Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
