3 College Student

Overall Experience: I like it, it's short, sweet, and to the point. If under different circumstances, I would probably still choose this school again due to it being nearby and offering my degree.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a really good school, and I like most of the teachers there, but sometimes it's really hard to actually get into the classes you need.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Not much of a community. Okay classes and teachers. Nice campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes I've taken have been great, and the campus looks nice. You also don't have to pay as much for classes as other schools, which is always great in my book.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't had any classes that I thought were bad. Pretty much all of them had good teachers and/or were enjoyable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Yes, I love being at DVC. It has been a great experience so far.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers I have had are wonderful and really take a lot of pride in their work and want you to do your best. The class size can get out of hand sometime but in a few weeks students either stay or drop out and the problem is then solved. The courses that DVC offeres are wonderful, there are many different career paths students can take and each path has its own set of classes for what the students are looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school allows you to expand your horizons and allows you to start your career in a good direction and it also gives others students the opportunity to take classes they are interested in even if it doesn't relate to their career choice.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I don't have any experience with the online courses but I heard they are very good.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Its great being surrounded by different ethnics and religions and being able to meet so many new people from all over the world.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I find the fees for classes are pretty straightforward but the fees for class materials such as books and other educational needs tend to be very pricey.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't know much about alumni networks but the career center I heard is very helpful and plan to visit it soon.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love my teachers so far. They are super dedicated to you and want you to succeed.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Its not bad, it is a good sized work load and very resonable.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They help you when you ask them questions but sometimes they give you misleading advice.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Diablo Valley College is a community college so most people are trying to get their AA and transfer to a university. Often people do not know what their major is yet. As far as internships, I wish they offered more of them! I would of been interested, if i had known of any in my area.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Diablo Valley College offers all types of classes from construction management to core classes like math, english, and science. I wish the school offered more free tutoring from each professor at their office hours, I think that would really help the turn out of the class. Professors often have office hours but are sadly not willing to help much.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The frustration that i have experienced going to Dibalo Valley College was mostly the attendance. Professors expect you to be there every class and if you miss more than 4 classes per semester they will fail you. I have had notes from doctors excusing me from class because i had been sick for more than a week, yet my grade was heavily affected!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could do it over again i would of still gone to Diablo Valley College, due to the fact that it is the most affordable option for college. I did enjoy the art classes at DVC and enjoyed being taught by professors that teach at prestigious schools like UC Berkeley and Stanford.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes at Diablo valley college are extremely impacted. My advice is to always show up early and leave late. The professors are great and often teach at CSU or Universities near by.
