Evergreen Valley College Reviews

EVC was one of the best schools that I attened for the education, student involvement, the relationships that I built with the faculty, and my development. For the past eleven years, I had been at EVC for my college education. There were many instrucators, student tutors, faculty who redefined my skills as a student for subjects like Math, English, science, and history. There were times where I failed courses and I retook them for a better grade. Three years ago, I brought back the news paper club and rebranded Journalism to give a fresh start.
In addition to getting an education at EVC, the Disabled Student Program, Tutoring Center, and faculty were essential to my success as a student with a learning disability in language that affects reading, writing, and speaking. The Disabled student program helped numerous time with testing, assistive technology, and speaking for my behalf. The Tutoring Center sharpened my language skills for my English courses.
Review Your College
The things that are great about the school are the professors. Most of the professors that I've had are really great at what they teach and are very knowledgeable. For a community college, I think it's one of the better schools in the south bay.

That being said, the biggest downside is the food in the cafeteria. It's fairly small and there aren't a lot of options. And although I'm not very familiar or up to date with all the activities happening on campus, there's a lot of activity I see happening on a week to week basis. Great way to get involved with other students.
Evergreen Valley College is a college that is full of diversity, knowledge, and age group. Students that attend at this are always curious for knowledge and are motivated to do well. There are many who came back to college to expand their knowledge as well and many who have chose this college as a start. Professors here at this college always want the best for their students are willing to help students if needed. Evergreen Valley College is full of resources that students can always access for help.
