Well to start off College is a sneaky way of saying Success Stories Here and Now. Personally and Honestly my opinion of Victor Valley College is that it is a College of Great seasons and a College of Striving Young adults and a College of Hope and Fortune.
My overall rating is based on the fact that this is a community college and its location which is the high desert. Victor Valley Community College will supply you with what you need academically. The facilities are clean and some of the buildings are new. The most glaring downfall to school is its counseling. If you are looking to transfer to a four-year university that is not San Bernardino, you must do your research on your own! The transfer department is worthless if you are considering a prestigious school. Be prepared to plan your own academic foundation.
Victor Valley College has a lot of potential. Yes, the financial aid department is painfully slow, the food sucks, and there isn't much to see but most of the teachers that I have met (actually, every teacher that I've enrolled with) cares about their students. They want you to succeed, they want you to get out there and make us all proud. Don't give up on this place. As bad as you may think it is, it carries a lot of people's hopes and dreams.
Vvc is a pretty good junior college . Many scholarship opportunities !!!!
I have only been in this school for one year and it has been okay so far. The food on campus is very good and I always eat there in between classes. It is also close to a few good restaurants and stores. It is very hard to sign up for classes because they do not offer enough classes to match how many students are enrolled. It is also very hard for transfer students like myself to get the classes they need to transfer to a university. Because of that reason I am stuck at this school for an extra year. Most of my teachers have been pretty good, but I did have to teach myself trigonometry this past semester.
This college doesn't really focus on the necessity classrooms or courses need. They have dipped a lot more of their money on things on the campus that aren't necessary like more parking lots or making a new entrance to the school. However, the art department is thriving on money the instructors and students use as well as other departments doing the same. Their online services aren't up to par as well, making it extremely difficult to get things done. It works well for a quick degree, however, this campus is lacking so much for its students it makes sense that it has lost its accreditation before.
Victor Valley College is way too overcrowded and it is very unnecessarily hard to get into the classes you need or want. The campus is also very unsafe at night, from what I have heard, and I have been advised to not take classes that take place after dark.
I absolutely love Victor Valley College, not just because of the beautiful lake and friendly ducks that live there but for the peaceful and safe environment that it has to offer. On top of that, I love that the professors and overall the staff care about really helping the students here achieve their goals.
Victor Valley College is a decent and respectable community college. They offer exactly what is needed for students to transfer to Universities or State schools. While they do not go above and beyond in all aspects, the staff and teachers, especially, do their best to assist students in their success.
I like it
Victor Valley Community College has a ton of opportunity waiting to be discovered. I believe that anyone could get the answers they ask. I think it is a great school with great academic activites. The professors are always eager to teach and ask any question that comes to them and their door is always open.
I think it's a good school. Not expensive and a good start towards your degree. The people around are very nice and helpful. Study groups are planned most of the time and is very helpful when there is a big text coming up and everybody helps each other out.
I am a new student to Victor Valley College. I have been on campus a limited number of times because I am an online student. I believe the online atmosphere could be improved and a few details about the school as a whole but for the most part it seems to be a great place to advance my education.
It's a viable college for the high desert community. I'm pretty sure people can transfer easily to better universities once you meet the specific requirements. I must say the staff is well-mannered and many of the students attending the college tend to mind their own business unless asked.
Even in my general ed classes the professors cared about what they were teaching and to whom. They were dedicated and prepared me for the skills I needed now.
As for the nursing professors, they are stellar. They are skilled and knowledgable and prepare you for boards like no other nursing school does. That's probably why they are top ranked in the nation. There's little room for slacking and they make that well known upon entering the program, but they are always available if you are struggling. They want you to succeed. Most importantly they want you to be able to stand on your own two feet your first day on the floor alone. They teach you to be safe, competent and compassionate.
I feel victor valley college is a great Community college focused on the students success. The campus provides many opportunities to counseling services, the transfer center, financial aid, disabled services, and the Extended opportunities program. For academics they offer the writing center and math lab.
