Yakima Valley College in Grandview is small and very accessible. It is good for anyone that needs that one on one assistance. If you don't want to be far away from home or if you want to work full-time, Yakima Valley College is perfect and works around your schedule. My only concern is I wish the campus was a little bit bigger and offered more classes.

Paola

Yakima Valley College is an okay college with supportive teachers. I only have a few problems, one problem is parking is a hassle to find after 9:30 am which is a bummer considering if you do not have a class before 9:30 parking is really hard to find. Another problem not only I have but many other students I have spoken with have is the financial aid department. They just do not seem as if they are trying and hardly do anything to help the students. they are more of a " oh well we can't do anything but wait so come back next week and we'll maybe have it but who knows" type of department and it upsets a large amount of students attending YVC. Other than that the school has a wide variety of clubs you can join which is nice.

Overall going to school at yakima valley college is pretty great, the people are very nice teachers are almost always avalible and willing to help you out. There are many opportunities to be involved in clubs and student government. I would recommend this school to others because the class size is small so it is more interactive and you get more one on one time.

Jackeline

I like attending YVC. The help the staff gives out is outstanding. Professors are very understandable and helpful. Overall the campus is great, leaders help others when they’re in need. We get updates on activities the campus might have. For it being a community college it’s anazing, especially when you’re on a budget, the tuition fee is not bad.

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

    If I was able to go back into time and talk with myself and give advice on college life and making the transition I would give all the full details on the experince. In my experince it was great but yet you still have to keep self-control and make more time on your homework and class. try not to become the guy that everybody looks at for all the fun and jus be yourself. When you have a chance to get money for school do not put it off and wait tell last minute work your hardest and it will all pay off in the end. You might struggle at first but once you get the hang of things it will be nothing but a smooth ride from the there on.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Well, I wasn't sure exactly what kinds of classes were offered at Yakima Valley Community College campus. The YVCC school I attend is a different campus, located in Grandview. A couple of things that frustrate me are: the Grandview YVCC campus lacks classes that I?ve been interested in, the YVCC campus in Yakima offers a variety more classes than it does here, but the problem is the travel distance between Grandview and Yakima. Another thing that was irritating was the unseccessfulness of the ITV classes, it was very difficult when the actual instructor was not in the room.
