It is a great school but the ratings I gave it were mainly because I haven't been in the school due to social distance learning. From what I know the school is great and there are many wonderful programs that help inform students of what is going on and what is going to happen with school and online learning.
Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) is a good community college. The price per credit is affordable and the selection of classes is decent. I am a high school (concurrent) student, so under California Law, I have the ability to take community college classes for free. LAVC's student body is very artistic and unique. There are all sorts of people that attend classes at LAVC - actors, professionals, regular community college students, returning older students, people from all races and cultural backgrounds, etc. The campus is best described as, well, wabi-sabi. However, one can come to appreciate the slightly worn, well-used appearance of the buildings and general campus. Overall, LAVC is a good school - perhaps not the best, but certainly not the worst.
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.
The idea of a community college is great. Does LAVC give you what you expect? Yes. Does it give you much more? No. Overall, the classes are relatively easy. I've been involved in tutoring and what not, and I've aced all my classes. The real question is, are we really learning anything? That answer would be, "I guess". You get what you put in, but that ceiling for your effort isn't as high as it would at a university. LAVC is exactly what it should be, unfortunately, it's nothing more. If you're a resident, you get what you pay for. If you're a non-resident such as myself, I feel bad for you.

This is an interesting proposal, as I recently returned to college after a 20+ year absence. When I had first attempted college at the age of 18, back in 1991, I was extremely naive as to what responsibilities lied ahead, and the struggles I would face with time management. Though I failed abysmally at my first college experience, I returned years later, prepped with the tools and life lessons necessary to ensure my success. I believe that every experience has only added to my ability to focus and study, and to have an appreciation for the opportunities presented to me.
I have packed a lot of life in 20 years, from suburbia to drug addiction-fueled homelessness to recovery and all of the joys and sorrows I've experienced along the way. I've been a married housewife, a server in a world-famous 4-star hotel, a touring rockstar, and the owner of a film production company. If I could speak to my 18 year-old self, I would tell her to "enjoy the ride. Even though life is bumpy at times, it's filled with beauty. Follow your heart and don't be afraid to say yes."
The best thing here at Valley College are the teachers. They are very organized in their presentations, they are very helpful, funny and fair. I move here from Sacramento and I felt like I could have a relationship with them instead of being afraid of them. Not all theachers have all the qualities mentioned but whatever quality they have I trully felt that they are dedicated to make students learn and understand what they are teaching.
Valley college offers a beautiful campus with great resources to gain knowledge for our futures and for our present. LAVC has great professors that have positively impacted my life and helped me gain the information I needed to continue my education at a four year university. Without Valley College, I probably would not have heard about the University I want to attend. Campus is green, people are nice, classes are not too large. Overall, a great school!

Los Angeles Valley College is best known for its transfer programs. As the time for transferring comes to a close, Valley offeres at least two weeks worth of orientations aimed to aid their students transfer to their school of choice. (Valley offers an accelerated program that also gives its students a higher probability of being accepted to a UC campus than a high school student or a student attending a four-year college or university.)
The worst thing about my school is the food in the cafeteria. In general the food is more expensive and not as tasty as you could get it from anywhere else. They have limited options of healthy food. Whatever they have and can be considered healthy is very expensive and limited to couple choices.
Anyone can really attend this scool, it's convinent and an work with your schedule. I know a lot of my friends go here and it's really easy. The teachers and staff are very friendly
My classmates are often times the ones who help me learn the most.
As a non-traditional student who had finally returned to school after an absence of 20 years, LAVC provided a safe, beautiful and nurturing study environment where I could grow and thrive, and eventually earn a 4.0 GPA and my AA in Anthropology.
I wish I had known that there were clubs and activities at community colleges. I spent the first 2 semesters taking night classes not realizing there was a sense of community on campus and clubs to get involved in.
Well, I'm not really one to brag, per se, but if I did, I'd brag mostly about how seriously the school faculty and staff take their jobs, but at the same time, there is *quite* a 'laid-back' feel to the entire campus. The professors are all quite professional, friendly and approachable. They also take an active role in making sure you are getting any and all valid information, whether it be for one particular class, the transfer programs or activities on campus.
The most frustrating thing about my school, in my opinion, was the arts. They didn't have a photography major. Also, the fact that most of the teachers I had weren't that inspirational or pushed us to acheive greater things with our lives.
