Why I Chose this school?

I chose San Jose State because I first fell in love with the city and the area. I got to know the town because my younger brother plays for their academy soccer team so I would always travel to San Jose. After time I started to like the area and what they had there I started doing research on their university. I also had a family friend that is currently a student at SJSU and told me about their programs, the area, the sororities and much more. Their university has an impact on business which I am planning to have for my backup just incase anything happens later on in life. They also have a close community college that has sonography and I can always do. San Jose is a semi-diverse community that does include Latinos so I am very opened up to learning new things from different cultures and yet still have my culture involved.
