Diablo Valley College Reviews

Great environment It's a really nice community college! The class and tuition fees are super low which allows you to take more classes with less money. Financial aid is always there to help and always have some sort of aid to hand out. The campus itself is super beautiful with new and modern-looking buildings and classrooms. There's a large pond in the middle of the campus where students like to hang out and study. All around the college, there are warm grass areas in the sun to chill between classes. The campus is right next to downtown pleasant hill where you can find the sunvalleey mall and tons and tons of stores and restaurants.

Well, here we are, at the end of the semester and, it has actually been overall very eventful and surprisingly better than expected. I got to meet lots of different and unique people, learned lots of new things and got to experience and live the start of my college experience. My first semester of my freshman year has already definitely made an impression on myself. Entering college has given me a reality check on who I am and where I want to be in the future.
After surviving almost a full semester, I can proudly say that I am confident in myself and what I’ve accomplished thus far. I think DVC did what it’s supposed to do for every new student. It took me out of my comfort zone and taught me about new ways of life without making others and I feel like we have to change our existing ways of living. So in other words, good job DVC!
