SJSU does not care about anything except for money. Period. Comparing to the community colleges around the area they should not be charging as much and I will tell you why. They charge high amounts of money and yes you do get great professors and classes(same as any other schools) but that is about it. I guess the ECO pass they give you is just a excuse of why they charge so high but probably only about less than 1/3 of the students uses it. Other than that, nothing. I do not mind that they take the money you pay for great professors and classes. What I do mind is that they keep the school in very poor condition. SJSU always paint and clean the outside to make it look good but they don't take care of the inside or anything else. I went to class on the 3rd floor when it was raining and there was 4 buckets on tables and chairs to collect water leaking in!! I have NEVER seen a school in such bad condition in this area. I mean if I am paying so much money to attend this school at least make it worth my money!! They make it look good just to trap you in. SJSU website also is bad. There are so many bad links and information is a bit hard to find. They will make you go from one site to the other and dig deep inside just to find something you want. The student services center are not very good as well, they take along time to do things and you constantly have to monitor or check because it can be ignored or lost. Don't get me wrong, there are a few people in there that are great but for others, some can't even answer your questions. The overall education you get at SJSU is not very good as well. They will make you pay for everything that you need to use. Some of the professors, counselors, etc, don't even seem like they want to help you or want to be there. What you think SJSU loves their students and will go out of their way to get you the education you deserve? Think again. In my opinion, sjsu is not worth the credit and praise that they get. I get better value, quality, learning environment, and overall college experience at the community colleges around than at SJSU. I do not recommend ANYONE to attend SJSU untill they get their acts together make SJSU a real university. I hope this review helps all of you on deciding which college to go to.
