I've never known any other college but Yakima Valley Community College, but I'm happy with the small sleepy school. Upon coming to this college, I was rewarded with new friends, new experiences, and the comfort of home. It's refreshing to be so close to my school! The small community is like a large high school and most of us know each other already, which takes the stress away from starting a new school. With a stress free college life, it's easy to make new friends. I work full time as I go to college full time and I don't find myself too stressed out. College has taught me that group projects aren't as terrible as I always thought (probably because everyone is serious about contributing to their work load) and solo presentations will still be the death of me. I'm working on it though! This small town college will help me grow because I can feel comfortable in my skin and study in the comfort of my apartment.

The campus is very small so you get to know the lay of the land very easy and very quickly. If you are from a smaller school setting, I would recommend this school first.

It's a good beginner school. I have enjoyed a few of my teachers, a few not so much. I can't get where I'm going from a community college, otherwise it would be a good choice. Teachers inspire connection with community and classmates.
