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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before attending Diablo Valley College, I was hesitant since I live so close to the school and many people say it's difficult to get involved and develop a social life. However, once attending, I felt really comfortable and extremely welcomed. For one, a lot of my teachers are very warm and intelligent. Secondly, to my surprise, a lot of people in my class were friendly and kind because we are all in the same boat. I am very happy with my decision to attend DVC, I don't think I would want it any other way. In high school, I got really amazing grades, however, I did not have one particular school I was striving for. Being able to attend DVC, has aspired to have bigger and better dreams than I ever did in high school because I have a better chance at transferring to a better school. Since attending DVC, I have definitely developed into a more motivated, dedicated student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Diablo Valley College is a great college, one with many amenities and great student life. However, as a community college, it is lacking in many of the things that make state colleges and universities lively and welcoming. I would recommend people consider all their options before choosing DVC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose this school because of its artistic lifestyle and overall atmosphere, luckily it delivered. I'm very proud to be attending a school where it is encouraged to achieve what I desire, not just by staff but also from other students. Friendly people, fun teachers, and fantastic food are top 3.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

DVC is a great community college to go; especially if you're a STEM major. All sciences classes there are very demanding and the professors are great. I have learned so much from this college and couldn't be any happier with the education I am receiving.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had recently enjoyed attending this college - going to a community college has saved a lot of money for my family, but that comes with a price. The counselors have no idea what they are doing and do not help whatsoever. As a student who is planning to transfer, it is incredibly frustrating not having counselors to provide me with the tools or resources to do so.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

DVC was a very good school, I attended there for awhile and all my English classes were fun and interesting to be in. In some classes there was a lot more reading than what you would expect which helped in class meetings but it would be hard to catch up if you do not do one of the readings. Overall the classes were good and good teachers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, DVC is a great place for high schoolers to transition to college. Most people just go to class and leave so it's hard to meet new people. However, there are a variety of clubs that students can join. A lot of the students end up transferring to UC schools. There are a lot of activities and talks organized so it's interesting if you go to them. DVC is a great place to get back into school or transfer to your dream college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One day as I walked onto campus I realized an empty spot on the ground, by the lake were many ducks swam and lived. They seem free and happy I wish I could be like them, but this spot caught my attention way too much. The campus seemed a little empty. Everyone seems to be in their own business, some rushed to classes others slept on benches burned out from previous classes. As I rushed into class I realized I don't know many people, besides their names there's no connection. It feels empty sometimes, It's been hard integrating into college, especially this empty one. No one told me it would be this hard, this is the life of a first generation. Thanks to my parents efforts, I made this far. As I walked out everyone went their ways, maybe I should have gone to tutoring but rather went to ask my teacher about this quadratic equations that were on my mind. On my way out a news paper caught my eyes, the girls soccer team had advanced to finals. It reminded me of good old times. Sometimes I wish I could play again, maybe it could keep my mind busy during hard times. I'm probably too scared and feel like I wont be good enough. As I looked for spare change in my pocket I did not have enough, food is too expensive here on campus. Sometimes I starve. "You need a job," sometimes I hear that voice in my mind, but with all of this classes I don't have the time. I continued down the path and come across a club organizations but none of them make a spark in my mind. I wish I could start my own club but yet I need more people not just one. I wish this place could make me feel connected but it does not. As I walked I couldn't help it but stare at that empty spot, the whole space is filled with threes and flowers but I decided to plant a seed and grow it in this place. I wonder why the decided to forget this spot and not plant anything before. Then I realized I had to be the change I wanted to see so I started to grow with this tiny seed.
