In the Heart of Silicon Valley
De Anza College is located in the city of Cupertino, California, 45 miles south of San Francisco and 6 miles from San Jose in the heart of world famous Silicon Valley. The area is home to many of the nation's leading hi-tech corporations, such as Apple, Google, Cisco, Intel, Oracle, and Hewlett-Packard. Due to the high concentration of venture capitalist investment in the area, the area is also home to thousands of start-up companies in all fields. As a result of this extraordinary environment, De Anza is rapidly becoming an educational hub for training in Computer Information Systems, Business Administration/Management, Broadcasting (Film/TV), and Design. De Anza boasts one of the highest rates in the state for annual student transfers to the University of California and California State University.
Located on 112 acres, De Anza has a distinct aesthetic that harmonizes with the surrounding community and preserves some of the historical architecture and landscape of the area. The buildings are a blend of Spanish and modern architecture with adobe-like walls, red tile roofs, arches, and central fountains. The arches of the De Anza campus are featured in the school logo. Notable places on campus include the The Flint Center, a major performing arts auditorium, which has hosted many outstanding speakers and cultural events, such as the symphony, ballets, and Broadway shows. The campus also features an Olympic aquatics complex and a 5,000-seat Outdoor Events Arena and is home to the Fujitsu Planetarium, California History Museum, and Euphrat Museum of Art.
