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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura College is the perfect place if you want a quick education or and older person just trying to finish their degree. The facilities are small as well as the class sizes. However, there are surely to be an intellectual person out of every ten or so people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an okay community college, but the staff seem a little too relaxed. The school also does not seem to urgently help students transfer out into a CSU or a UC. The classes are alright, but the textbooks can be more expensive than the class ends up being. The whole atmosphere there is kind of laid back. It definitely is not the worst, but is far from the best school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

College where people have the option to do as they please with no regrets. A place where education is abundant but, the individual who so desires to get the education they need is given to them with the help of guidance counselors to help them on their own journey towards success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For community college this is a great start because they allow you to come to school here for free with the VC Promise which is extremely helpful for students with low income or for those who aren't sure what they want to be. Students here are eager to learn and have great goals or dreams. I have also seen other students from prestigious colleges say how unmotivated students were to do well in school, not in this college. Students come to classes, and are hard workers. The stigma of community colleges must end.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ventura College has a nice, spread out campus. Close to the beach and to local shopping areas. There isn't a functional cafeteria which is a big downside to the campus but the faculty is great. The counseling department is hit and miss. Depending on the type of classes you take varies on how big or small the class size will be. All in all a great little community college to start your college process. Most of the teachers are great and really do care about your success and you furthering your education and helping you get to the next step. Unfortunately there are some bad apples in the mix that may ruin certain subjects for you and some teachers seem a bit inexperienced. You get out what you put into it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back to my high school self there are some very important things I would tell myself. The most important thing I would tell myself is that I am going to fall, I am going to make big mistakes and I will survive them all. I will be better because of them. I would tell myself that it is ok to not understand everything right away, it doesn't make you less of a person. I would remind myself that a bad grade does not define your intelligence or you as a person. Lastly, I would tell myself that you will never be perfect and that is the best quality about yourself. No matter how hard it gets, you keep going.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is seeing students waste opportunities that are infront of them. Not utilizing all that the campus has to offer to help them reach their goals.
