Founded in 1857, San Jose State University is the oldest campus on the West Coast and home to 30,000 students who are involved in 134 majors in seven colleges, receiving hands-on learning, professional development and personal growth. Silicon Valley firms constantly seek SJSU students for internships, summer work programs, and R&D jobs. In recent years, the university has also made a competitive athletic statement to its Western Athletic Conference rivals. A pleasant stroll through campus could end at the San Jose State Events Center or the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library.
