Fernando - 04/04/2020

My overall opinion of San Bernardino Valley College is it does have its flaws, but it is a great community college. The professors that I have had so far are all great. They provide great detail in the syllabus and in their course material. They care about their students and want to help them succeed. Many professors from other schools do not care about the students. But the professors at valley do care and it shows just by how they teach because they seem so genuine. Also, because they will always do their office hours and not many students go so if one goes the student can stay as long as they like or when the professor has to leave because they teach many classes. The professors will do anything to help someone so they will not fail the class. The professors are great well the ones I have had so far. The staff is okay because sometimes they can be a bit rude like the financial aid staff or admissions and records. When I would go to financial aid office, they would always have a face like they were not in the mood and they would have attitude for no reason, and they would talk slow like if we didn’t understand. Not all financial aid staff are rude there some very sweet kind people. The admissions and records are the same way as financial aid. But they are the ones teaching so it shouldn’t really matter because as long as the professors are great that is what matters. Creating a bond is very important and they will do that so they could be mentors.

my over all opinions about my school is fairly good but security has to take charge of the kids who smoke a lot on campus and hide in certain places around campus to smoke weed and they have to take action on the bullying on school campus because some students are being affected but chose not to speak on there behalf

Naeli - 09/29/2019

I am apart of the Middle College program, so I am a high school student attending college with a bunch of adults. It sounds like a little too much to handle, but I have received so much support here from the teachers, other students, and various other tutoring centers on campus. Additionally, although our city receives a bad reputation, I have never felt unsafe on this campus.

Rose - 07/17/2019

I had no other options with this school, but I am grateful for the opportunity to attend. They didn’t necessarily have to open up their campus for us, but still did. People are never too pushy about my age and seem used to the idea of protégés. I’m very excited to put this school on my alma mater.

    Overall still to this day I belive I was a great sudent in high school, and I did eerything correctly grade wise, but if i could tell myself one thing it would be too look for more scholarships for more money, because it's hard not having a car to go to school, plus food, and expencess like a cell phone and a place to live etc. is really expencive. Another suggestion i would have givein myself is being good with money management, and only spend on needs, because that would have benefited me later on.
