Irvine Valley College Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.


My classmates are quiet in the classroom.


Alot of kids are here to save money on college and on track to better colleges than the ones they were accepted to in high school. I am one of them. So you won't see alot of very financially privileged kids here (they would've already gone to a state college with their parents' money, duh). Some kids are also here because for some reason or other they weren't doing well at their college or they didn't like it there. Personally, I haven't seen alot of LGBT kids. There are very few. IVC is pretty racially diverse, but by quick judgment I think the majority are Caucasians, Asians and Persians. It's really a mixed bag. There are some strange people and there are mostly completely normal people. Especially during night classes there are sometimes middle-aged adults with full-time jobs taking classes, so you might be taking a class with someone who's 60 years old. It's pretty interesting. Most of the students are from around Irvine of course since this is a cc. Since alot of the students are foreign, there tends to be a lot of racially divided groups. However I think this is because of differences in cultural backgrounds and not necessarily racial issues.
