Napa Valley College has a green, bright, and friendly environment for its students. There are resources available for the students such as the Writing Center, Math Center, and even the Librarians who can help you find researching sources for your essays. The classes are good overall but there could be an improvement on the quality of content taught to the students.

I had a really good time at Napa Valley College. It is a peaceful and nice outdoor campus. They have two food trucks that come 4 or 5 days out of the week. There are great programs at the school like Trio, EOPS, DSPS, & Mesa programs to name a few. The professors are wonderful and are always helpful and understanding of their students & have excellent communication with them. NAPA Valley offers a lots of resources to get tutoring for different subjects in math, science, & writing center for English. What I wish could improve about the school is if they could get some food chain sponsors like subway, Starbucks or some similar collaboration in NAPA restaurants. So the students and the faculty could have better alternatives unlike now where there is only the same angel food truck that comes early day and serves American & Mexican food. If that’s not possible then maybe introduce more variety of food so that we could have more options.

Napa Valley College is a great starter-college. The general ed courses are relatively cheap with an abundance with great information. All students on campus are kind and helpful towards each other, and the teachers and faculty are generally very helpful to any problems or questions we may have. There are regular club promotions, workshops for various classes or skills, and transfer workshops. You will only do well if you are self motivated, but everyone on campus is more then happy to help out and be supportive of your goals.

Kaitlyn - 10/19/2019

Napa Valley is a great college for a student looking to pursue a business major or transfer to a university level. However, I found it personally challenging to grow in the medical field when the school did not prioritize a strong medical teaching environment. Also, I found a majority of the counseling provided from the school to be unhelpful and challenging.

They will come talk to you and make you feel welcome. Everyone seems at peace, probably because the campus gives off that kind of vibe. My classmates love participating in class discussions and like to form study groups. Everyone pretty much takes school seriously and don't mind lending a helping hand to others.

    The school perserves its natural surroundings. The only things that cover the grounds are the things that are needed like buildings, walkways and parking lots. The school has its own vineyard and solar panels. It is also right next to a river that is home to many different birds, animals, and fish. On the campus itself there are peacocks and roosters that run around everywhere. The whole campus is full of wildlife and will make you feel very in touch with nature.
