This is one of the best community colleges in the nation.My dad and uncles went here in the 1950s. If you want to get your AA for cheap ,community college is the way to go. Excellent professors and staff. Great Athletics program, and the studio arts program is awesome. Counselor Brandon Di Amico is professional,encouraging and really seems to care ! VC is a 5 Star college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great community college but not the best. Some professors are great some are awful. Just a very general school with lots of school spirit. Class sizes are smallish but perfect for me. I’m happier her rather then Sonoma state university though. There’s uniform here and a basic understanding that we’re all here for one reason to benefit ourselves with education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been here a year and had an overall great experience with my teachers, the academics and even personal life. There has been plenty of help and encouragement. there are always going to be people who say the school is not up to par but that is also based on the students willingness to get the job done. Sure some teachers are harder than others and some could use a little more sympathy or help out a little more but other wise a great school to start with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura college is a great stepping stone to transferring to a university. Some of the classrooms need to be updated but the teachers make do with what’s provided (though AC would be nice during the hotter days). They have plenty of resources available and easily accessible. Their counselors are very helpful and informative as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura College was the the best and worst choice I could have made going into college. I had amazing experiences playing a team sport and getting involved on campus. However I don't believe they prepared me as well as I should have been to move on to a university. The facility are very nice and try and help as much as they can for example, the transfer center is one place I spent a lot of time at. They not only helped me fill out and submit my University applications, but they helped me find the right university for me based on my major and the campus feel I wanted. However this is the opposite for the counselors. Of course most are pleasant and friendly people however, they seem to not know what they are talking about when it comes to scheduling classes. Not only did I take a ton of classes I did not need to in order to fulfill the same requirement, but I also was unable to transfer within two years due to classes my councilor had told me I needed, which I later found out from the campus representative that this was false and I was taking classes I didn't need from transferring. The other thing that was horrible at Ventura college was the classes offered weren't always what a student would need to take. For example the start of a series of classes such as General Chemistry 1 was only offered in Fall and the General Chemistry 2 was only offered in Spring, however some of these classes are required and if you missed taking it in the semester it was available it would often add another year to the timeline of transfer. With the bad there was also good the sports team atmosphere gave me a sense of belonging and gave the campus a family feel. The clubs on campus also came with several networking opportunities and very beneficial field trips. Every campus has its ups and downs, but I would defiantly recommend Ventura College to those who are willing and able to take their education into their own hands.

Great foundation for a strong 4-year academic experience. This college has been a great resource for me to begin my college experience. I was able to take advantage of the various opportunities offered to me at VC. The professors have been available to me at all times and are more than willing to help. We have lots of resources available to us like the computer labs, tutoring center, library and student services.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura College has a nice atmosphere with motivated people who are looking to succeed in their education. The campus is kept clean and the library is opened all day including the weekends. There are plenty of clubs to join and things to do. The teachers could be better, ​however, overall it's great two-year college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that ventura college is an amazing college full of diversity and great courses. the classes are great and so are the professors. it is only my first year of college and so far so good. I plan and doing 4 years and try to get my nursing degree.

Describe a day on campus you'll never forget.

it was finals prep week and I was in the library in a study room with my friend. we were studying doing our work when the library staff came and told us that the school was being evacuated due to the Thomas Fires. As I walked out of the study room I could smell the smoke inside the library, thus why the whole campus was being evacuated. I was scared that maybe we weren't able to have a prep week, and that was exactly what had happened.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura Community College is a good starting point if one struggles financially or to those who are unsure of what they want to do for their career. The school offers many workshops and resources that are available to the students in order for them to succeed in their education. Classes are abundant and the campus is easy to navigate through. The professors are transparent and have the best intentions in their curriculum as they encourage students to meet up for study groups or see them during office hours.
