proof bunker. Traversing deeper into the bowels of the cavern is not recommended, as it is infested with bats.
The support at San Jose City College is the key to Success. Why? many colleges focus on support but do they really focus on their students. San Jose City College offers many counselors to choose from but these aren't regular counselors these are counselors with stories to share they worked hard, they studied hard, and they dealt with things just like us. Wanting to be a counselor myself I like to focus on how my college's counselors connect with their students. My experience has focused on initial contact and mental health support at SJCC. So far San Jose City has not disappointed. As every time I visit a counselor, I feel worry free and stress-free rather than the opposite.
