Overall, I love Antelope Valley College! I appreciate the smaller sizes of the classrooms because you're able to have a more personable connection with the students and professors. There are a handful of professors who I've walked past in the hallways and who have made conversation with me.
I'm not really happy here. The students aren't very proactive, especially compared to the over 3 thousand students who go here, yet inly 40 people max in the STEM Club, and 23 people max in a Honor's Club. Most people don't really care to be going here, so if you don't care where you go for your education and don't care for the college experience, then this is a great place. But if you want t be very proactive in your college's life, and want to make lots of friends, then I wouldn't really recommend. However, AVC does have some amazing professors, from Math, to primarily Physics with Dr. McGovern, if you are forces to go here, look out for the great professors. They are there, but they are few.
Overall it's a really good foundation for someone who is planning on transferring into University. There are multiple clubs on campus and the honors program is great as well. Overall its a fairly decent place to go, I personally wish there was more than one restaurant on campus and that advertising for clubs was more attainable.
This school is pretty good for a junior college. Some real gems for professors here; some have taught at schools like CSUN, but not all are like that. Some staff are helpful and others are not. In the end it's a very give or take school but it's still pretty good for a JC.

I recently had the opportunity to talk to my younger sister about my experiences, good and bad, about college life, so I know exectly what I would say. I would say, "Holly, you can't do this alone! I know you are an independant person, and you love to problem solve and figure things out for yourself but college is just a little bit bigger than you. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes an entire school to graduate a successful student. And don't worry if all your parents can contribute to your college experience is a pat on the back. There are ways to pay as long a you have a dream. All the money in the world is worth nothing without that dream. Take it and run as fast as you can but please remember to slow down every now and again to enjoy what you are learning and the experiences that you are having. Maybe if you follow this advise, our children won't have to feel like they are doing it alone. One last thing, don't be afraid of that communication 101 class, it will be the best experience ever."
My class mates depend on what time of day I take class: in the early morning classes there are a lot of younger students who just graduated high school but think that they are still in that environment, and the evening classes are filled with working professionals who are very focused and driven to complete their degrees.
I wish i had known just how fun school would be. I also wish i had known just how hard and expensive college is when you have a job and a family to take care of.
I would say that the worst thing about my school would have to be the lack of accommodation. I enjoy my school, but it has one major downfall: It?s the unfortunate fact that my school never has enough room for all the students to get into the classes that they need. Even if you are a priority student there are many times when you cannot even receive a proper schedule. In the end it might take three years to earn your degree.
I believe if everyone had the opportunity for a better education and is willing to make it for a greater future, I would highly recommend this college for all of those who seek a higher education.
Antelope Valley is a school that anyone can attend. It offers a variety of programs to fit anyone's needs. There are transfer programs, associate degree, vocational programs, nursing programs and much much more. The only person who should not attend Antelope Valley College is the kind of person who does not want any type of education.
My school is not the most desired school to attend. At this time, so many classes have been cut; people are having a hard time getting the classes that they need. But as I am an athelete, I get priority. If I were to say what I am proud of at my school, I would definitely state how much money you save staying here rather than going straight to a four year university. Also, there are so many great teachers at this school that you can really connect with, as I have.
Antelope Valley College is known to have many great programs available to the public such as an associates degree in nursing or a certification in aircraft and fabrication.
The best thing about my school are my counselors and professors. They work great with me and always give me the time and attention when i need it most. The work given to me by my professors are challenging and very educating but not too stressful, it can actually get fun sometimes. My counselors are always there to help motivate me and push me to work harder everyday and they're well appreciated.
Antelope Valley College is unique because it is a great stepping stone. It has many opportunities and you can branch out and really find what you are interested in. It is also a lot cheaper than a four year university, so it is great just to get your feet wet in the world of college.
The Parking situation is the most frsutrating. There is construction at school and everyone wants to park towards the front of the campus so there is this big traffic line. I park towards the back of campus where there is no traffic, but I do have to walk.
Its a educational facility that offers a variety of courses that gives its student the necessary skills to benefit themselves.
I am an older returning student. I am not a big part in the social life of college. However there are some great academic programs on campus. Alpha Iota is active on campus, so is the STEM club and the anthropology club (a club I am active in) is continuing to do a massive amount to bring information about the discipline to the college.
If you want to know more about the night life I am not the guy to ask I have a 4 year old son!
the academics are very good at my school. AVC is more geared for remedial work (Math 60, 70, etc. and English 95, 99, etc.) however they also have amazing honors programs and advanced level classes. I am currently a music major and all the professors have been extremely helpful in guiding me through the process of selecting classes that will help me get my degree as soon as I can. the majority of the students are competitive and participation in class is very common.
This is an amazing school. It is a relatively small school and that is perfect for college freshmen. All of my teachers and professors have been amazing. the only complaint that I have is that there are some sports that are only offered for male or female students (There is only boys golf, and there is only girls volley ball) other than that this is a great junior college.
