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!
Antelope Valley College is a wonderful place to kick-start your academic journey. Being that it is a 2 year institution for most programs, you save a great deal of money while enjoying a more intimate classroom setting. With smaller classes, you tend to learn on a deeper level and have greater access to professors that are more approachable and available than at a 4 year university. There are also many programs and extra curricular activities to get involved in covering a slue of differing interests. This college is going through a renovation to better meet the immediate community.
