" Overall, I'm happy with SJSU. Campus is fun and is trying to raise school spirit by hosting lots of events. My major has been treating me well, but registering for classes can get tricky since the entire business department is impacted. Because of this, many students take up to 5 years to graduate. Most advisors are nice. Our career center has various job fair Parking has been easy to find if you're willing to go for rooftop parking; I've heard of other students having issues with lower floors. Campus clubs are great with lots of nice people; your experience is highly what you put into. Don't be afraid to talk to people. Lastly, join the Sammy App to talk to students; it's very active. The only cons are the surrounding area can get sketchy at night, but you'll be fine as long as you're aware of your surroundings or walk with friends. Another con is the wifi can get iffy every now and then. Overall, it's a good school for the cost. "

" Campus is pretty easy to navigate. Because it is located in downtown it can get sketchy later in the day. Most students and faculty members are nice and willing to help. They got a brand new gym that you can use for free if you are a student. Their library is really big and nice. "

" My experience at San Jose State University was generally positive. The one thing is that there is ZERO parking!! This made it difficult to make it to class on time, or even make it there at all. Other than that, the architecture was beautiful, student life was fun, some teachers were amazing, others not so much. "

" I decently enjoyed this school for its involvement in school spirit, events, organizations, and some of the teachers. However, some departments definitely needed an upgrade. For future students, I would highly advise looking up professor ratings to ensure you get the best professor for learning. Also, to join the many organizations on campus in order to meet and connect with more people. "

" Good University, but parking is IMPOSSIBLE! There is not enough on campus parking. They have off campus parking then you have to take a shuttle to campus. The San Jose area is obviously very expensive which make it hard to find living. The cheapest way to go for living is going to be a house with multiple people. Love that the campus is downtown and you can easily walk or bike anywhere downtown! "
