Antelope Valley College Reviews

Antelope Valley College is a great community college. It's a starting point to benefit your live. Education is power! I wish this school gave more bachelor opportunities. They do have a couple like nursing but that is a small portion from the rest of the students trying to continue there studies. Since this college is ever affordable, many students do not have the financial needs to go to an expensive university. They professors are there for the students. So far every teacher I had would help me with any problem even on there own time (lunch breaks or after school hours). They want each student to succeed and they give the students the grade they deserve from tests grades, homework, participation in lectures and labs. Antelope Valley College strides to help the community and fellow students by, handing out free food and drinks. They also have free tutoring most of the time unless it is a holiday. This college gives out many helping hands to conquer there tasks to receive a certificate or diploma. Now it just depends on how determinate do the students are to study and pass there courses.
Review Your College
Antelope Valley College is a community college located in Lancaster, CA. Although it is in a residential area, local businesses and the freeway are a short drive away. The campus has many different buildings and classrooms with well-qualified instructors. Although initial registration seems to be a little complicated, there are many helpful staff to assist and counselors to guide you. The education received is top quality for low cost and the college has a guaranteed transfer program for those wishing to continue on to University of California or California State University colleges.
As I put a close to my first semester in college, I can say that I was able to get the most out of my community college experience. Although at first I felt as if I missed out on the "full" college experience in terms of being able to live in my own dorm at a 4-year university, being miles away from home, and thus making all of my decisions by myself--in short, being independent--I think I got lucky in that through my first semester of college I was able to learn more about myself and my personal preferences. Attending a campus that's not as expansive as UCLA or Princeton, I felt less distant from my peers because they wouldn't be people who I'd meet once around campus only to never see again. In terms of professors, it's pretty inevitable that there will be the occasional teacher who you won't "click" with and some classes where you won't feel like you're getting the most out of the course. However, as always, if there's a will, there's a way.
