Isabella - 11/14/2021

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.

Paige - 05/11/2021

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.

Shavonne S

My overall opinion of the college, is that it's nobleness and prestige has really given this academic institution a very bright and appealing reputation that will satisfy current and future prospective students to excel against all odds and to one day become future leaders, endeavoring to make a change.

Antelope Valley College is a spectacular community college to help integrate freshly-graduated high school students into the real world. When I attended AVC, I worked full time and was a full time student. My schedule was very busy, but all of the teachers understand that most of their students work and go to school on the side. The teachers were always willing to meet outside of the classroom to offer any assistance. The campus is safe and beautiful and all of the students are very involved. I wish I didn't have to attend a university in order to finish my degree, I would love to continue going to Antelope Valley College.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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."

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    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.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    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.

  8. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    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.
