“There’s certain areas that you don’t even want to go near because you know exactly how high the rent is going to be. When I graduate I’m hoping that I get my career started and can afford to live by myself but I don’t know if I’m going to be able to do that right away. Lots of people are moving here because of the whole technology boom and jobs are popping off and more companies are expanding. Google’s getting larger you know, Facebook is trying to do more campuses and more people are moving here because of job opportunities but it’s also kind of raising the price of rent and making it not as easily affordable for a lot of people that were originally living here or moved here for school.”

Carlos, A San Jose State Senior
