Welcome Message

Welcome to Foothill College – a college with a national reputation for academic excellence and innovation, and a family of talented faculty and staff who cares deeply about your success. 

“There is no passion to be found playing small–in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
- Nelson Mandela

Discover your passion at Foothill. Explore what interests you, both inside and outside the classroom. Foothill College’s strengths include a notable record in transfer and career education, complemented by exemplary competitive athletics, extra-curricular activities, and student service programs.  We encourage you to take advantage of every aspect of Foothill College to enrich both your educational and social life. 

This fall, we are thrilled to welcome the inaugural class of students who will graduate with a dental hygiene bachelor’s degree in 2018!  Foothill College was chosen by the California Community Colleges Board of Governors as one of only 15 colleges in the state to offer a baccalaureate degree – a pilot program authorized for the first time by the California Legislature. We are also looking forward to celebrating the grand opening of our Sunnyvale Center this fall. Students may choose from a wide variety of programs that focus on emerging and in-demand fields such as computer science, geospatial technology, emergency medical services, and biomedical devices. The center will house a full complement of services, including admissions, counseling, and a bookstore. Conveniently located within the Moffett Business Park, the Sunnyvale Center is easily accessible via freeways 101 and 237 and near a VTA light rail stop.

As I begin my first year as president of Foothill College, I am eager to meet you and help you achieve your aspirations. We are here for you! On behalf of the faculty and staff at Foothill, I wish you every success and enjoyment in the pursuit of your academic goals. 

Thuy Thi Nguyen, J.D.
President, Foothill College
