I spent my freshman year here before transferring to a four-year university and I wouldn't change anything! The professors that I had were kind, caring, and very passionate about the subject they teach. The campus is also very diverse -- I met peers and students from different backgrounds and ages. As for location, it is walking distance to a small plaza with restaurants and cafes. EVC is a great place to consider if you're close to the area and in need of taking classes!

Veteran counselors, teachers and everyone else who has helped me helped me greatly! I learned a great amount of knowledge from my teachers and they're great and understanding people as well. The campus is nice and still ready for new features to make it into a more attracttive campus.
The instructors here are a hit or miss. I've had three good instructors here, out of nine. Some instructors are horrible, and I almost dropped their class, but decided to hang in there and finish because I didn't want to repeat the class. Students are friendly here. I have met a lot of nice, helpful people, including the staff at the book store, cafeteria, and counseling office. I received my AA in Health Science, back in May of 2017, and will be starting their RN program in Spring 2019. I'm excited about this, and nervous at the same time. Good luck to you future students! Keep your head up!
