My experience has been good so far. When I first enrolled the counselors was so helpful, and really want to see the students make it. It was the kind of support I needed. My teachers are very cool, although you have some teachers with very strong accents that make it difficult to understand lectures! I like it. It's very easy to find your classes. The bookstore moves pretty fast, but that financial aid office is packed the first week if school. I think that's to be expected. Better make sure you have your parking pass, because campus security is always driving around I haven't seen anyone get their car towed but better safe than sorry. Oh yeah parking kind of sucks. It takes forever to get a parking spot people still literally sit In there car for 10 minutes before they pull out to leave. That can be very frustrating at times. There are a couple food places nearby.

Antelope Valley College is a really good junior college to attend. It is small and really easy to get around. Classes are all walking distance, and the campus is really nice to walk around! My experience with the teachers were excellent. There are a lot of classes, so it is really easy to fit school into your schedule. Counselors really listen to you and they try to help you out as best as they possible can. The atmosphere is great, and the food is not bad. There are a lot of clubs and activities to do around the campus. It is not too expensive either! I definitely recommend the school and I'm very glad I attended!
I began my academic journey at Antelope Valley College (AVC) in Fall 2017. My experiences here has helped me to uncover my passions and interests towards my major: Biological Sciences. I have been involved in several activities and have undertaken various classes that has prepared me not only for the rigor of upper division courses, but also the realities of life itself.
The honor's program at AVC is an amazing resource that has dramatically changed my life for the better. I have always sought to maximize my learning experience in all fields. As such, I’ve enrolled in a variety of honors courses ever since my first college semester, and have continuously done so for three years. Ranging from art, math, chemistry, physics, and beyond, the honor's program has not only made me more academically competitive but has also bestowed me with valuable skills, knowledge, and a burning will to learn more.
