Kaia - 05/29/2020

Academically, on average the professors have consistent and reliable office hours, will dedicate their effort and time to answer any questions, and typically strictly follow their syllabuses. The school tries to provide additional help to the students, such as free tutoring and rentals. The student body is also small in comparison to other community colleges, therefore it is easier to get into the classes that you need, though core classes often have longer waitlists. There are many places to study; the library has study rooms and private desks, and is quiet. Beside the occasional cultural event, the school spirit is basically nonexistent. In the two years I have been there, I still cannot definitively say anything about sports teams or the role of the student council. The clubs are few in number, yet there is a very active Kpop dance club. The cafeteria food is average and the prices not too outrageous. However, a short stroll away from the school leads to a small plaza that contains Starbucks, Le Boulanger, Iguanas, etc... On safety, I have left my car in the parking lot until 11:00 at night for night classes and have never feared getting it broken into, though you should always be cautious when walking alone in the dark. Overall, Evergreen Valley College is an alright school if you want to get through all your courses and build a strong foundation, but lackluster in terms of building community.

Nehemiah - 02/04/2020

It is OK. I've never had to do anything I didn't want to, but I am wary of counselors. Most of them discourage people from trying, yet they have what they need to aim for their future goals. The cultural events are worth attending, and the food/ clothes pantry help out a lot.

I'm attending Evergreen Valley College since 2017 because it's the nearest to my house. Evergreen is a safe place to be at, there's always security for anything. Evergreen has many majors for you. Whenever the class is full and you already enrolled in other classes you could easily go to san Jose city college because of sister schools. It's also a small school that your classes are not even far. Overall, it's a great school. Many people get involved in activities.

  10. Describe the best and worst parts of the social scene on campus.

    The social clubs and the Associated student Government give opportunities for people to develop relationships with each other. Some become life long friends, partners, close friends, and create vision for a school. Social events help students to know others and it makes school fun for those who are stressful. Although the clubs and Associated Student Government create fun activities for students, some people have a very difficult time speaking to others with a learning disability when they are trying to meet people for friends. Some men get easily rejected by women when they start a conversation without asking out them out on a date. Some club leaders refused to help club members to improve their Journalism skills.

  13. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    Every semester it's getting more difficult to register for classes. The budget cuts don't help. Often I see many people on this campus taking care of bussiness doing their papers in the libraries, making their projects creative, and working in group presentations. These are the kind of people who want to progress. People who waste their time in the classroom are the people who shouldn't attend this school or any other school in general. College is about taking care of bussiness no matter if its a community college or a four year.
