What is your overall opinion of this school?

Many people consider Los Angeles Valley College the place where you lose yourself educationally. The graduation and transfer year is very low and I know a multitude amount of people that have taken 5+ years to get a two year transfer degree. Most classes are mainly pushovers and the professors seem to always be lenient.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LAVC is really great as a community college. The teachers are very informed and are able to talk with the class in depth about the subject matter. The cafeteria is actually pretty good although not gourmet. The biggest issue is that a lot of the resources like the library and labs are not always accessible, due to low funding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Los Angeles Valley College is a community college with a wide variety of opportunities for students. They include many student services such as financial aid, job training and opportunities, transferring programs, as well as yearly scholarship opportunities available. The faculty and staff are always available to help fellow students or prospective students interested. There are a wide variety of courses available with more than 140 academic and certificate programs to choose from. As an arts major, I was able to not only take and finish most of my general education courses, but I was able to help build and create my art portfolio through the many art classes Valley has to offer. Not only are there general ed, computer, and performing art classes available, but you can also enroll in other physical classes like yoga or judo. Los Angeles Valley College is a very open minded campus that supports their students no matter what background they have, whether they are in need of financial help, come from an immigrant background/first generation students, or are a part of the minority or LGBTQ+ community. The campus also offers financial opportunities and programs available to those backgrounds/communities as well. As a student currently enrolled in Los Angeles Valley College, I can definitely recommend coming here because of the broad opportunities available. Most students here are very involved on campus activities, whether it is through attending clubs or working on campus. Through this you can build connections with students and staff in helping you further your career path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Los Angeles Valley College is mediocre at best because it does not offer enough to STEM students. There are typically only one or two sections of any class in higher mathematics, physics, chemistry, or any similar subject. Often, these classes have conflicting schedules, preventing students from taking the classes they need in a timely manner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to valley college was not my first choice, I felt like coming here instead of a prestigious school the professors may not think much of me or they might not care. I thought the students would be careless and the resources poor BUT I was wrong! I am happy to have opted to this school. I came to this school because I could not afford to do four years in a university, and I feel like I received just as good of a general education for so much less in cost. The professors were above my expectations, caring, committed available, respectful and resourceful. Classes are small in size and a lot of the time, the professors are coming from other universities and just teach at several schools. The class discussions were always so diverse and interesting there are people of all ages and backgrounds. The offices for resources like admissions and financial aid always did their best to help me as best as they could I really have no complaints. I came here expecting little and I am so happy I did my general education here I would have been in debt, but I have been able to pay for all my classes at valley college without breaking my bank! I suggest this to anyone who is also undecided it is a good way to know you're not wasting so much money if you end up changing your major or path which is very common.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My time at LAVC was very nice. It was a great college to collect transfer credits. My experience with the staff was good, only a few hiccups trying to register as a resident with the college. When I applied to go to school I had only just lived in Los Angeles for a year so showing the correct documents was a process. The rest of the time there was wonderful. The professors were all very caring and open to questions and helping whenever needed. I had one of the best class experiences of my life at LAVC taking English 103 with Professor Kaz and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. Speech 101 with Dr. Green was also one of the best classes I've taken.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Of all three Community Colleges in the San Fernando Valley that I have personally attended, Los Angeles Valley College is honestly my favorite. Faculty are extremely helpful, professors are fair in their grading and appropriately challenge students. The campus itself is well maintained, and you can tell everyone takes pride in this campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally, had a great experience at Valley. I love the school. The Mathematics department, in my opinion, is the hidden diamond of departments. The English department has a lot of love for its students. People on campus kind of keep to themselves...not much comradery unless you know someone from high school after recently graduated. Overall opinion? Keep reading... Valley College is like every other college, the opinion differs from person to person based on the major they selected and who the school hired that year. So, I don't really have an overall opinion about the school. Groups make an otherwise dead campus life, come alive. Administration is careful NOT to appropriate too many funds in campus life because of the lack of community among students. Let's get real...most students that go there weren't great students to begin with, so why would anyone think about investing in that? I don't mean to sound harsh but here's a few things that you may find interesting. The campus has a newer feel when you first enter from the front entrance and from the back street entrance where the sheriff's station is...still is? It's as if they want to appear like a newer school from a street view...and there's nothing wrong with that; however, once you're inside some parts of the campus look like you've stepped out of a Delorean. Don't get me wrong, this has no impact on the quality of the education but the campus does appear a bit aged which may or may not impact one's motivation. Admissions/Student Services personnel is just there for a paycheck. Clearly. Extremely unpleasant individuals that work behind the counter, unless they have an office, then they treat you like you have a name. This is the same at most community colleges (I've attended 4 of them) so don't think I'm pointing fingers. Hold on....IF...now this is a BIG IF...IF YOU are an exceptional student, I'm talking Magna or Summa Cum Laude status, the staff actually treats you better. Unfortunately, you have to get them to look up your records so they know that about you but once they do, THEN and ONLY THEN will you get some kind of "service with a smile." So, it does pay off to be a good student, otherwise they just assume you're another bubblegum-chewing high school drop-out. I'm not trying to bash the school that has helped me so much, rather I'm trying to exploit something in general about community college campuses. It just so happens that this was the first LACCD campus I attended so I decided to write about it but most of the negative information applies to the LACCD campuses in general. LACC is the same. ELAC is the same. Trade Tech is the worst...wow. So, overall? There is no such answer that accurately encompasses a valid opinion.
