De Anza has a large, beautiful campus -- especially for a Community College. Navigating around campus isn't too difficult, and you should know your way around to your classes after a few days. The campus itself is lively, and there are occasional activities located around the cafeteria area which help keep each day new and exciting.

This is one of America's best community colleges! I really liked the professors here, they are not only fun and interesting, but also very informative and they know a lot from experience. My first teacher for Social Psychology, Ms. Quish Beckum made me re-think the life in a community college and I really think I can enjoy my experience here in De Anza College. Also, they have a great program called TAG for prospective transfer students to most University of California (UC). They are world renowned colleges and De Anza has a guaranteed acceptance agreement to 7 of 9 of the colleges. In addition to the transfer program, the school has connections with various local business/branches for internships. I think this is the best part of this college, because you can achieve an A.A or A.S at the college and expect to be hired, at least as an intern, by various companies looking for young and innovative prospects! Not to mention Apple HQ is located in Cupertino, Californa. Some tips for prospective students: don't be lazy, classes fill up the first 5 minutes the window is opened! So wake up in time. Join clubs, student body for a chance to get into the college you want. Just because it is a community college doesn't mean the classes are NOT hard. They are equally difficult and the skills you learn here, you will be able to take and use for the rest of your life. Just enjoy your stay and remember to be attentive and never lose sight of your goal.
