Antelope Valley College Reviews

It was an okay experience. Being completely online my first year wasn't fun and I don't remember much of what I learned, but being online was beyond their control because of COVID. When we came back to the campus, I thought it was nice being back in person after being completely online for so long. I even took a part time job at the Learning Center as a desk assistant and some of my closest friends I have today are from that job. I'm graduating from AVC knowing I have some great friends to lean on. The reason why I'd give AVC 4/5 stars is I had an academic advisor tell me I had too many units where it could give me a much later registration date and I had to take a certain class that ended up not counting for my major at the time so that was a little annoying. On a positive note, I had good psychology professors who have prepared me for my bachelor's program next fall. Going to AVC to really figure out what I wanted to do with my life after graduating high school was a good decision.
Choosing a college is a pivotal moment in one's educational journey. Antelope Valley College (AVC), nestled in the heart of Lancaster, California, was my choice, and it has proven to be an experience marked by personal growth, academic development, and lasting memories. Throughout my time at AVC, I have come to appreciate the college for its diverse student body, dedicated faculty, and strong community ties, which together have shaped my educational and personal development. Antelope Valley College is deeply ingrained in the local community. The college's commitment to community engagement is palpable, providing ample opportunities for students to get involved. Whether through volunteer work, internships, or community events, AVC encourages students to be active participants in the growth and well-being of the Antelope Valley region. These connections extend beyond the campus, allowing students to gain real-world experience and make lasting contributions to the community.
The staff is very friendly and always will to help. There is always someone informing the students on all the programs available. They help with not only free tutoring but transportation and food. The professors seem to want the best for their students, to see them succeed and help them with any problems or concerns. I like that there are many programs for everyone especially those who are first generation and low income. These programs have helped me become more assure in my decision of transferring to a university. They have also helped me get free textbooks which saved ms money that I didn't have to worry about getting. They made my first few months a great and stress free experience. I know if I ever have an issue with anything I can reach out to the staff and they will help me. The campus even has job opportunities so they can work with your class schedule. Theres no need to worry about having a job that does not work with your class schedule. Overall amazing campus!
Antelope Valley College gave me the opportunity to figure out what path I wanted to take after finishing my general education. The faculty and staff were all very helpful. Teachers provided the best opportunities to succeed and they not only taught their students, but they guided them as well. I really enjoyed being able to work in an environment where I was not only supported, but accepted as well. They helped their students on a path to greatness no matter the circumstance. The campus as a whole was very inclusive and non-discriminatory. Everyone there was extremely kind and informative. I really loved their biology classes. The science department was extraordinary. There was never a moment when I did not want to attend my biology classes at AVC. Their labs were sanitary and neat. Everything was well kept and respected. I would like to see the campus grow more. There is a lot of changes happening as it is and it would be nice to go back one day and see how they have improved.
The classes were fine but the counselors didnt help me to their best ability. I was always being tossed from one counselor to another. That pushed back my transfer date.
I love the small campus of AVC, though it can become creepy when there are random people coming up to you. I love the size of the classrooms and many of the professors are accepting.
I haven’t been on Campus yet, but the services here are great. I am satisfied with the classes I’ve taken and the ability to have them online is very helpful. With the teachers being easily accessible and counselors, it makes learning more effective.
I love the new imporvements being made to the school. These improvements have enhanced my study skills snd improved my overall grades.
I am a current student at AVC. It feels a bit like an extension of high school, due to the area. Despite this, I commend the community college for its ongoing efforts to improve and provide more opportunities to its students. The people in Palmdale and Lancaster, young and old, really need educational opportunities. I have had good experiences with professors that are caring, helpful and want you to succeed. I would like to see more event diversity and better outdoor sitting/study areas. I feel that the campus is not as welcoming and engaging as I would like it to be. I hope to see AVC continue to nurture its community going forward.
I think the campus is a great layout and I love that they are updating some of the buildings. It’s also very nice and convenient that they have opened the Palmdale location for students (like me) who live on that side of town. Only complaint is that they should have more classes available in Palmdale as well as keeping the bookstore open during the summer. Other than that, both campuses are really nice and have a lot of events during the semester that seem inclusive to all students.
I loved how accomodating my professors were on explaining assignments to me. I was also absent during some of the semester and the teachers were very understanding. They also helped me understand the material and helped me catch up on work so I would not fall behind. I really appreciated being able to work with students on a final paper in my psychology class with online classmates. I learned to write college plus level essays and work in groups with different types of classmates. Antelope Valley College is an amazing college. It help you prepare for the university. As far as change I do not see anything as of right now. For a while there I wish they had more parking spots closer to the science building but they ended up opening up Lot B which solved that.
The staff has been supportive of my academic needs and the enhancements done to the facility have made it easier to access learning tools (i.e anatomy bones available for outside study sessions). I would love to see an improvement in the library, the modern advances made in the surrounded builds makes it a most aesthetically pleasing space to work in and the library could benefit from this feature.
I have been dual enrolled to Antelope Valley college for two years of high school and I have had a pleasant experience. Most of my fees and book expenses were paid for by my school, so all I had to do was focus on passing all of my classes. Most of my professors were incredible, there were only about two that I felt could have been more sympathetic. Overall, I feel like the college should make sure that the professors set a good reputation for the school. It is very well known that some o the professors are rude and unhelpful in order for students to be more successful, I think the college needs to improve or set goals for what they look for in their faculty for the sake of the students.

The community is great and well connected with one another. Although, this is a great starting college to get a taste of further education outside of high school, it is an open campus. People walk their dogs, run, skate, etc. on the campus as if it’s a park. Driving on parking lots having to cater to these people are annoying and can sometime be dangerous. People who aren’t supposed to be on the campus are which poses possible threats to the community.
A really good school with a calm atmosphere and challenging courses. I would like to see a change in the building around campus due to many of them being dated.
I love the small environment and community built here. The professors here are all determined to see their students succeed and I've enjoyed the classes I've taken so far.
