Testimonials

  • University Housing went the extra mile to save the Mosaic High School Journalism Workshop in Summer 2014. When the journalism building was suddenly closed, they found a computer lab for us to use as our newsroom for two weeks. We at Mosaic were mightily impressed and grateful!
    Joe Rodriguez - Mosaic San Jose High School Journalism Workshop - 2014

  • University Housing at San Jose State offers our journalism bootcamp students a clean and safe haven in the big city. After reporting on the streets and writing under fierce deadlines, they just love relaxing and hanging out in the dorms and getting a taste of college life after high school. They’re perfect for high-school programs that require more supervision but still want to offer their students an enjoyable stay on campus.
    Joe Rodriguez - Mosaic San Jose High School Journalism Workshop - 2011

  • For Strive for College's first national conference, we were very grateful to have been guests on the SJSU campus. Our mentors, college students from all across the country, were very happy with their rooms in the Campus Village. Many expressed wishes that their own college dorms would be as comfortable as those they stayed in that weekend. In addition to fresh linens and toiletries, the conference services department gave each occupant brochures of resources and activities for the San Jose area to welcome our out of town attendees. Not only were the facilities themselves wonderful, but all staff members were friendly and accommodating!