There is definitely room for improvement. There needs to be a huge catch up on technology and some of the buildings need maintenance. The professors are nice, but they need to catch up with the students needs. There also needs to be more help for guiding students into the real world. Options for healthy food is lacking and it needs to be revised. Also resource friendly options need to be set up around campus (water fountains/water bottle stations, functioning vending machines).
My review is for the school's overall commitment to the success of their students. Teachers are fine, campus is great, student body is fantastic. Administration and student services is lacking and fails their students. Counselors are either overloaded or just entirely incompetent. Perhaps because of the school's low transfer rate, the counselors don't even bother. I've experienced and heard many experiences of incorrect and incomplete advise given by the counselors, and general lack of availability to even speak with a counselor which leaves many students in difficult situations with no direction or solutions. Other offices such as admission, records, financial aid, is difficult to get a hold of, unless you visit the school site. Class availability is an absolute joke!
My overall opinion of VVC is not very good. The staff there is not friendly or helpful. Numerous times I was mis-directed or mis-informed by admissions or counseling staff. It was nearly impossible to request information from someone who seemed like they wanted to help you.
Its OK. Honestly if you need to go to college and you are part of the area then by all means attend. I just honestly think we need better staff in the student services offices. The financial aid and bursars offices are just not as helpful as one would want.
Overall Victor Valley Community College serves it's purpose of educating the high desert. You can walk down the street and ask almost anyone if they attend the college and most will say yes. The campus is centrally located so the commute is amazingly short with very little traffic. The campus itself is beautiful, especially in the fall when the many trees on campus are changing color and dropping their leaves. The duck lake in the center of the campus provides a great place to sit and study with friends or reflect on the days lessons. This college provides the high desert with opportunities we may not have had access to if it were not here. I am thankful the school is so close to my home so that I may obtain my education in my very own hometown.
Victor Valley College has a good environment and some of the professors and staff is what makes the campus overall great they are willing to help and guide you in the direction that you need to get you read for your future and your career ! Definitely would recommend to people for their 2 years of college!
While not the best school in the world it is a good place to start off. There are some great teachers to be found, and the campus is typically clean, other than the waterfowl issues, and there's a great variety of students that all provide unique perspectives on topics.
I love going to this college and meeting new people. The teachers are great and the campus is so beautiful. The teacher help you out a lot and walk your through the steps to understand what they are teaching. The books store s very nice and organized and there is always a place to go to get information or help.
My overall opinion of Victor Valley College is that you have to be really sure of what you want to major in, only because it is the only community college in the high desert. It can be really difficult to sign up for the classes you want because so many students are enrolled. The college is nice, well kept, and they have added new buildings also.
They have a rigorous nursing program that I am currently enrolled in. The wait list to get into the 2 year ADN program is 1.5-2 years. I am very excited to be attending this nursing program out of the options that I have because the community speaks highly of the nursing students at Victor Valley College.
The staff that I have encountered have always been helpful, and they are always good about keeping everything updated.
It can be difficult to get some staff on the phone, such as a person from financial aid, or admissions and records but if you send an email, they get back in a timely manner.
Most professors have been helpful and really want their students to succeed. Most of them are also very raw, and do not coddle the students, rather get them ready for the real world.
Overall, Victor Valley College is worth the experience, you just have to be patient as a new student, fresh out of high school because it will not always be easy to enroll in the classes you planned for!
I like the overall environment of the school. There are long wait times at most administrative services but, they move efficiently. The classes are excellent and they offer a lot of online and hybrid classes. Teachers are easy to reach but, book information isn't posted until the last moment.
I enjoy Victor Valley College. There is somewhat of a stigma about it, but I feel as if I’m receiving the same education as other junior colleges at a cheaper price. The facilities are not spectacular, but everything is pretty modern and functional. I have only had wonderful and understanding professors, so all-in-all I would recommend going here.
