Intro to De Anza
De Anza college is in the heart of Silicon Valley. Cupertino, California. De Anza is one of the best community colleges around the area if not around the nation. Many people transfer out to UC's, CSU's, or private uni's. Someone I know very well transferred from DeAnza to Cornell. I goto DeAnza college, and I love it there! The thing is about DeAnza it is very diverse. Now you must be thinking well all community colleges are diverse because hello anyone can goto community college. But DeAnza is even more diverse because people from all over the bay area go here. People all the way from San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Fremont/Union City, San Jose go here. Especially this quarter (fall '08) it seems like there are many more people here. We have people from all walks of life. Rich, poor, black, white, smart, all sorts. DeAnza is a great school for pretty much everything! There is so much life and culture. It honestly feels like a city in it self! We have great little areas for eating, and hanging out, studying... There's always something going on at school! Just today they had local live bands playing. I highly recommend DeAnza college for anyone and everyone! The only downside is you must remember to keep on track and focus on your grades. College is not an easy place. Everyone says college is difficult, nothing is difficult. It is all about strategies. Since DeAnza is such a culturally enriched school it is very easy to get lost as far as college career goes. And because the teachers are so good it honestly feels like a four year institute. Though just remember it is only a transfer school to something even better. You will do fine. Thanks for reading! Good luck!
