What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is very close to home and a place that students are able to go while still being in a home town. It is something that is available to everyone around and a good opportunity to take classes when you can. The environment is amazing and something that everyone should take advantage of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended for Running Start and wasn't all that impressed with the instructors. I enjoy well involved the advisors and student council are they are what make this campus so great. The majority of the instructors I feel have lost their interest to teach and are here to collect the paycheck. For example, I had one instructor just come to class and tell us to read the books ourselves and self-teach. I understand as college students we should be able to manage but that to me is just not okay. The school is good and could be great if the instructors were a little more involved with the academics of their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a school that provides quality education for a good price. The professors (most of the time) really care about the students and their success. You will still have to work hard, but the professors are available if needed. The class size is perfect: typically about 25-35. Overall, I really enjoy YVC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will always treasure Yakima Valley College. YVC allowed me to see what it's like to be a college student before pursing a more prestigious university. Yes, the school can improve in the food and extracurricular activities departments. However, the faculty and resources that YVC provides for students is very thoughtful and effective. I would recommend YVC to anybody within the Yakima valley who wishes to pursue post-secondary education and stay close to home.

Yakima Valley College is an extremely welcoming campus. Everyone is very open to getting along and showing you around. They have numerous activities going on in the day as well. All the professors and staff are nice and make sure you are doing good in everything you need. They also keep regular class hours and reply to emails fast to answer any questions you might have. Overall awesome experience there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Yakima Valley College has a very aesthetic feel to it. There are sculptures all over the campus that have significant meaning to them, which make you think about different life perceptions. The professors and staff are very friendly, and are helpful most of the time. The athletics at this school are a lot more popular than I have seen at another community college. I am currently staying in the dorm rooms and they are quaint and provide basic everyday life things like air conditioning, running hot water, a functional kitchen, washing/drying units, etc. I would definitely recommend my school to future incoming freshman and would recommend to them to be involved in athletics or various groups on campus, because there are tons of groups to join and get more involved. :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.
