5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The campus resources are awesome!. The learning center is a tremendous help.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: financial aid was a breeze i had no hassle or any complaints.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Life at AV – The teachers are awesome at AVC. My experience there over all was not too bad. The learning center was a huge help as far as tutoring goes. The only thing that is annoying about AVC is registering for classes, they are always full and my only option is to crash the courses i needed. So i wasnt guaranteed a place in the class.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Happy With the School, but Not the Students – AVC has a low overall graduation rate. It is at 20% and I do not blame this on the faculty, I blame this on the type of students that go to AVC, most students that are motivated usually leave the Antelope Valley for another university and this is probably due to the negative student atmosphere at the college. I somewhat dislike AVC and originally I planned on going straight to a university (only problem was that my parents thought I should stay with them for another year since I was 17 at the time, and still am). So by doing this grade I am not only grading my school but the students, If I were to grade the school itself it would earn a B+ for great effort to help the students but it is dificult to be motivated at a college where nobody cares.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition Is Good – The amont of money im paying to the school is manageable. i do not get any finical aid so i pay full out of my pockets, but i manage to get by with the help of my parents. usually i split the bill with my parents every semester and i pay for my own books, which i rent.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Working Class Student – Most of the student at AVC are comprised of three categories: Working class adults who came back to school to get a degree, people who come to class to get only finical aid, and there are students like me who are living at home and possible working awhile attending classes. Students for the most part are friendly but choose not to socialize unless forced to by the professor.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not to Bad – If i had the chance to do it all over again i would choose AVC again because this school provided everything needed for a student to succeeded in their classes. I was provided with services such as free tutoring for math and english at the tutoring center, help from teachers during their office hours, and above all a clean campus and air conditioning. Oh and occasionally the school would give free food for students on student appreciation day. overall i was able to get the classes i needed and the right working condition to go with it.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: OK School – The main reason why i gave the school a B- is because my only complant was that there was too much competition for classes and not enough classes, but overall the teachers i had over there were very good and even when out of there way to assist me in my educationally career.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: i wish the professors helped out alittle more and was nicer

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: it all good they pay for everything so i have no worries and am learning alot of things i did'nt know

5 College Junior

Career Services: Career Center Helpful – i have had noproblems with the career center. and the career center sends me job placements every week

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The network is pretty well maintained and the professors use work with you if you expericence problems.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professors are very knowledgeable and will help if asked.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The campus is clean with a brand new auditorium for theatre perfomances.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Could've Been Easier – I am happy to be starting my education. I am excited to be learning the quintessentials to a subject and health area that I am so very interested in. The road getting to this point was very windy, lots of potholes, but my motivation to get to the destination is strong.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Squeaky Tight With Assistance – wow the cost of attending this CC is wild, after fafsa I dont even have enough to get my books, no other scholarships (that I have been able to find) through or for AVC

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Right and Left Hand Not Communicating Well – it seemed to me that I would speak to one financial aide worker and get one batch of information, I would get an email requesting more action, I would go in and the other worker would look me up and say youre good, then I check my email again and again..........and so on, and so on, very frustrating, however my motivation to continue my education far outweighs that miscommunication

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I'm getting is definitely well worth the money i'm paying, I only payed one dollar last semester for 11 units. I also qualified for a grant and I got about $2,000.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I go to the learning center sometimes to get tutoring or to get help on math, but because of the budget cuts, tutoring is limited to one hour per week for general tutoring and for math there are not enough tutors, so it takes a while for an individual to get help. The library has textbooks people can use, but you can only check the textbook out for one hour at a time and you have to wait 15 minutes to check out the same book again. I don't know too much about the campus activities, but sometimes the have some type of events were they give people free food so that is pretty cool and one time I won a free shirt. I joined a few clubs on campus, I joined the science club, the physics club, and the rocket club, but it seems like the don't do much just have meeting about what they want to do, but they never really do anything with the exception of the rocket club, and the only thing we did last semester was just build one rocket.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not graduated yet, and I have not been to the career center yet.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Computers are usually available, the computers are not too slow, I don't know about the wi-fi, but printing cost 15 cents a page.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Wireless Access – One problem about this school is the Wireless Access. There is none. You can try to connect to the wireless router they have in the school, but it wont allow your phone to have wireless internet, but yet, your phone shows that it is connected.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I would say that there student body is what separates us from other schools. For student appreciation, they decided to put on a full carnival to show how much they appreciated us. I don't know of any school that have done that.

3 College Senior

Student Body: its overall a good school, they make us feel proud for our community to have its own college.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I like taking an online course, but interaction with professors and peers is important to me. Without that, I feel that I don't learn as well and I sometimes procrastinate.
