I attended KVCC right out of high school and then again as an adult. I sincerely wish that this is where I could earn a bachelor's degree. My professors have been amazing and anytime I have needed help from a counselor, I have been extremely pleased. I work in a high school and recommend to all of my students to take classes here either for dual enrollment or after they finish high school.
KVCC is a great place for higher education.
It's what's to be expected of a community college. It's not bad. The classes are small and personal. It feels like a close community, but it might be harder to make friends here as opposed to a four year college because no one lives on campus. The teachers usually know what they're doing and are happy to help.
I dual-enrolled at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. I spent four years total there. Of my 93 credits, and 29 classes, only a few of my professors hadn't either previously or currently taught at Western Michigan University. Therefore, I essentially received a Western Michigan University education at a community college price. Overall, I acquired an amazing education, met a lot of wonderful people, both peers and professors, and learned valuable information both in a classroom setting as well as "real world" experience.
It's a great college! The professors are always available to students after class hours, there are always events going on, whether it's a choir concert, a student seminar, or a meet in the library. The atmosphere is so nice and you never feel like you don't belong there.

I would tell myself many things, but a lot of those would be pointless. I think the most important things in life are those learned from your experiences. It's important to let yourself mess up once in a while, otherwise you have nothing to learn from. If you do everything perfect , you have nothing to improve upon and that makes life pretty boring. I was a terrible student in high school, in fact I was a class short at the end of my senior year and had to continue throughout the summer and didn't graduate on time with the rest of my class. While this was a huge mistake on my part, it's important to note that now, my education is the most important thing to me. I maintain a 4.0 GPA now, I was lucky if I had a 2.0 my senior year. I truly appreciate what I have now and value the things around me, if I could go back in time, I would encourage myself to at least graduate on time, but I would never take away the experiences that made me who I am today.
Everyone that I have had an opportunity to interact with, has been very outgoing and helpful.
Affordable with a variety of programs.
Kalamazoo Valley is a great two year community college. Individuals come here from all walks of life. The support system that Valley offeres it's students is phenomenal. Counselors and teachers make an effort to remember names and faces. Each student has a guidence counselor who will make weekly phone calls to the student just to make sure everything is going well and that they are still continuing down the path that reaches there goals. Kalamazoo Valley not only teaches a curriculum, but more importantly, valley teaches each individual how to get to the next place independently and confidently.

I brag that my school is very hands on. Most of my teachers are great ones and also teach at different universities. It's a smaller college, so their is more one on one time, with teacher to student. I feel like the education I recieve is a great one and I learn a lot. I also like the different learning techniques that the teachers teach us, to understand in a much easier way.
The most frustrating thing about attending Kalamazoo Community College is having to deal with the extremely rude Registration and Financial Aid office workers. They are there to help out KVCC students but seem to just want to get paid and be done with the day. That is why I am going into business, so I can make a change in customer service.
The worst thing about the school I am attending would be the way the building is set up. The building is much like a maze in that I have to go down multiple coridors to get to my class. However, with that being said, the teachers are great, everyone is very friendly and helpful, and I feel like all of the teachers and staff are there to help me do my very best.
The professors are more personal they are someone how you wouldn't tell your personal problems, but you could express your concerns about the classes and they are willing to pay you the attention you deserve . Basically they treat you like a human being rather then just another brat college kid.
Before I came to this school, I wish I had known more about my major, and what I really wanted to go into. I really was not sure what I wanted to do, but if I had knew that, I would been more prepared for the studies.
KVCC is best known as being a great starting place for college students because it is much less expensive than a traditional four year university.
Someone who doesn't know what they want to do yet, someone who is looking to only be in college for two years or less, or someone who wants to get their basic classes out of the way for a lower price.
