“As long as you put in the effort, study the material, take notes and go to online office hours, you can really learn. I knew that my professors were always available if I needed help. Despite the pandemic, I pushed myself and got straight A’s in fall 2020 — I’m proud of that.”
—Joshua Reyes, ’23 Marketing
“I chose SJSU because I had heard so many good things about it, and once I went to Admitted Spartan Days, I knew that I felt at home. I loved the campus and it seemed like the perfect place to be able to meet new people and find my own place in the Spartan community.”
—Madison Wong, ’23 Psychology
“Everywhere else I had applied, I had seen or visited in person. But I realized that SJSU was a really solid option for me after I followed SJSU social media and attended the online Admitted Spartans activities. It was really nice attending all the online events with my parents in our living room.”
—Cathy Hernandez, ’24 Software Engineering
