3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The resources are very limited

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experience is okay the problem is that classes get full fast and parking is crazy. But overall, I am getting my classes to transfer and move on. I am not planning to be in college for ever.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid and the tuition has been waived since I am a US citizen that is great and beneficial since I do not make enough income at the moment since I am a full time student.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not meet with anyone at the career center.

3 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Professors are a bit harsh at grading

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Adding classes can be challenging since the classes tend to be full fast.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The only school I

Was accepted at no matter

What, I am feeling fine

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I had more money, I would go to a more renowned school. However, at this point in my life, this is the best option.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: There really is not a "typical" student at the school. Yes, many are first-generation Hispanic students, but there are so many that do not fit that description. There is a lot of diversity in all areas.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am just taking the GE classes right now. I do not have a declared major.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The registration is horrific. Every single class must be crashed.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not looked into this area, so I have no idea.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library is wonderful. I just wish there would be some "computer police" to monitor what the "students" are really doing on the computers. Sometimes I wait around for half an hour waiting for someone to get off Facebook so I can finally study.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many computers in the library, as well as printers and free wi-fi. The wi-fi, though, is so convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: They are in the process of renovating the campus. Of course, this is not a thing that is accomplished overnight - so they are renewing the place one building at a time. So far, the renovated ones are beautiful and modern. At the same time, however, it leaves the old buildings seem even worse.

College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am a high school student. Under their rules, I am not required to pay.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It was a hassle to sign up. There are many students who seek an education at LAVC, but there is simply not enough room for all of us. The teachers have to deal with too many students and the classrooms are old and dirty.

2 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school's tuition isn't that bad but the financial aid process is bad. The hours for the financial aid office on our campus isn't really convince to the students. Also some of the people that work at the front desk are very rude. I had a couple of bad experience with the financial aid office. If the financial aid had better hours it would be a lot easier for the students.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I took English 101 as an online course and it was the best. I didn't have to sit in a class and waste gas to get there. The professor told us exactly what to do. I did it and got an A. Great class, great method.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, students are satisfied with the Valley College experience, recognizing that you get what you pay for and admitting that Valley College has great opportunities for those who are driven to seek them out. Students who are proactive in joining clubs and seeking transfer opportunities are usually more satisfied than the students who simply phone in their performances. Students complain about the lack of guidance that results in taking classes they don’t really need, but the guidance is there if students persistently seek it out. Attending Valley College can be a good way for students to transition into a four-year college, as the smaller community allows students to get to know their professors and get extra help from tutors if they need it.

With the instability of today’s economy and the insecurity of the post-graduate job market, community college is an excellent option for students who want to avoid taking on tremendous amounts of debt. It’s also a great way for students fresh out of high school to explore their interests before committing to a certain university or major program. Valley College also appeals to older students, whether they are considering a career change or are just interested in taking a class or two. However, this inexpensive alternative to a four-year university will only prepare students for the rigors of college life if the student is willing to take the initiative to challenge himself. Otherwise, students can get lost, floating around in a high school-like environment. Students who graduate from Valley go on to do great things, but the impetus is on the student to make the most of his time at Valley and to stay focused on his goals and plans for the future.
