What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great college to attend. There are a lot of resources. I would recommend seeing your counselor before and at the end of every semester; at least that’s what worked for me. I changed majors a few times however the counselors helped me adjust into a new major. Great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dvc is a fantastic school. It’s cheaper and most the teachers are great. I would definitely recommend coming here before heading to a four year to save yourself some money. The culinary students serve food that’s delicious and building a schedule is really easy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like how much availability and happiness to help that the teachers show, also the open minded and friendly community that makes it easier to adapt when you are a new student. Diablo Valley College is a perfect place that provides students with many skills and tools for their future, by providing opportunities like studies abroad, sports, clubs, passionate teachers, and kind counseling resources. DVC is a great stepping stone that will lead you to great places.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like Diablo Valley College. My classes are good and I feel challenged to do my best. It is expensive to go to DVC because there are no dorms. Apartments around school are very nice but unaffordableI. I wanted to play college basketball but it did not work out. I am concentrating on getting good grades.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Diablo Valley is a great school to me because a lot of my professors care about their students. However, what can be improved is the involvement of the students with each other. Overall, the campus is clean and I feel I can successfully transfer to a great UC or CSU

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Diablo Valley College is the one of the best choices for students putting themselves through college. The unit cost is relatively low, with a semester ranging between 500-1000 dollars (including books). The biggest issue I find with DVC is its location. More accurately, the housing costs associated with the location. If you're like me and work a full time job and go to school full time this is a fantastic place to be for your first two years of college. Save money by going to DVC before transferring to a four year, while simultaneously earning a very comparable education to most four-year colleges. I don't see many reasons not to go to a community college as a stepping stone into a four year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great option for community college. It has a wide diversity of students and an outgoing environment. Counselors are helpful and easy to talk to and i think it will be a great fit for me for the next two years. Big campus and accessible parking, I do wish they would encourage more students to be ful tuime and get out in two years

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like DVC. Lots of options for creative classes, there are a lot of intramural and scholastic teams. DVC is consistently rated highly amongst other community colleges in the state and has an excellent transfer program into UC Berkeley and other local schools. Points off for their financial aid department, which is a massive pain and always seems to miss information requiring a separate visit to the school, ALWAYS within business hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great community college to get your two years done. I was able to easily complete my psychology AA in two years and finish with honors. However there isn't too much of a social scene as it is a commuter school and everyone just wants to get out at the end of the day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going into community college, I was upset and uneasy. Diablo Valley made going to a community college feel right. The people are kind and encouraging, the teachers are welcoming and supportive, and the accessibility is amazing. I highly encourage DVC.
