What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my second semester attending LAVC and I’ve hated it. I was previously enrolled at LACC which is where I completed 90% of my classes but I needed a class that LACC didn’t offer during the season so I had to take it at the nearest college and they made me switch home schools in order to get my financial aid. It’s been ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. It seems like everytime the semester start they take their precious time with the disbursements and then they always try to take ext money. They don’t take academic status into consideration it’s basically like they don’t care. Counselor office is hard to get an appointment with so if anything does go wrong it takes weeks to see a counselor and then EXTRA WEEKS for the to fix the issue

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the campus as it has a lot of greenery, delicious Acai bowls, and a diverse community. Because it is a community college, it is also quite affordable. There are a variety of courses in order to help students find their true interest. In being able to finally solidify my major, and join a club related to my new found interest in Film, Television, and Entertainment, I became forever grateful for Los Angeles Valley College. However, the Broadcasting Department lacks the motivation to make the department as amazing as it should be. I found that the Cinema/Media Arts department has professors that are genuinely interested in their subject and teachings, but are not always welcoming of diverse creative styles. This school in particular, only offers scholarships once a year as well. I have taken a variety of subject at this campus and have only had one difficult professor. The professor was simply difficult to communicate with, and there are a few others, but this has never stopped me from maintaining my GPA. This campus also has a large amount of resources for minorities, foster youth, undocumented students, and more. Unfortunately, this not advertised and must be sought out, as with most event and resources on campus. It is also incredibly difficult to see a counselor, especially if you are not on campus. Students must come to the office in person at 8AM in order to guarantee an appointment. There is also an online option, however, not all ID numbers work. The counseling office claims that students may call in instead, but they do not answer the phone until the in-person line has been completed and appointments are no longer available. If students need to see a counselor on the same day they must call or go into the counseling office in the morning for a 10 minute appointment versus the 30 minute appointment offered on Tuesdays only. Luckily, I have found a counselor who listens and offers genuine academic advice, but I have not met another counselor who cares. If you are someone who can conduct a plan on their own and simply confirm with a counselor and are confident in finding resources on your own, the campus may be a more pleasant experience. At the very least, this is a great option for student who know they want to transfer and know their transfer path, or students looking to explore potential majors and/or certifications. The last downfall of this campus is that they are pushing for fully online courses and are no longer offering a variety of on-campus options for those, such as myself, who are auditory learners and prefer in-person lectures.

I think its a very good middle ground school to get you to the next step in your journey. There are lots of opportunities to help you with whatever you want to do. This school sets up your future but you have to have the drive to work for it because no one is around to push you. They will set you up in the right direction then you're on your own.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great school for those whom are advancing in to four year universities or those whom prefer to get a two year degree. They have helped even those whom have been out of school to get back into achieving their education . It’s a tight community where the staff and faculty all want to see you succeed and they will never let you drop the ball on your education .

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.