My overall opinion of Victor Valley College is rather biased. I come from a large extended family of college goers. These family members have gone to well known and accredited universities. My experience with this college is rather unsatisfactory. The college isn't very interested in whether you pass or fail, they only care about attendance. I hope someday to transfer to a better college, but right now am stuck with the unmotivated people of the High Desert.
My overall opinion of Victor Valley College is that it is a good school over all. There is a couple of things that does not make it a great school but, the school does help me get the education that I need for getting my AA degree. The things that they can work on is their counseling system and the amount of classes provided. The counseling system is not well organized. They have a appointment system online but, I can never find a available appointment and when I try to call they just tell me to apply for a appointment online, this leads me without help. The other issue is the amount of classes provided on the campus. I understand that one the school is not big and two it is a community college, but it makes it difficult to graduate on time when I can not even get a class that I need to complete my AA degree for my major. There is different registration blocks set for students so sometimes by the time I can register the class that I need is completely full and sometimes depending on what the class is, VVC is only providing 10 classes total for that subject leading me to take longer to finish my education. Other than that overall it is a good school. It is a good community college to attend to if you would like to save money and get a good education. The professor are amazing and do a excellent job at teaching their students and attending their needs. The small class size is nice because it gives a student time to talk to the professor one on one or during lecture.
I love my school! My professors are always available. They respond to emails quite frequently. Everything is great as far as the campus goes. Students on campus are always friendly. I have not had a bad experience on campus at all. My school is like my second home.
I feel it`s a good school to go to. My instructors really want us to excel. If I or anyone in my classroom need help on any question the instructor and other students don`t go forward until that student gets the answer. We are encouraged to help one another.
My overall opinion of Victor Valley College is that this college have great teachers and they make sure they help their students all the way through their struggle. I love this school because they have counselors who will take their time and work well with you.
I think Victor Valley College (VVC) is a great college to attend if you are looking to save money and still receive a great education. It allowed me to further my education and receive thee Associate's degrees. The professors, academics, and students are diverse which provided me with experiences like being introduced to new cultures and taking on new challenges. I remember this one semester, I had a 70-year-old man in my class, along with a professor who had plenty of experience in his field and students from different states and backgrounds. Also, I was able to still enjoy my freedom and personal life while playing softball, taking extracurricular activities (Journalism), being a part of Phi Theta Kappa, and having a job due to the fact that Victor Valley College works around your schedule and is quite flexible. Again, I would recommend VVC to anyone who wants to save money, find out what they want to do with their lives, explore a wide variety of people, classes, and challenges, or just simply want to further their education.
I appreciate the dual enrollment classes and how open the proffesors.
I really enjoy this college. I have made many friends. The only downside is that the schools configuration is a little odd. This college could also do with more handicap accessibility because there are two story building and an elevator is hard to find. When I was having to use crutches there was a lot of stairs and it was hard to maneuver around with the crutches. however the teachers are always willing to help and are always asking if people need to schedule time during there office hours. Great school just has some hiccups.
Victor Valley College is a great community college which provides both vocation certificates and associates degrees to students who seek to further their education. Victor Valley College has vocational programs for nursing, firefighting, solar panel instillation and much more. I recommend anyone from the high desert to attend Victor Valley College.
It’s a stepping stone . Preparing you for your field of practice. A mild tempo no one gets left behind if you need help they’re here to help .Once you transfer you’re going to be ready for that university 100% ! Vvc opens doors for countless possibilities, with professors who will not let you down . workshop And tutoring whenever you slowly starts to stumble. 14 page essay comes easy with the help from the writing center. Positive, inspiration, motivation and Consistency.
Nice local college. Simple but still beautiful campus. Small enough to get to know people but big enough to feel like a big campus. The classes are not hard to register for if you are diligent and sign up on time. I have had a positive experience with the professors.
The professors I have had are very good. They work well with students and are available for any questions regarding class. I am a student in concurrent enrollment so they come to my campus but, I have had the opportunity to visit the campus a few times. I would say overall the campus is clean and features a library and study rooms with many more amenities.
