  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I visited the campus and I was pleasantly surprised with a beautiful scenery. If I hand't seen the sign labeling the place as Foothill College, I swear I would've thought it was a park or a camping site with cabins. I was enamored with it at first sight. As I walked around exploring the campus, it was calm peaceful and relaxing. It resembled a hike on a sunny day at your favorite park. There are lots of hills you have to walk through and will probably help you shed those unwanted pounds and give you shapely legs! Its a mild workout to get around and I couldn't have it any better! Killing two birds with one stone is the right expression for this place: get an education while losing weight!!! I just love this college.

    The atmosphere of Foothill's campus is serene with tall trees everywhere and lush lawns of soft grass. The campus is quiet and peaceful, but a lot of the time there will also be something fun going on in the campus center and although the hills that the campus is built upon may be arduous for those who are handicapped, I consider it part of my daily exercise.
