We walked the university campus and enjoyed the beautiful roses. The chapel was lovely. A very serene and peaceful experience. School was not in on this day.

Teachers here focus on teaching and students rather than research. It's a great place for undergraduates. Their fine arts programs deliver wonderful concerts, theatre, and dance events at a very low price.

San jose or San Francisco is the nearest airport. From SFO, you can take caltrain which has station just in front of University. Else you can take flight to SJ airport & then take a taxi to the university.
