Antelope Valley College is a great community college. It's a starting point to benefit your live. Education is power! I wish this school gave more bachelor opportunities. They do have a couple like nursing but that is a small portion from the rest of the students trying to continue there studies. Since this college is ever affordable, many students do not have the financial needs to go to an expensive university. They professors are there for the students. So far every teacher I had would help me with any problem even on there own time (lunch breaks or after school hours). They want each student to succeed and they give the students the grade they deserve from tests grades, homework, participation in lectures and labs. Antelope Valley College strides to help the community and fellow students by, handing out free food and drinks. They also have free tutoring most of the time unless it is a holiday. This college gives out many helping hands to conquer there tasks to receive a certificate or diploma. Now it just depends on how determinate do the students are to study and pass there courses.

The computers run very well! I have only ever experienced one problem when it came to doing work on the computer, printing, or copying documents. Once in my psychology class (online course), I was unable to turn my homework in because there was a server glitch. My teacher fully understood and extended our deadline by one day. Overall everything runs quite efficiently, I never have problems printing or copying documents or evening using the computer and the schools website.

Although this school has a decent selection of classes, a somewhat helpful staff, and a few caring professors I've noticed a lot of flaws in the overall quality of this college. Although they are updating buildings and even building a new nursing building some other parts of campus are just forgotten it seems. When I was in my basic 2D auto cad class there were issues with some of the computers. My professor tried everything he could to get them fixed and eventually the I.T guy came to fix it... 2 months into class and even then didn't fix it! Furthermore some of the professors are completely unhelpful. For example, in my ENGR 115 class a few students didn't understand the idea of auxiliary drawings, they proceeded to ask the professor who then looked up with a grin saying &amp;quot;I can't spoon feed it to you.&amp;quot; I thought professors were getting paid to teach not to leave students in the dust. However the rest of the class proceeded to teach the few who were confused. Overall however this college is adequate; some of the staff are very helpful (i.e. job placement) while other not so much (registration). I had to spend over 6 hours and 3 different trips to register in my Math 150 course although I had all of the correct qualification. If I could I would gladly have chosen a different college but could not due to the small selection here in Antelope Valley.
